Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is organizing its first-ever festival in London.
The “Festival of North Cyprus” will take place between the dates of 5-6 May 2017 at “The Business Design Centre” located in Islington, North London. The tourism industry, in particular, has shown great interest in the festival.
Zorlu Cezaroğlu, the director of North Cyprus UK Ltd., the company organizing the event, has said that “with this fair, we will have a chance to introduce and promote not only our tourism industry but all the other sectors of our country as well”.
Cezaroğlu has stated that they have rented a very prestigious and well-known fair centre and are currently planning an event that would successfully represent and introduce our country to the world.
Cezaroğlu informed the newspaper KIBRIS that they are cooperating with the TRNC Ministry of Tourism and Environment for this initiative and such an organization is the first of its kind.
“We are ready to promote everything. We will have cultural food products on one side and promote our real estate properties on the other. We will have representatives from our banks, our businesses, our private hospitals, and our universities” said Cezaroğlu.
Cezaroğlu stated that this event will put Northern Cyprus on the world map and ensure that our country’s tourism sector develops steadily and rapidly. He said that the aim is to make Northern Cyprus a tourist destination, promote and market all its diverse sectors, and emphasize its natural, historical and cultural significance. He explained that there will be hotels, tour operators and different groups from the tourism sector in Northern Cyprus present at the festival. He then continued as follows:
“We hope that this event will greatly benefit the economy of Northern Cyprus and at the same time develop a spirit of solidarity amongst Turkish Cypriots living in London.
The festival will take place in “The Business Design Centre” located in Islington, which is in an exclusive area close to North, South, East and West London. The Business Design Centre, which hosts festivals and fairs of various countries of the world, will now be hosting Turkish Cypriots. The festival will provide Turkish Cypriots with the opportunity to share and promote their beautiful island and its values in the metropolitan city of London, where countries from all around the world meet.
The Director of North Cyprus UK, Zorlu Cezaroğlu, concluded his words by saying, “We hope to meet you at our festival, which will act as a vital bridge to Northern Cyprus, and provide us with an opportunity to share with you our values and traditions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the TRNC Ministry of Tourism and Environment for their contribution in making this festival a reality”.
