Alanya Touristic Hoteliers Association (ALTID) President Burhan Sili shared positive expectations for the upcoming 2024 tourism season during a panel organized by the Hotel Housekeeping Training and Decoration Association (HOTED).
The 34th Hotel Equipment – International Accommodation and Hospitality Equipment Specialization Fair took place from January 16 to 19 this year. Within the fair, HOTED organized two panels under the title ‘Main Issues of the Sector.’ Responding to questions during the panel and discussing season expectations, President Sili expressed optimism about a successful 2024 tourism season based on current data.
President Sili stated, “Despite the ups and downs since 2015 for various reasons, we managed to recover as of 2023. We anticipate a more positive year in 2024 for our country and the region in general. Last year, we reached positive levels in per capita income in Turkey and Antalya, even breaking records. For Alanya specifically, I can say that 2023 will be around 20% better than the previous year. Impressions from reservations at our facilities and discussions abroad support this view. Additionally, on a national level, there is an ongoing process initiated with the motto ‘Tourism in 81 Provinces,’ thanks to the efforts of both the Turkey Tourism Promotion and Development Agency (TGA) and our Ministry of Culture and Tourism to diversify products and increase source markets. It seems that, barring any unforeseen issues, a promising year awaits us in tourism throughout Turkey.”
