Turkey, invited as an honorary guest to Strasbourg tourism fair largely due to Turkish Airlines efforts, is delinquent in a response to the invite...
Turkish Airlines Strasbourg office did not even bother to reply to the invitation by the organizers of Strasbourg tourism exhibition, which requested Turkey to be honorary guest. Turkish Airlines office, however has expended $2 thousand to participate in the fair as an ordinary entrant even though it was offered this honorary guest status. Other Turkish travel companies also participating in the event are angered at Turkish Airlines for its insensitivity on the issue.
RUSSIA TAKES THE CHANCE
When Turkish Airlines did not reply to the invitation to be an honorary guest of the tourism event, the honorary guest title was given to Russia. The fair is expected to draw more than 50 thousand visitors in three days which will be attended by over 300 tour operators and travel agencies from France, Germany and Switzerland.
Annually The Strasbourg tourism fair organizers select an honorary nation for their event on an annual basis. This missed opportunity for Turkey could have allowed it the largest stand, not to mention numerous promotional opportunities including television and radio broadcasts highlighting it throughout Europe.
