Let's meet where east meets west
Dear SPUS Family,
Since our first SPUS meeting we have been looking forward to this moment. We are very excited to be hosting you in Istanbul in 2023!
Once the French author Alphonse de Lamartine famously suggested, “If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.”
So, we expect you will like her as much as we do.
Here we will share with you all the activities we plan. We will be also sending you e-mails to inform you about the changes, but you are always welcome to reach us through our personal contacts.
Look forward to meet with all of you in Istanbul!

Istanbul is the biggest and the most populated city of Turkiye and is very easy to reach to by air. There are two international airports in Istanbul: New Istanbul airport on the European side of the city and Sabiha Gokcen Airport on the Asian side. The construction of the new international airport is finished and started to operate by the end of 2018, being the biggest airport in whole Europe.
In October days are usually warm and pleasant with chilly evenings, with a chance of rain. You should pack light and cool clothing.
Avg. 75°F / 63°F (24°C / 17°C)
There are many videos prepared by the Turkish Minister of Culture-this is just one of them
