Istanbul, Turkey is the next city to steal the City Spotlight. This year’s 4sqDay even will be at Istiklal Avenue, in the district of Asmalımescit. The street is small and narrow, forcing people to interact with each other. It’s a very informal place!

The city leaders have acquired two different specials from the venue:

  • The first 50 people that check in after 7pm get free vodka shots.
  • All people that check in after 7pm get 30% off their all drinks.

They are using a large projector and ScreenScape to project live check ins during the event. When someone checks in, it will be displayed for everyone to see who is at the venue. Maybe they’ll have everyone shout when someone new checks in. In terms of promotion for the event, the team has  made posters, banner and pins. The pins will have the city logo on it. The posters and banner will be foursquare bees, crown, logo etc. The teams art director will design these things, just like as our new logo. They have also been working with YES! People to help promote the event.

They have reached over 115 RSVPs on their Meetup page, and expect more as the day gets closer.
