MCI opens new office in Istanbul

Geneva, 6 May 2015.  MCI, a key driver of innovation in the global meetings, events, association and congress industries, today announced the opening of a new office in Istanbul, Turkey. 

MCI first launched its services in Turkey just over a year ago with the acquisition of Ankara-based 3Events, a promising start-up focused on corporate and association event management.

Ufuk Yavuz Tümer, one of the three founders of 3Events, will lead the new office in Istanbul, with a focus on developing business in the corporate meetings, events and incentives and destination management (DMC) markets. 

“By reinforcing our presence in Turkey with the strategic location of Istanbul, we will help many more local and international clients deliver inspiring events, incentives and congresses in this magical meeting place of East and West,”  said Ufuk Yavuz Tümer, Director of DMC, M&E and Operations, MCI Istanbul. 

MCI Turkey has already made a mark on the local industry, winning the ACE of MICE 2014 “Best Newcomer Meeting Management Company” Award earlier this year. 

The launch of MCI Istanbul will reinforce MCI’s capacity to offer its unique services and solutions to organisations across the India, Middle East & Africa (IMEA) region and expand service offerings to clients interested in engaging audiences and hosting congresses and events in this fast-growing market.
