Medical Congresses choose Istanbul

Medical congresses takes the first place with over 20% in Istanbul. As being the World’s Top 10 Congress Destination, the city hosted around 130 international congresses with 75.864 delegates in 2014 (ICCA) and over 20% of the congresses were Medical. If we look at by the end of November 2015, the city welcomed over 40.000 delegates and almost 45% of the delegates were part of Medical Congresses. One of the important reason of this success is that the number of school of medicines. Istanbul is home to 17 faculty of medicine in its 53 universities to name a few; Istanbul University and Marmara University as being the most important universities in this field.


The General Manager of Istanbul CVB, Ozgul Ozkan Yavuz adds: ‘The numbers in 2016 seems even higher. Istanbul have already confirmed 47 international congresses for 2016 and figures shows that 40% of the delegates will be part of medical congresses. We are expecting for the figures to be much higher in coming months. We are pleased with the quantity and quality of the medical congresses that we held and will be hosting. Just to name few this year we hosted Association for the Study of the Liver -APASL Meeting with 4.000 delegates, European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation –EBMT with again 4.000 delegates. For the upcoming years, we are excited to be hosting the European Society of Cardiology with approx. 2.000 delegates, WFNS World Congress of Neurosurgery with 8.000 delegates and World Congress of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery –WPCCS with over 3.000 delegates. As Istanbul CVB, we are aiming to have stronger collabrations with local medical assocations and stregthen our position by hosting even more medical congresses in our city’
