The awards luncheon and presentation takes place at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) on Tuesday, September 8, 2015 during the PATA Travel Mart 2015.

 

Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, Director of the Macau Government Tourist Office, said, “The list of PATA Gold Awards 2015 winners unveils once again the very best of Pacific-Asia tourism practices. The excellence and innovation revealed by the works and projects awarded are impressive and can certainly provide inspiration to raise the standards of the tourism industry stakeholders in the region. Macau Government Tourist Office congratulates all winning organisations and individuals for such outstanding achievements and we are honoured to be part of this prestigious PATA initiative for the 20th consecutive year.”

 

Mario Hardy, PATA CEO, added, “On behalf of PATA, I extend our warmest congratulations to all 2015 Grand and Gold Award winners and I also thank all participants. This year we received 269 entries from 83 travel and tourism organisations and individuals – the highest number since 2007. We look forward to celebrating these accomplishments at the PATA Gold Awards Luncheon and Presentation at the PATA Travel Mart in Bangalore, India.”

 

The PATA Grand Awards are presented to outstanding entries in four principal categories: Marketing; Education and Training; Environment; and Heritage & Culture.

 

Taylor’s University, Malaysia will receive the 2015 PATA Grand Award for Education and Training for its ‘Tourism Academy at Community College Langkawi, Malaysia’ project. It is the first Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiated by the Government through the Ministry of Higher Education jointly with Taylor’s University to establish a Tourism Academy in Malaysia. The hotel industry, through this strategic partnership, has committed to support the learning and development of the students and eventually hire graduates at a more competitive remuneration package in recognition of the skills and learning that they attained directly with the hotel partners through the Tourism Academy.

 

This initiative will support the vision of the government to make Langkawi among the top 10 tourism island destination with qualified manpower to support and complement the service sectors.
