The delegation visited Didim Municipality council member and DİTAB President Sevinç Karatas and Didim Chamber of Commerce Strategy Development Commission President Hikmet Atilla participated in an evaluation meeting about the festival.

Atabay said: “We are constantly working for the festival and it will be held this year for the 2nd time. We remain Turkey’s first city to host Turkey’s only Vegan Friendly Festival.”

“We are expecting many participants from abroad this year. We know that the festival is going to be a festival that is demanded more every year than before, and we continue our work in that direction.”
