Turkish tourism players meet Iranian counterparts to attract travellers

Published on : Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Tourism stakeholders of Turkey’s Central Anatolian province of Kayseri had a meeting with their colleagues in the Iranian capital of Tehran to boost tourism between the two countries.


“We are in Tehran, presenting the entertaining touristic aspects of Kayseri and [Mount] Erciyes to Iranian tourism players in order to boost incoming tourists and fulfil the touristic potential these cities hold,” Cahit Cıngı, the chairman of Erciyes Inc., a company owned by Kayseri Municipality to boost the province’s tourism, told Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency.


Mount Erciyes is the highest summit in Anatolia and one of Turkey’s top destinations for skiing and snowboarding.


The meeting between Turkish and Iranian tourism players was held on July 16 in the Tehran branch of Turkish Airlines, with the aim of increasing touristic activity between the two countries.


In order to introduce Kayseri, Turkish tourism players showed short films on the famous Cappadocia, a historical region in Central Anatolia famous for its chimneys, and the province itself to their Iranian colleagues.


Then a presentation on Mount Erciyes was given by Cıngı, who emphasised skiing as a popular tourist attraction.


“Our Iranian guests [tourists] spend roughly $1,000 per day on average during their visit,” Ali Koray Özandaç, the head of Kayseri Tourism Operators Association (KAYTİD), said in an attempt to explain the importance of tourism from Iran.
