With a keen outlook to promote the tourism potential of Turkey, which is stricken by uncalled for security issues, the event invited leaders from the global travel and tourism industry as speakers, including tourism ministers, digital influencers, airline professionals market research leaders.

The summit was designed to share the world tourism vision with the professionals of Turkey, in order to contribute to the national economy by increasing the potential of tourism. While India remains a key market for Turkey and its tourism industry, events like this are aimed at optimising the growing outbound travellers from India and the rest of the world.
