Bridging Cities




Istanbul INN London is a stunning four day showcase of Istanbul’s contemporary culture, art, architecture, literature, food, fashion, film and design.  It is the first of a series of annual events celebrating some of the world’s most compelling and intoxicating foreign cities and will offer visitors the chance to immerse themselves in the city’s culture, discover emerging creative talent and sample authentic food and drink.

Taking place in the lauded beauty of Victoria House in central London’s Bloomsbury Square, the 22,000 sq ft venue will be brimming with Istanbul galleries, design practices, fashion designers and Turkish brands, many of which will be offering visitors the chance to buy products never before available in the UK.


A series of talks will offer visitors the chance to learn more about the brands involved in the event, whilst a café, luxury street food vendors and bars will provide a chance to take a break. An authentic Turkish dining experience will be offered in the meyhane – offering traditional meze (Turkish tapas), as well as Turkish Raki for the bold and inquisitive.


INN will be launching the event with a one-day conference investigating the opportunity for developing trade & relations between the UK and Turkey.
