Event tourism, especially special events and boutique meetings, has an increasing attractiveness in terms of tourism. It may also contribute to the development of the Princes’ Islands by decreasing the seasonality problem of the destination and increasing the variability of the tourism products. The purpose of this study is to analyze the current situation and the potential of the Princes’ Islands as a destination for special events and boutique meetings. The current situation and potential was taken into consideration in relation to the conceptual model that includes available facilities and investments, attractions, heritage sites and activities, protective measures, support and collaboration, cost of destination and perceived potential impacts.

The studyis descriptive, non-contrived and a field study. Judgmental and snowball sampling were used and semi-structured interviews to hotels which have meeting room facilities, event organization companies, NGOs, the Municipality of the Princes’ Islands, and the Anadolu Club were conducted.

The findings show that the Islands have a potential for special events and boutique meeting. However, the Islands need to improve their facilities and investment, establish a professional relationship and coordination between different stakeholders, including the Metropolitan Municipality, local authorities, organization firms and hotels, in order to create and increase alternative activities and develop the Princes’ Islands as a destination for special events and boutique meetings.
