Dear Colleagues,
 
EMITT, the largest tourism exhibition in East Mediterranean and Europe, opens its doors for the 23rd time to bring together the hotels, tourism agencies, hotel managers, towns, entrepreneurs, tourism professionals, and people interested in tourism both in Turkey and around the world. 
 
As the Turkish Hoteliers Federation (TÜROFED), we are happy and proud to host EMITT, which has become increasingly more successful in years, together with the Turkish Tourism Investors Association (TTYD) and Ekin Fuarcılık.
 
We continue on our journey even stronger together with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, relevant public institutions, and private sector elements despite all difficulties. As we are about to finish 2018, the year in which we have taken important steps to regain our position in the world, we believe that 2019 will be a year in which we will strengthen our position and move forward. We, as TÜROFED, will do our best and continue our efforts so that the tourism industry achieves its targets. From this perspective, we fully believe in the importance of exhibitions. In this context, EMITT, which has become a center that directs the international tourism movements thanks to the efforts of all industry members, will continue to grow and make our industry stronger as Turkey’s largest and world’s one of the top five tourism exhibitions. 
 
We believe that the exhibition, which hosted 1,065 participants from 85 countries in the previous year, will be a big success this year and significantly contribute to our industry.
 
Wish you great success in the coming year. 
 
 
Best Regards, 
Osman Ayık
