MCI acquires 3Events, offering unparalleled congress and event management services for the Turkish market
Following the acquisition of 3Events, a promising start-up focused on corporate and association event management, MCI today announced the exciting launch of MCI Turkey.

The launch 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.

From the Ankara-based office, local clients will now have access to MCI’s unique experience management, brand enhancement, content, digitisation and globalisation strategies, enabling them to unlock their potential, drive business results, enhance organisational performance and grow globally.

“Although a young start-up, the 3Events Team has a combined 25 years’ experience in managing corporate and association events, as well as in-depth knowledge of local clients and their challenges,” said Sumaira Isaacs, Chief Operating Officer, India, Middle East and Africa. “This acquisition will establish MCI’s presence in Turkey, provide our growing regional client-base with an additional location from which to access MCI’s strategic services and bring innovative new strategies to the Turkish market.”

3Events was created by entrepreneurs Barış Kahriman, Ufuk Yavuz Tümer and Koray Tuncer, who share MCI’s belief that “when people come together, magic happens.” All three founders are delighted to be joining forces with the globally recognised group and will drive the growth of MCI Turkey in various high-level roles.

Barış Kahriman will head up the new office as General Manager, MCI Turkey, while Ufuk Yavuz Tümer will drive commercial growth as Director of Operations & Business Development and Koray Tuncer will lead the development of the association market as Director Institution & PCO.

“By combining our local knowledge and well-established connections with MCI’s global expertise, best practices and buying power, we are in a unique position to help our clients make their ambitious goals a reality,” said Barış Kahriman, General Manager, MCI Turkey. “As MCI Turkey, we are committed to adopting versatile and original approaches to help local clients unlock their potential, enhance organisational performance and drive real change.”
