Throng to Istanbul from all across the world

Turkey is situated at the crossroads of civilizations and plays as a bridge between the East and the West for centuries. The rich historical and cultural background of Istanbul, combined with its advanced transportation facilities and a variety of accommodation options, makes the city one of the best places for such a large, global fair.

Another important aspect strengthens the bridge mission that Istanbul performs between the East and the West is the visa agreements between the Turkey and the shining and rising stars of East such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Iran, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan etc. By means of this, ITM 2018 is going to play a major role in the integration of the both sides of the world by receiving a visitor throng from these countries.
