Bilkent THM hosts Tourism Week events
In connection with national Tourism Week, which takes place April 15-22 every year, Bilkent THM hosts a number of events in collaboration with various other universities in Ankara.
In addition to the lectures and conferences that are held throughout the week, a meeting of representatives from both the public and private spheres with an interest in or authority over the tourism sector traditionally takes place at the Bilkent THM restaurant, Le Piment Rouge. In previous years, those in attendance have included Ankara Deputy Governor Fatih Ahmet Kurt, Ankara Provincial Director of Culture and Tourism Doğan Acar, Ministry of Culture and Tourism General Director of Promotion İrfan Önal, and officials, executives, and managers from TÜRSAB, ATİD, Skal Turkey, the Ankara Skal Foundation, ANTOD, Sheraton, and ANRO. This special event brings industry representatives and educators together in an informal setting to network and discuss issues in the tourism industry.
