The CBDC Conference 2023 will be held in Istanbul, Turkey.
Picturesquely located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia on the Bosphorus, Istanbul is Turkey’s largest city and as such is a cultural, economic and financial center.
With its approximately 2700-year history, Istanbul combines old and new in a unique way. Old palaces stand next to new, modern high-rises with glittering facades. Due to their historical relevance, parts of the old city have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Besides visitors interested in history, shopping afficionados will also get their money's worth. One of the largest shopping malls in Turkey is located near the hotel.
