8 Superstars testimonials for MEP Destination Business Solutions

A true partner

I've worked with MEP for many years and they never fail to impress. They take the time to understand your brief, your client and the requirements and create programmes that hit the mark every time. Operationally they are hugely impressive with their experience and network of partners really shining through when running groups in Istanbul, Cappadocia and the Turkish Riviera.
I wouldn't hesitate to, and often do, recommend MEP to anyone looking for event services in Turkey.

Connected, experienced and fun to work with

Over the many years that I have worked with Birgul and the MEP team, I have always been impressed by their creativity, can-do attitude and hospitality. They are one of the best connected DMCs you will ever encounter (I guess being around a long time has to have its benefits ;-); they make things happen and they do it with humanity, a smile and good grace. For Turkey in particular, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Top of the bunch

I have had the extreme pleasure to know and work with Birgul and her team since the mid 1990's - over 30 years of sterling service and unwavering professionalism. Nothing has ever been too small or too much trouble for them to be involved, they never say no, they always have solutions, they are always at hand. They have continually strived for perfection and to over-deliver - in a country that has sadly had more than it's fair share of turmoil at times. Likewise they continually move forward, look ahead and eagerly share their creativity and ideas. They are an incredible asset to the MICE industry not just in Turkey but around the globe - I wish there were more DMC's that had the same ethics and ethos.

The Gold Standard of DMCs

I have worked with MEP since 1995, for me they are the Gold Standard of DMCs. A true partner; personable; keen to strive to understand then not just meet but surpass expectations.

They demonstrate always, without fail, that your business is valuable to them, it is NEVER taken for granted and because of that they strive to employ personnel with the same ethos and culture and operational excellence exacting standards.

They are never stagnant, always innovating, but not just for the sake of doing so.

If I had free rein to choose a country to work in I would choose Turkey, not just because of the amazing choice of hotels, restaurants, venues, history and architecture but first and foremost, because I get to work with friends who I know will never let me down and are always one step ahead with a solution. It’s always a pleasure to partner with them.

A brilliant ground partner in a beautiful country

I have had the pleasure of working with MEP for many years and have always valued their expertise, creativity and honest advice when looking to place business in Turkey. The team is amazing, always happy to help even with the most difficult requests and go the extra mile during the planning and on delivery stage to make your event a success every time. Will never consider using an alternative partner in this region, they are simply the best!

A joy to work with!

I have had the pleasure of working with Asli, Birgul & the MEP team over the past 2 + years on a very complex event. Throughout this time they have been attentive, flexible, helpful and incredibly easy to work with. I have always felt we were in safe hands. They have also been so supportive to us and our client throughout this incredibly strange time we find ourselves in. Throughout this time, MEP's incredible relationships with suppliers and partners has been invaluable. I would recommend MEP to anyone looking for a Destination Management Company in Turkey and I look forward to the next time we will be able to work together again!

The Personal touch

MEP is a fantastic business. Hugely creative, responsive and above all they care and nothing is ever too much trouble. They match the programme to the brand/company and nothing ever feels off the shelf. Love working with them in both Turkey and Azerbaijan. Can wait to get back over to Istanbul, one of my favourite places in the world and so much to offer. But id never go without MEP.

A true partner - professional, creative, honest

I have had the good fortune to work with MEP for almost 30 years. Their ethos is to listen to what you want, create a compelling solution, challenge your thinking, work collaboratively throughout, deliver an amazing experience and exceed your expectations. They do all of this every single time and it is true pleasure to work together. Honest conversations are vital in this industry - what can work, what won't, understanding the reasons - and they are a true partner being an extension of both ourselves at BI Worldwide but also our clients. Without exception every client who has worked with them has commented on their passion, their creativity and their understanding. They just get it. Working with Birgul, Eda and the whole team is a wonderful experience and you can't help be amazed at their pride and hospitality of a wonderful country. Very highly recommended.
