IALC 2015 Vienna Central European Workshop

Feedback from the IALC Turkey roadshow confirms the importance of personal relationships in language travel

Istanbul 26 October 2015 | Ankara 28 October 2015

In October 2015, 21 IALC accredited language schools travelled to two key cities in Turkey to meet local study travel agents.

IALC welcomed 34 agents at the Hotel Point Taksim in Istanbul, and 21 agents at the Hilton in Ankara, for a full day of networking and business meetings. The IALC Turkey Roadshow enabled agents to meet directly with representatives at IALC schools, without the inconvenience of international travel.

Agents were able to select from a wide range of accredited language programmes, meeting decision makers representing 15 year round language centres in England and Scotland, 3 in Ireland as well as schools in New Zealand, Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Portugal.

"Through our 2015 research* we found that agents value the easy access to decision makers and personal service offered by IALC schools,"explains IALC Marketing Manager, Hollie Coffey who is already receiving excellent feedback from the schools as well as the agents who attended."The opportunity to have face to face meetings with owners and directors from our schools helps to build the strong working relationships and trust that is so important in our industry."
