Delegates will stay at the Lujo Hotel in Bodrum, a luxury all-inclusive resort with an in-house Convention Centre where the business sessions will be held.
Türkiye previously hosted the Convention in Antalya in 2012 and in Istanbul in 1996.
The host partner for 2023 is the Türkiye Tourism Promotion and Development Agency (TGA).
Mark Tanzer, ABTA Chief Executive, said: “I am excited that Bodrum will be hosting the 2023 Travel Convention. This wonderful resort town is a much-loved destination that I’m sure will continue to grow in popularity. The Lujo Hotel is a superb new arrival on the scene, and one that I know our delegates will relish experiencing.
“This is the first time that Bodrum will have hosted ABTA’s Travel Convention, but the third time we will have visited Türkiye in our event’s history, which shows just how much this country has captured the hearts of UK holidaymakers. It was a highly impressive and detailed bid from the TGA, and a fantastic Convention is in prospect for 2023. I’d like to thank the hosts for welcoming us once again.”
Yalçın Lokmanhekim, General Manager, Türkiye Tourism Promotion and Development Agency, added: “Türkiye is honoured to have been chosen to host ABTA’s prestigious Travel Convention in Bodrum in 2023. The UK is a market of strategic importance to Türkiye. Bodrum is a very popular Turkish destination for British visitors, and is easily accessed through a wide choice of flights from airports across the UK.
“It offers many stunning beaches, wonderful cuisine, plentiful shopping, and is steeped in history. We look forward to welcoming representatives from the UK travel industry to Bodrum next year.”
