FAQ about Istanbul venues and events
The cencellation policies usually differ depending on the terms and conditions of the venue but it’s safe to say the closer you are to the date of your booking, the less money you’ll get back. In fact, most venues don’t have a refund policy if you cancel less than 48 hours from the date of your booking.
Istanbul has a 99.8% population of Muslims so almost all food you find here will be halal-certified. In fact, it can be tough to find pork or pork-based dishes in Istanbul since the government strictly controls meat and additive products.
Yes, most event venues in Istanbul charge per day so if you’re hosting an event for longer than a day, just let the venue know when you are making your booking.
Typical Turkish cuisine is meat-heavy but with globalisation and changing dietary needs, you’ll find that most venues, restaurants, and caterers will be willing to adapt their menu to suit vegetarian, vegan, or even gluten-free diets. Speak to your caterer beforehand to discuss any particular diet specifications.
