Izmir is a picturesque metropolitan city, located on the northern coast of Turkey’s Aegean region. Bordered by mountains to the south, the city is built around the immense Gulf of Izmir, the largest seaport in the region.
With 300 days of sunshine every year, its welcoming and hospitable people, “Beautiful Izmir”, as it is known in Turkey, is a touristic paradise on earth with its coastline, beaches, mountains, plateaus, thermal spring, forests, agricultural produce unique to the Aegean and its climate.
A city of contrasts, Izmir offers the visitor the best of both the modern and ancient worlds steeped in history, while at the same time, a cosmopolitan and vibrant city.
Although few of Izmir’s older buildings remain, there are still interesting archaeological and historical sites. Ruins from the Greek, Roman and Byzantine periods are spread all over the city and in the surrounding hills. Izmir Kemeralti market is a huge bazaar in the city center that dates to the 17th century. The clock tower at Konak Square, built in 1901, is considered the symbol of Izmir.
By attending our conference you have a chance to browse the boulevards, walk the elegant seafront, ride a century-old cliff-face elevator and visit some of the most extensive Roman ruins outside Pompeii.
The beginning of autumn is a perfect time for exploring sights of this beautiful city, since it is not a peak season for the tourists and the average temperature for this period is 20-23 degrees Celsius.
