“We are thrilled to show our wonderful destination, services and capabilities in Turkey to the Canadian MICE market,” says Eda Özden, MEP’s managing director. “With SGM on the ground in Canada assisting us to do the required legwork, we feel that Turkey is an important and diverse destination. From the metropolitan city of Istanbul to the surreal swooping rock valleys of Cappadocia, to the bustling Mediterranean hub of Antalya, to the mighty ruins of Ephesus, Turkey has an abundance of exciting MICE related elements to offer.”

“MEP is a fantastic addition to our portfolio and we are pleased to offer Turkey again to the Canadian MICE market through MEP,” says Jan Zandboer, president, SGM. “Personally, I love Turkey and its sheer variety of offerings. Culturally, culinary and creatively you will find it hard to find another destination that comes close. And getting there is easy. Turkish Airlines offers direct service from Toronto and Montreal to Istanbul and its brand new state-of-the-art airport. In short, Turkey has all the elements to organize an unforgettable program.”
