And Istanbul Lütfi Kirdar ICEC knows that long-established companies can only continue their growth and achieve permanent success through continuous change. We owe our leading position to our dedication to such an unceasing change and development. We are proud that we have been the first in the congress tourism sector for more than 15 years. We renewed and modernized both the interior design and the facade of our building. We also made new investments for technological developments and service quality which would form the base for change and dev elopment. And we crowned all that by renewing our corporate logo.”
The Chairman of the Board Mr. Basaran ULUSOY, who ounded UKTAS (International Congress Facility Management Company) in 1993, also gave a speech saying “I foresaw the effectiveness of congress tourism back in those days and I put my faith in it. And here we are today. Istanbul Lütfi Kirdar ICEC, is most definitely the flagship of congress tourism in Turkey. Today, we are able to host 40,000 people a day for congress tourism. ”
