Istanbul and Izmir Hotel Opportunities
We have negotiated on your behalf with possible hotels in order to obtain reduced accommodation rates. All communication, reservation, payment etc. operations with the specified hotels are the responsibility of the teams themselves.
We recommend finding a hotel near the M2 Yenikapi-Haciosman Metro line. There are few hotels within walking distance of the venue, but the metro is about a 15 minute walk from the venue, and can ease access to the site.
Due to other events in İzmir on the same dates, nearby hotels are full or have increased prices. We recommend finding a hotel along the İzmir İzban Train line. The city of İzmir will be arranging shuttle services from predetermined locations to the venue. We will add further details to this page as we receive them.
Public transportation lines are very effective in both İzmir and İstanbul. Especially in İstanbul, in the area the event is being held, metro is usually faster than road-vehicles (busses, cars, etc.)
The most important feature is the large-capacity hall with the best sound acoustics in Turkey. The capacity of the arena varies from 4,500 to 6,500, depending on the events. Arena is next to UNIQ Shopping Center and offers many eating/drinking/market opportunities. It can be reached with a 15-minute walk from the ITU-Ayazağa M2 (Yenikapı-Hacıosman) Metro station. Many IETT buses pass in front of it. You can click here for public transport details.
Fuar İzmir is located in Gaziemir, İzmir. It is the largest convention center in İzmir. The convention center is 10 minutes from Adnan Menderes Airport and 15 minutes from the city center.
The FIRST Robotics Competition event will take place in Hall D.
