Alaeddin Babaoglu, who has signed on more than 100 successful international projects within several international associations in hotel investment businesses, said, "Investments made in the hotel investory area in Turkey are mostly purposed on tourism sector. There is a huge lack in business hotel investory. Hotel investments are obviously inadequate, especially on the zones except big cities. While we were establishing Amplio, we've aimed to grow by making hotel investments all the way through to the west and east sides of Turkey. Our primary aim is to get big international chains, which has become important brands, over to Turkey. In this context, we've signed our first strategic agreement last year, with Hilton Hotels Corporatin, USA to bring Hilton Garden Inn Hotels to Turkey. Right along with Hilton, we're recieving several collaboration offerings by important international brands acting on business hotel investory in Turkey. Our negotiations keep going on this subject. In later periods, we're going to sign new agreements by evaluating these various offers and proposals. Our aim is to bring quality and set the sector in motion by making a great many of global brands to meet Turkey market."
