TURKEY has been called “the cradle of civilization” and one can discover what this literally means only by traveling in this land of history. The world’s first town, a Neolithic city at Çatalhöyük, dates back to 6500 BC. From the days of Çatalhöyük up to the present time Turkey boasts of a rich culture that through the centuries has left a lasting foot-print on modern civilization.
Being the heir of many centuries of culture makes Turkey a paradise of knowledge and cultural heritage. Hattis, Hittites, Phrygians, Urartians, Lycians, Ionians, Persians, Macedonians, Romans, Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans have all occupied crucial places in the historical background of Turkey and ancient sites and ruins scattered throughout the country give proof to each civilization’s unique distinction. The modern and dynamic Republic of Turkey is established by Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK in 1923 with this great historical inheritence.
Çeşme is located 85 km west of İzmir, the largest metropolitan center in Turkey's Aegean Region. It lies on the extreme western tip of Turkey, opposite to the Greek island of Chios. There is a six-lane highway connecting the two cities. The Çeşme district has two neighboring districts, namely, Karaburun to the north and Urla to the east, both of which are also part of the İzmir Province. The name "Çeşme" means "fountain" and possibly draws reference from the many Ottoman fountains scattered across the city. Çeşme makes a pleasant base for the meeting and, for also exploring the surroundings of the Karaburun peninsula.
The meeting will take place at Ilıca Hotel which is located at the Ilıca  beach. Ilıca is one of Çeşme’s most popular spots with its wide and almost 2-kilometer-long beaches with white sand, offering quality accommodation and thermal facilities. Warm thermal waters in the sea make the Ilıca beach area a giant thermal pool.
According to the Turkish State Meteorological Service, extreme maximum, minimum and average temperatures measured in a long period (°C) in İzmir for the months of September are given as:
