Emel Elik Bezaroğlu, Chairman of the Board of Sales and Marketing at Elite World Hotels & Resorts, emphasized the hidden potential of Africa in tourism, stating, "We are excited to bring our first hotel abroad to life. Within the framework of our growth targets, there are not only neighboring geographies but also distant geographies with growth potential in tourism. Operating the Elite World Grand Yamoussoukro with a franchise model in the jewel of Africa, the Ivory Coast, exemplifies the first instance of these goals."

Orkun Petekçi, CEO of Elite World Hotels & Resorts, remarked, "The year 2024 represents a significant milestone in our nearly 50 years of accommodation experience. This hotel, which will be our first establishment abroad as Elite World, will be an example of bringing our world-standard service in the accommodation sector to another continent. Considering the tourism potential of the region, we are also interested in hotel projects in different cities. In addition to our international expansion, countries such as Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy are also among our targets. With ongoing negotiations both domestically and internationally, we are steadily progressing towards our goal of reaching 50 hotels by 2030."
