Yalcin will assume the role of Global DMC Partners managing director, Eurasia to expand Global DMC Partners’ international sales efforts and client support. With an office based in Istanbul, the team will focus on Eurasian and African markets.

Yalcin has been involved in travel trade and international meetings for more than 30 years as a full-service DMC, and he will continue his current DMC operations alongside this new position.

Commenting on the new office, Global DMC Partners president, Catherine Chaulet, said: "After working with Mustafa and his team for many years, I am thrilled to establish the Global DMC Partners Eurasia sales office.

"I am extremely confident that they will be instrumental in strengthening Global DMC Partners’ international presence and brand awareness. They are experts in the DMC industry with extensive knowledge of these key markets and client needs."

Yalcin added: "Our home base, Turkey, is where ‘east meets west’ which perfectly aligns with Global DMC Partners’ mission to represent the largest network of the best DMCs all over the world."  

"I have had the privilege of working with most of our DMC Partners for more than two decades, bearing witness to their true expertise, so it is a great honor for me to introduce these leading DMCs to a vast new client base."

"This marks another great milestone for Global DMC Partners," says Chaulet. "Along with our sales offices in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany, we are ecstatic to officially add Turkey to that list."
