Eresin: Investments and Perspective

TÜROB President Müberra Eresin, whose opinions were included in the research, pointed out that the accommodation sector in Turkey has always been attractive for local and foreign investors. Eresin said, “Despite everything, the sector has maintained and continues to maintain its attraction. In addition to the increase in investments, the increase in the number of hotels in domestic and foreign hotel chains is also an indication of this situation. “Türkiye, especially Istanbul, is still among the most attractive cities in the world for tourism investments,” he said.

Native Chains and Support

Pointing out that local hotel chains should be supported to expand abroad, Eresin expressed the following views: “The distinction between business types is very confusing, but I would especially like to point out that in all these business types, the investors are mostly Turkish companies. Apart from investors who operate their hotel under their own brand, some investors, before opening the hotel, acquire the naming rights of a local or foreign chain and operate the hotel under that foreign name, or make a contract to have their business run entirely by a local or foreign brand. What we are particularly trying to underline is that Turkish companies making these hotel investments should be supported domestically and especially abroad, and the opportunity to carry their success abroad should be created. Currently, the conditions for the accommodation sector to benefit from Turquality are difficult. We have very successful local hotel chains. “We should provide more support and highlight local brands, especially so that they can realize their projects abroad.”
