More than 20 companies, including Turkish Airlines, were present at IFTM Top Resa for the promotion of Turkey, emphasising in particular the city of Troy – now Hisarlik – in Cannakale province. This name is one of the most evocative of Turkey, conjuring images of a prestigious city whose soldiers were decimated due to the trick of Greek assailants hidden within a huge wooden horse.
For four decades, Allianz Travel – formerly known as Mondial Assistance – has accompanied each edition of IFTM Top Resa. “We have been here for 40 years now because IFTM Top Resa allows us to reach the whole travel chain in France – both distributors and producers – in a single place,” explains Céline Chopin, Sales Director at Allianz Partners France.
