‘Become an Ambassador of Congress for Istanbul’ and help the World meet in Istanbul.
With the ‘Become an Ambassador of Congress for Istanbul’ programme created and executed by ICVB, we are expanding Istanbul’s congress portfolio together. With the ‘Become an Ambassador’ programme, it is up to you to bring international congresses and meeting to Istanbul. If you are attending to international congresses and meetings as an academic or sector professional, if you are a member or founder of an association or organisation that attends to international congresses and meetings, if you are involved on deciding the destination of the international congresses and meetings, then announce your meetings and become an ambassador to receive an invitation letters. Let the ICVB help complete the candidacy processes and open up new doors for Istanbul’s congress tourism.
How does the Candidacy Process work? How is a congress or meeting brought to Istanbul?
First of all, the international associations or federations apply to take the planned conference or meeting to the city they desire. In other words they need to send an official invitation letter. After the official invitation letter, the process usually follows the rules set by international associations and approved by all member countries. All international associations and federations have 'their own' procedures on selecting the destinations. Although these procedures are quite similar to one another, decision mechanisms and candidate requirements may differ. On the candidacy procedures, the ICVB helps the associations and federations on several services such as preparing the presentation, the stage and required documents, sending the invitation letter, preparing the candidacy dossier, coordinating with the local authorities, and also inviting and accommodating the deciding authorities in the city during their exploration trip. ICVB is always ready to advise and serve on every congress and meeting planned in the name of the city Istanbul. If you would like to inform us on your congress or meeting, please fill out and send us the congress declaration form below.
