The event, organized by Atölye Grup, was a collaboration between the Turkish Education Foundation in the UK, the Galatasaray Education Foundation, and the Bogazici University Alumni Association. The event was attended by London's Ambassador Osman Koray Ertaş, former British Ambassador to Ankara Peter Westmacott, Turkish Consul General in London Bekir Utku Atahan, and numerous other guests.

Ambassador Ertaş, in his opening speech, stated, "The hearts of Turks all around the world beat for a stronger Türkiye in its second century. The Republic of Türkiye swiftly emerged as a modern state shortly after its foundation. Fortunately, Atatürk's legacy still illuminates the future. We are all proud to be part of the generation of the Republic." Ertaş added that the Turkish community worldwide will continue to work together for the further development and success of Türkiye.


Former British Ambassador to Ankara, Peter Westmacott, delivered a speech in Turkish during the event. Emphasizing the significance of Türkiye as a partner for the UK, Westmacott remarked, "The Republic of Türkiye has had a fantastic first century. Hopefully, the second century will be even better."
