“The WTN TIME2023 gives an opportunity for key travel professionals to visit Bali, so they can understand better what is so special about selling holidays and meetings in Bali and other parts of Indonesia.

“Our goal at Turkish Airlines is to work with World Tourism Network and its TIME 2023 Executive Summit to encourage industry members to work together to promote inbound and outbound travel within its 132 member countries.”

Juergen Steinmetz, the global Chairman and co-founder of World Tourism Network said:

“We’re proud to welcome Turkish Airlines as an essential partner for our first global Executive Summit in Bali. I had the pleasure of flying Turkish many times over the years, and there is nothing so diverse, unique, and better in our global skies these days. I followed Turkish Airlines from 1978 when I started in the travel and tourism industry until now. This airline is a success story like no other in global aviation. It made our world smaller, and Turkey is now known to everyone as one of the most exciting places to visit and do business.

“Thank you for stepping up for our Small and Medium Size Businesses and this new global organization.”
