    Guide to hosting meeting events in Istanbul

    Hello there, event planners. We hear that you’re thinking of hosting a meeting in Istanbul and we’re here to tell you that’s a great choice (and help you out, of course!)

    You probably already know this, but Istanbul is one of the top cities to host a meeting. Not only is it an established business hub, but it’s also shown incredible promise in the crypto and blockchain market as well.

    So now that you know there’s an incredible audience for your meeting in Istanbul, let’s go ahead and start planning it. We’ve put together this handy guide to make it super successful.  

    Read on to learn more about where to find the best meeting rooms in Istanbul, catering tips, how to get around the city, after-work entertainment, and more.

    What Kind of Meeting Rooms Does Istanbul Have?

    We love that when it comes to meeting rooms in Istanbul, there’s so much to choose from! The city has everything from conventional meeting rooms in business hotels to more opulent choices that reflect Istanbul’s rich cultural heritage.

    We’re not joking when we say that sometimes, meeting rooms in Istanbul can be extravagant. There are 19th-century palaces that have been refurbished into luxurious business hotels, meeting rooms with stunning architecture, and even meeting rooms with incredible views of the Bosphorus Sea.

    And if it’s not luxury you’re after, the city also has some gorgeous meeting rooms in the historic parts of the city that pay homage to its Islamic roots.

    There’s so much to choose from here, and we’re pretty sure whatever type of meeting room you have in mind, you’ll find it in Istanbul.

    The Best Areas to Find Top Meeting Rooms in Istanbul

    There’s something distinct about each neighbourhood in Istanbul. That’s why you can be picky about the area for your meeting in Istanbul.

    For example, if you’re looking to host a meeting for a slightly more upscale crowd, we recommend you check out Nişantaşı. Over here, you’ll find some of the city’s fanciest hotels and most luxurious meeting rooms.

    We think you’ll also like that Nişantaşı also has several options for after-event activities, such as shopping at one of the area’s many haute couture boutiques or strolling through the gorgeous Maçka Park. And if you’d like to host a cocktail reception or dinner after your meeting, you’ll be pleased to know this area is also home to some of the city’s most elegant restaurants.

    If you prefer culture over luxury, you’ll want to host your meeting in Sultanahmet, where your guests will get a chance to experience a taste of the city’s rich history.

    After all, Sultanahmet is where you’ll find some of Istanbul’s most iconic locations. You might even be able to host your meeting in a venue overlooking the gorgeous views of Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque.

    • Pro-tip: arrange a sightseeing tour for your guests after your meeting!

    Now, let’s move from the historic to the hip. If you’re a start-up or hosting a meeting for a young crowd, the trendy neighbourhood of Kadıkӧy is perfect. Here you can host your meeting at a venue overlooking the sea or even host a smaller get-together at one of the many cool bars, coffee shops, and restaurants scattered about the area.

    Last but not least, we can’t forget Karakoy. This neighbourhood was once a row of shipping warehouses and camping shops. Since then, it has transformed into one of the city’s most cultured neighbourhoods.

    If Sultanahmet is culture with history, Karakoy is culture with a modern backdrop. Over here, you’ll find some of the coolest meeting rooms in Istanbul, including lovely art galleries with meeting rooms and stylish boutiques.

    Catering for Meeting Rooms in Istanbul

    Now let’s get to one of the most fun parts about hosting a meeting in Istanbul - the food. There’s a lot to eat in Istanbul, with loads of potential caterers who can make your meeting a gastronomical delight.

    Some event venues in Istanbul will have in-house catering at an extra cost. But in case your venue doesn’t, don’t worry.  We can recommend an event caterer specifically for your taste and needs.

    And if you’d like to have something a little more fun, pay homage to the street food culture in Istanbul by getting Our Top 5 Food Trucks in Istanbul to cater for your meeting.

    This handy guide isn’t only about the serious stuff. We do want you to have some fun while you’re hosting your meeting in Istanbul.

    There’s plenty to do in the city whether you like historical sites or vibrant nightlife. However, we definitely believe that a team that plays together stays together so we’d recommend checking our 6 Unique Team Building Activities in Istanbul for some cool ideas on unwinding with the team.
