Konya is one of the oldest settlements in the world and its history goes back as far as the year 6800 BC. From pre-history to modern times, peoples from various nations have settled in and urbanized this region, bringing with them their own culture, art folklore, customs, and traditions. Attendees will have the chance to partake in a planned regional tour included in the registration fee. This is a great organization and a great venue to develop new contacts and friendships.
