OxphorusEvents has been setting up corporate and private events in and around Istanbul since 2009. Our first events were awards ceremonies and professional development workshops for English-teaching institutions in Istanbul, but we quickly moved on to arranging conferences, live press releases, private parties, sight-seeing tours, and weddings.
The majority of our corporate events have taken place in Istanbul, the cultural, historical, and commercial heart of the country. But an increasingly large amount of our work, especially weddings, has concentrated on Turkey’s stunning Mediterranean coastline and lesser-known historical destinations, from weddings in Ancient Greek amphitheaters, to team-building hikes of Mt Ararat in search of Noah’s Ark.
Whatever your budget, size, or theme, Turkey will present you with more options that you had bargained for. But before you invest too much of your time agonizing over which would be best for you and your guests, let us help you pick out some of your best options and put our network and experience to work to make your event everything you hoped for, but at half the price.
Destination wedding, eh? Better make sure it’s a good one and easy to get to, or your guests will either hate you forever or, worse, not show up. Turkey is the destination wedding capital of much of the region, especially for Europeans who can throw their dream wedding at a fraction of what they would pay at home, just a Ryanair flight away. Newlyweds have a dizzying selection of locations and budgets, as well as pre- and post-wedding options.
The combined force of technological development and the Covid-19 pandemic has not changed the fact that business is still personal and best conducted in person. As such, the conference remains the ultimate networking event. With a range of options and budgets in Istanbul, Ankara and beyond, we can help put together your event and customise it for any occasion, field, size, or purpose.
Get the most out of Istanbul’s cullinary scene and nightlife by hosting your guests in a Bosphorus-side historical Ottoman mansion, or at a five-star roof-top tapas bar. Team building hikes, adventures, and historical tours are a great way to get your colleagues to share those formative travel experiences that form stronger bonds than a lifetime spent in the same office.
Tours & Tourism
Turkey has as diverse a culture, geography, and heritage as any country in the world, and has the beaches and UNESCO sites to prove it. Make your event one to remember by taking it on the road, or wrap it up with an unforgettable trip along the Med, a cultural tour of Istanbul, or a customised route through Turkey’s epic East.
Planes, trains, automobiles, group discounts, and a weight off your mind. If your event is taking place in a remote location, or even if it isn’t, we’re on hand to help with anything from local car hire to chartering international flights to save you and your guests time before, during, and after your event.
