The Istanbul Chamber of Commerce also joins as a new exhibitor for 2015, as the chamber look forward to celebrating the city and showcasing the historic, cultural, artistic riches Istanbul has to offer.
Mr. İbrahim Çağlar, President of the Executive Board of The Istanbul Chamber of Commerce, explains: “Istanbul Chamber of Commerce looks forward to participating in one of the world’s most prestigious and significant tourism fairs, World Travel Market Latin America, with a stand concept focused on the presentation of Istanbul. As Napoleon Bonaparte once said “If the world were a single state Istanbul would be its capital”. Therefore we believe that home to a combination of different religions, languages and cultures throughout its 8500 year old history so this major metropolis has to be introduced in the most magnificent way possible to the Latin American market, which is extremely important for us.
