The IFES World Summit started with successful committee meetings, new contacts and greeting friends from all over the globe; addressing the delegates. AGM was not as boring as most delegates expected it – there where a lot of new things coming up: IFES starts to change it face and become more active throughout the year. Then a magical cruise on the Bosphorus and a realization that the World Summit starts tomorrow.
By now lot of delegates considered: I am Turk. The city feels like home and an everybody is extremely satisfied with choosing this spot. Two Key notes on the Turkish market, Workshops on economic developments around the globe and uncountable amount of B2B meetings made Day 1 of the congress worth participating. After an one hour bus ride to the President’s gala took place at the foot of one of the Bhosporus bridges.
It was another great evening of food, friendships, the air of the Bosphorus and generous amounts of Raki.
