Turkey’s tourism sector hopes for a tourism recovery and visitor numbers by 2017. In WTM in London, General Director of the Turkish Tourism Ministry’s Promotion Office, Irfan Onal was present among other dignitaries and Turkey’s 800-meter-square stand drew a lot of attention from tourism traders. Key attractions of the country like Istanbul, Mugla, Antalya, Diyarbakir, Denizli and Konya cities were promoted.
Onal said that in Turkey, maximum visitors are from the UK. Due to recent militant attacks and disturbance in the country, there was a drop in visitor numbers, but the situation is expected to be normal in 2017.
At the WTM, there were more than 50 tourism sector representatives from Turkey. There was also another stand from the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). Needless to say, the stands drew a lot of attention at the world’s second-biggest tourism fair. The Turkish Airlines was also there at the WTM to showcase its global network.
