Turkish and Bulgarian tourism executives want ease in obtaining visas!

Bulgaria, who wants to take Turkey’s success in the tourism sector as a role model, gathered public and private sector representatives from both countries together at the famous ski resort Pamporovo. After the meetings, the goal in short term has been “Improvement of Bulgaria’s tourism potential based on Turkey’s experience in the field of tourism and increase of tourism volume between the two countries by providing visa ease for tourists who come from Turkey.” 

Pamporovo, one of the third biggest ski resorts of Bulgaria who will participate at EMITT tourism exhibition which is one of the fifth biggest tourism exhibitions in the world, has hosted tourism executives from Turkey and Bulgaria. Bulgarian executives who want support from Turkey in order to increase the tourism volume of Bulgaria gathered with executives from Republic of Turkey Ministry of Culture and Tourism, East Mediterranean International Tourism and Travel Exhibition – EMITT, Turkish Hoteliers Federation (TÜROFED) and Turkish Tourism Investors Association (TYD). The meetings also saw the attendance of Sofia Culture and Tourism Counselor Cemal Tekkanat. 
After the EMITT Tourism exhibition committee meeting, committee came together with Smolyan Governor Nedyalko Slavov, Smolyan Mayor Nikolay Melemov and Cepelare Mayor Todor Bozukov and shared their experiences in tourism. In the meeting, the committees decided to make a more effective cooperation.
ITE Turkey Tourism & Travel & Fashion Group Director Hacer Aydın had the following to say: “Bulgaria, one of the gateways of our country to Europe, has began to reap the benefits of its recently increased tourism attack. With the modernization of the transportation network between Bulgaria and Greece, Pamporovo, has become a holiday destination that can be reached in a very short time from both countries.Furthermore Pamporovo also has the position of being the only destination in Europe where both summer and winter tourism can be held due to its geographic location.” Aydın: “East Mediterranean International Tourism and Travel Exhibition – EMITT, which we will organize for the 20th time in 2016, has become a global platform that the leading tourism professionals of the world come together with its participants and visitors that increase every passing year. With the cooperation agreement we signed with Aegean Communication SA from Greece a short while ago, all tourism associations and professionals from Greece who is going through hard times nowadays, will be exclusively hosted in the exhibition for the following four years. With Bansko and Pamporovo being separately participate in the exhibition after the cooperation with Greece and the national pavilion of Bulgaria will increase the tourism volume in the region.”
Türkiye Hoteliers Federation (TÜROFED) CEO Osman Ayık had the following to say: “One of the important ways for Bulgaria to publicize its ever-growing tourism potential on an international circle passes through its attendance to the biggest tourism exhibitions of the world. They made the right decision in attending the East Mediterranean Tourism and Travel Exhibition – EMITT, which will happen for the 20th time in 2016. When we came together with Smolyan Mayor Nikolay Melemov, I talked to him about the importance and future benefits of this occasion. Not only Pamporovo, but all tourism associations on a country basis in Bulgaria should be in attendance. This participation should have huge contributions in a short time.” 
Turkish Tourism Investors Association Board Member Prof. Dr. İbrahim Birkan had the following to say: “Bulgaria with its natural beauty and geographic in all four seasons due to its location, shows an increase in its tourist number in every year; however, it cannot reach its full potential which is 750,000 tourists yearly. Pamporovo decided to participate at EMITT Tourism Exhibition, which is one of the fifth biggest tourism exhibitions in the world. In 2016  it is not going  to host tourists from countries in the region only, but it is going to host many other tourists from all over the world and therefore will be a contender in becoming a popular holiday destination. Birkan: “In order for the tourism volume between Turkey and Bulgaria to increase, public and private sector representatives should immediately take action. Every year, Turkish tourists travel to Bulgaria; especially for winter tourism. The providing of ease at visas can attract 4 or 5 times more tourists from Turkey.”
