Union of Mediterranean Touristic Hoteliers and Operators (AKTOB) have been found in 1984 due to the requirement of systematic structure of union in accommodation sector.

The union which started its activities under the name of Antalya Organisation of Touristic Operators (ANTİD) then modified its name to Society of Mediterranean Touristic Hoteliers and Operators (AKTİD) and finally they concluded in the name Union of Mediterranean Touristic Hoteliers and Operators (AKTOB).  The union is working on the principle of meeting national and international institutions and organisations in the sector with service providers centrally and joining them based on the three objectives of quality, modernity and leadership.

AKTOB which took quality as its philosophy since it started its activities is resuming its mission for a period of 30 years.

Our activities within the framework of Antalya Introductory Committee that we formed for the vision of making Antalya a brand and choosing it as the leader destination in global tourism market is in progress based on the same philosophy we have.

AKTOB has 504 members and with more than 145 thousand rooms and 313 thousand beds; it is one of the biggest organised structures in accommodation sector.

Apart from short term objectives where number of members and service will be improved, we are resuming our activities in the direction of; taking more effective roles in public sphere and having structure to shape, lead sectorial events and what is more a structure which has sanctions on the sector.
