Directors of the Saudi, Russian and United Arab Emirates' sovereign wealth funds took part in the opening panel.
Turkish investigators, however, have steadily leaked evidence to the media that allegedly proves the journalist was tortured, murdered and his body dismembered within the consulate building.
The Turkish president, who had said he would reveal "the naked truth" about Khashoggi's murder fell short of that with a speech was not as detailed and as full of new facts/evidence as analysts had expected.
Nearly three weeks after his death, the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is now confirmed, but what remains a mystery is exactly how it happened and who was the mastermind behind the brutal plan.
"Neither the Vienna Convention nor other worldwide laws allow the investigation into such a brutal murder to be cloaked behind the shield of diplomatic immunity", the president said.
On Monday, Turkish media reported that a auto was found in the Sultangazi district of Istanbul, which had been there for several days and was not inspected during the search of the entire Saudi consulate's motor transport over the Khashoggi case.
"Our thoughts are with the family of Jamal Khashoggi, for whom they must have been particularly distressing".
However, Erdogan did not produce the secret audio recordings that some officials have said provide proof of how Khashoggi was killed. He's seen as a person who can keep things under check.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan delivered a sharp rebuttal of Saudi Arabia's widely criticised account that the writer for The Washington Post died accidentally in a brawl, saying Saudi officials had planned the killing for days.

The statement issued via the State-run press agency on Sunday also warned the kingdom would respond to any steps taken against it. President Donald Trump is expected to call King Salman soon as questions mount about the disappearance of the Saudi journalist.
"To blame such an incident on a handful of security and intelligence members would not satisfy us or the global community", Erdogan said in a speech to ruling party lawmakers in parliament.
A number of Saudi nationals have since been arrested, while deputy intelligence chief Ahmad al-Assiri and Saud al-Qahtani, a senior aide to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, have been dismissed, state TV reported.
"Why was it that so many contradictory statements were made about the alleged murder?"
"They made the mistake when they killed Jamal Khashoggi in the consulate and they tried to cover up for it", he said.
For weeks, the Saudi government denied that it killed Khashoggi and said he walked out of the consulate after his October 2 visit.
The Saudis say Asiri issued what's known as a general intelligence presidency (GIP) internal task order, based on a previous general directive to negotiate with dissidents overseas and bring them back to Saudi Arabia.
He also confirmed that a body double for Khashoggi had been deployed by Saudi Arabia. "We need answers", he said.
On the day of Khashoggi's disappearance, 15 other Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and visited the consulate while he was still inside, according to Turkish police sources.
Preparations were also under way as those groups were en route to Turkey, Erdogan said, describing how a auto left the consulate for an "exploration mission" to the Belgrad Forest on the outskirts of Istanbul.
