Bookings open soon, on 16 April, for ABTA’s 2012 Travel Convention held at the luxurious, state of the art, all-inclusive Cornelia Diamond Golf Resort & Spa in Belek, a short drive away from Antalya in the South of Turkey. The Cornelia Diamond is considered the World’s Leading Fully Integrated Resort 2011 by the prestigious World Travel Awards, a five star complex, with a spa, sports and convention centre and its own 27 hole golf club. Additional accommodation will be provided in the outstanding five star Susesi Luxury Resort next door to the Cornelia.
Mark Tanzer ABTA Chief Executive said; “The 2012 Travel Convention is only six months away and with the exceptional facilities and accommodation on offer at the Cornelia and Susesi resorts, delegates will come away with some amazing memories. For the first time in its history the Convention will be taking place in an all-inclusive resort which will help ensure that everyone can budget ahead of the event. Our Turkish hosts have already surpassed themselves with the quality of venue and they deserve our warmest thanks for welcoming us to their beautiful country.”
Tolga Tuyluoglu, Director of the Turkish Culture & Tourism Office in London said: “We are incredibly excited to be hosting The Travel Convention in Turkey for the first time since the event took place in Istanbul in 1996. We look forward to welcoming delegates to Belek and hope that this will give the UK travel industry an opportunity to experience the superb quality of this area’s all-inclusive resorts at first hand, and the chance to come and explore Turkey further.”
