Port managers from 23 ports visited Ege Port Kuşadası as part of the 5th PDC (Professional Development Course) offered by MedCruise, Association of the Mediterranean Cruise Ports. Aziz Güngör, the General Manager of Ege Port, welcomed European cruise port managers mainly from Spain, Italy, Portugal, Malta, Greece and France. Aziz Güngör, who showed the port facilities to the European port managers, including the port authorities, informed the guests about the successful operation model of the port.
Aziz Güngör, the General Manager of Ege Port commented “As the first cruise port operation of Global Ports Holding, the world’s largest cruise port operator, Ege Port has become a school of port management; today with its successful management model forms an example and inspiration for many port operations in the Mediterranean. As part of the 5th PDC (Professional Development Course) organized by MedCruise, Association of Mediterranean Cruise Ports, we have carried out an education and inspection session with very valuable managers who have come from different ports of the Mediterranean who want to see and examine the successful management model that Ege Port Kusadasi has created. Even with the ongoing hardship that the cruise tourism sector is going through, it is our pleasure to be a source of inspiration with our successful business model as Kusadasi Port.”
The European Port Managers, who have exchanged information and completed their examinations for half a day, have expressed their appreciation to Ege Port Kuşadası and that they will apply the experiences they have acquired to their own ports. The visitors continued to the next destination after receiving a small souvenir gift from Kuşadası.
