There's a big surprise in store if you are attending the 2014 GBTA convention in Los Angeles, running July 26-30.

Turkish Airlines, recently voted Europe’s Best Airline for the fourth year in a row, is bringing its world-famous “Kobe vs. Messi: The Selfie Shootout” campaign to the GBTA. Also, there will be a special appearance by the airline’s global ambassador, Kobe Bryant.

The "Kobe vs. Messi" campaign was one the advertising bright spots of 2013 and it helped show Turkish Airline's commitment in flying to 257 destinations, in 107 countries, more than any other airline, its in-flight Flying Chefs, award-winning and delicious cuisine, passenger comfort and friendly service.

Now, for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Turkish is giving fifteen lucky attendees the chance to meet and take their very own selfie with Kobe Bryant. Winners will receive a unique commemorative framed print of their selfie with the NBA star.

After the GBTA Convention, all attendees—selfie takers and all others will have another opportunity to win an autographed Kobe Bryant headshot by visiting and submitting their business cards at the Turkish Airlines booth (#2825).

What an opportunity.
