ICMA Gala Party at the Sait Halim Pasa Mansion
Let’s celebrate the success of ICMA’s first conference in Istanbul at the incredible, historic Sait Halim Pasa Mansion. Considering everything in Istanbul has significant history, don’t expect anything different from this mansion. Undergoing over a century of dramatic history starting with a Princes son, named Sait Halim Pasa, inheriting the mansion. Sait Halim Pasa, received an extensive education, served within his government and even received special privileges from the Sultan. Sadly though, his life was cut short by his assassination in 1921. Upon his passing, the mansion was passed on to many different owners, one being the Prime Ministry in which the mansion was used as the family’s summer home. All was well with the mansion and the owners until the year 1995 when the mansion was struck by a fire requiring the entire mansion to be restored. By 2002 the building was completed in its original architectural style and its prestigious presence continues to live on through the test of time.
Join us in experiencing a grand night in a stunning building with views of the Bosphorus River as we begin the evening with drinks, a three course dinner and then ending the night dancing the night away. Please note there is a nominal fee of €130 for gala party tickets.
