Venue & Accomodation



Flanked by beach resort neighbours, Izmir stands out as a unique destination. The region is rich in history, with a flourishing city on the coast providing cultural gems and traditional cuisine. Explore cities founded by Alexander the Great, sail out from the famous marina or dine on octopus in a seafront restaurant. All the while, the white and gold Aegean beaches wait nearby.

The Izmir area, which curves along the west coast of Turkey, is starting to make its mark on the country. Bring your partner and spend a few days after the summit soaking in everything Izmir has to offer! The beaches alone make it worth the visit – they range from vacant stretches of sand, hugged by parkland, to windsuyrfing hubs packed with cafes and volleyball courts.

The Summit will be taking place at the Hilton Hotel in Izmir, Turkey.

Izmir town is Turkey’s third-largest city known as the beautiful waterfront thanks to its sweeping harbour, stylish waterfront eateries and palm lined pier. The pier was actually deigned by Monsieur Eiffel, the behind the Paris famous iron lady.
