Event Planning

the perfect destination.  An ancient yet modern city, Istanbul is renowned for its historical, cultural, and natural beauty.  Our home city has become a favorite choice for international corporate and private gatherings. As the capital of three successive empires, Istanbul embraces both Europe and Asia as the crossroads of the Old World and the new. Because of its rich past and present, Istanbul is host to an unprecedented variety of indoor and outdoor venues for meetings, incentives, and events.

Meeting Planning & Organization

Strategy sessions, workshops, briefings and other formal gatherings are often a key part of an incentive program.  We can help you choose and reserve an ideal location for your meeting - be it a formal high-tech conference room or the Grand Salon of a historic waterfront mansion.   Any meeting can be designed in accordance with the style and spirit of your program. For some ideas for meeting venues, please refer to our “Venues” section.

Specially-Selected Room Gifts

According to your preferences and budget, we can supply tasteful and authentic room gifts for your group. The gifts we choose are usually representative of the finest examples of Turkish handicrafts, such as handpainted ceramic items, encrusted copper or silver plates, gift boxes with Ottoman miniatures, wooden boxes (handpainted or decorated with mother-of-pearl), backgammon sets, or Iznik tiles, just to name a few! 

Team Building Activities

For those who are interested in enhancing their employees’ teamwork skills while increasing motivation, we can happily suggest various team-building activities. Pleasurable sporting activities, thought-provoking games and friendly competition, all can help to break down barriers, promote enthusiasm, cooperation and overall team achievement.  CTC Turkey can design indoor or outdoor activities for a corporate group of any size. By combining the beauty of Istanbul's historic settings with professionally-designed activities, we merge teamwork skills training and the excitement of discovering the exotic culture of Turkish culture while providing the benefits of being on holiday. 

Technical Equipment

As often is the case, any given hotel's or other venue's meeting and banquet facilities provide only standard technical equipment which may not be sufficient. Upon your request, we can supply additional equipment for your business meeting or special event:laptop projectors, LCD screens, professional light and sound equipment, cordless microphones, etc.
