Being part of the event production team in 2014 for inVOYAGE I would like to wish the very best for the 2015 show to Debbie and Richard again this year. Here is their release announcing what will be happening in Turkey in October this year.
Second edition of inVOYAGE hosts industry leaders at Bodrum, Turkey 5-7 October 2015
inVOYAGE, the industry event focusing exclusively on the international luxury incentive, corporate retreats and high-end events sector, takes place this year in Bodrum, Turkey hosted at the Kempinski Barbaros Bay Hotel and Mandarin Oriental, from 5-7 October www.invoyage.net.
Following last year’s inaugural event in Portugal, inVOYAGE brings high-end, hosted MICE buyers and luxury sellers together for 2.5 days of business, networking and education. The event expects to attract 120 international senior executives to Bodrum – up 50% – who will each undertake up to 48 one-to-one appointments, all pre-matched.
Commenting on the creation and growth of the show, Debbie Joslin, Director inVOYAGE said: “This sector has, for some time, deserved its own focus. We wanted an event that cuts through the masses, clearly representing high-end margin meetings, and inVOYAGE does exactly that.
“Last year we attracted delegates from Europe, USA, Australia, Brazil, China, Saudi Arabia and South Africa. This year we are expecting to host 120 handpicked suppliers and buyers, who have recognised the opportunities when bringing like-minded, senior professionals together to develop new business like popular scuba product reviews and other scuba products for travel, contacts, network and expand their horizons through new thinking. ”
