GL Events And Serenas Tourism To Operate New Convention Centre in Ankara

GL events and Serenas Tourism of Turkey have collaborated to win the tender for managing the Ankara Chamber of Commerce Convention and Exhibition Center, the new convention and exhibition centre in Turkey's capital of Ankara. The ten-year contract was signed by ACC President Bezci, GL Events CEO Olivier Ginon and Serenas Group CEO Mustafa Gurbuz.

Built by the Ankara Chamber of Commerce, the Center has an ultra-modern and highly modular design suited for hosting a variety of events. It is a sizable meeting space of 80,000 m² with an auditorium that seats 3,100 as well as 15 individual meeting rooms. With a hall of 10,000 m2, it offers the largest exhibition area available in Ankara.

The venue is expected to generate an average annual revenue of €15 million.

Gurbuz commented: “Ankara has a tremendous potential as a destination and it needs to be well presented. This convention centre is a great resource for this purpose. If we can bring global organizations to Ankara, we can surely create an important hub here.”
