This is such an incredible and vibrant city that exudes a lifestyle. We selected the Lazzoni Hotel as we felt it was very important, for our first event in Turkiye, that we partnered with a Turkish brand and they did not disappoint. The team at the Lazzoni Hotel is very well-versed in the events sector and their expertise further assured a very successful night. This is a testament to the high level of Turkish Hospitality. I wish to thank Mr. Gurhan Sayar, GM of Lazzoni Hotel, and his team for their efficiency and professionalism. We look forward to many more years in Turkiye!”
