What is your evaluation of the past year of tourism industry? Do you have any predictions for 2024?
Tourism industry is liable to yearly changing dynamics and various inclinations. According to the latest data from Turkish Statistical Institute, tourism revenue increased by 20,1% in the first 9 months of last year and was $41,999,592,000. We also see that the number of people who visited our country was 44,6 million. This is an impressive result for 2023 where we experienced important and critical processes like the earthquake and an election.

Nowadays, we see that tourism industry too is going through important changes under the influence of technology. Innovative ideas such as virtual reality, customized products merging with technology play critical roles in creating awareness in the industry. In this context, not just buying the technology but investing in technology and creative ideas will become an important strategy for those who want to shine in the industry. In this period, we believe that those who wait patiently will reap the fruits of their efforts in technology and innovation.

Again, we expect tourism to be the driving force in Turkey in 2024. Even though there’s a deceleration in the general expansion, consumers will continue to resist. We predict that Turkey and Egypt will be among popular destinations in 2024.
