Turkey, the new hot spot for tourism

Hurriyet Daily News - Turkey has become the new hot spot for tourism development as the country attracts international investors to participate in its rapidly growing hospitality market, according to Jonathan Worsley, the co-organizer of the 2011 Central Asia & Turkey Hotel Investment Conference (CATHIC), which started on Monday in Istanbul.

“We chose Turkey as a destination for the first CATHIC since it is a trading hub for the region and offers excellent networking to reach neighboring markets,” said Worsley in an interview with the press, adding that the country offers great opportunities for global investors in hospitality, as the country welcomed 29 million tourists last year.

The conference will continue until Wednesday at the Ceylan Intercontinental Hotel in Istanbul. The event will host 320 participants from 30 countries meeting to discuss hotel investment opportunities in Turkey and Central Asian countries.
