Meetings and exhibitions in Istanbul have resumed under strict hygiene rules and precautions.

CNR Beauty & Wellness Show became the first international exhibition to open in İstanbul after a six-month break. Implementing health and safety regulations including social distancing, hygiene, and obligatory face masks, the Beauty & Wellness Show hosted more than 20,000 professionals over three days in September.

Since the beginning of the 2020 summer season, Turkey’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism has been supervising the implementation of the “Safe Tourism Certification Program.” This program defines and advises an extensive series of measures for transportation and accommodation for all visitors to Turkey. The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey implements a similar safety program for all exhibitions and trade shows. These two programs allow visitors to fly, stay and participate in business events in Turkey with the most advanced health safety standards.
