Tips to attend WorldFood Istanbul

So, if you're looking to prepare for your business trip to WorldFood Istanbul, make sure to check the following tips:

Plan your trip well in advance

Traveling nowadays isn't the easiest thing to do. With all the restrictions, new regulations, constant changes, quarantine rules, health forms, and tests, it can get a bit overwhelming.

Thus, it's absolutely crucial to plan your trip well in advance. Since you already know the date and place of the WorldFood Istanbul, you can do your research and arrange everything prior to leaving.

Make sure to get insurance for your trip since traveling abroad is connected with a lot of uncertainty in the ongoing pandemic.

Use an e-Visa system

Choose your lodging depending on both pricing and convenience

This may sound obvious, but choosing appropriate accommodation for a price you can currently handle is crucial. Luckily, accommodation in Turkey is not that expensive.

You can be sure to find some comfortable, clean, and cheap hotel when in Istanbul.

Make a schedule or itinerary

Once you have dealt with the obligatory safety precautions, booking your flights, accommodation, doing your research on the latest Covid restrictions, and getting your e-Visa, it's time to plan your stay.

Business trips may be a little bit more complicated when planning. Creating a perfect schedule for the planned business trip is not the easiest of tasks. Thus, it's best done in advance.

First, pin down the most important events in your schedule, i.e., the flights, the check-in at the hotel, the actual WorldFood Istanbul events planned. Then, once you know what are the staple elements in your itinerary, you can plan other activities in between.

Make sure to add the time of commuting in between events and activities, as well as make some time to eat.

Investigate your destination

If your itinerary allows it, you can also take some time to explore Istanbul while already there! Research the city beforehand and see if any of the available attractions catch your attention.

You should also try some of the traditional Turkish foods, as well as their incredible tea and coffee!

Make a packing list

Forgetting important items while on your business trips may cause some trouble. That is when creating a packing list beforehand comes in handy. That way you can be sure that you're not missing anything.

Check the list before closing your luggage and travel prepared! You do not want to miss your charger or your schedule. Make your business trip as smooth as possible and focus on the actual goal of the trip – making new connections!
