Ankara: GL events adds a new high potential destination

A new international destination with strong growth potential

Ankara as Turkey's capital has many strengths to become a major destination for international business tourism. And with the country's strong potential for development highlighted by 9% growth in 2010 and same expectation for 2011, Ankara is today well positioned to attract major national and international events.

A 20-year concession* to operate the new Convention and Exhibition Centre

With 80,000 m², an auditorium seating 3,100 and 15 meeting rooms, this venue has an ultramodern and highly modular design ideally suited for hosting every type of event. And with a hall of 10,000 m2, it also offers the largest exhibition area available in Ankara.

*10-year contract subject to renewal.


The Group's objective: developing Convention and Exhibition Centres

In collaboration with its partner Serenas, Turkey's leading PCO, GL events has the capacity to deploy its business model for developing the creation and duplication of new events. With the addition of this high-quality venue in the Turkish capital expected to achieve high occupancy rates, GL events and Serenas will further optimise operating performances. This venue is expected to generate average annual revenue of €15 million, thus creating added value to Turkish economy.
