Dedeman Konya Hotel Sales and Marketing Manager Ahmet Emin Ok told Anadolu Agency (AA) that the guests who stay in Konya on the weekend cannot come to Mevlana's Vuslat Anniversary International Commemoration Ceremonies due to the intensity, they follow the events through the press and at the first opportunity.
