PATA set to build new tourism bridges at Skopje conference

Published on : Tuesday, March 7, 2017

PATAThe Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is to bring its successful Global Insights Conference format to Europe as part of the Macedonia Tourism Summit 2017. The PATA Global Insights Conference (PGIC) Europe Edition takes place at the Marriott Hotel in Skopje on Tuesday June 20th with the theme ‘Building Tourism Bridges’.

 

The conference, hosted generously by Tourism Macedonia, is part of a three-day programme that also embraces the International Travel Crisis Management Summit (June 19th) presented by the Jacobs Media Group and Travel Weekly.

 

“Taking the successful PGIC format to Europe is a significant step forward for our Association,” explained PATA CEO Dr. Mario Hardy. “Destinations across Europe are seeking to exploit the exponential growth in outbound travel from many influential source markets in the Asia Pacific region and national tourist organisations are recognising the important and influential role played by PATA in building bridges between destinations and markets on different continents. This conference reinforces the value of PATA membership for Tourism Macedonia in seeking to attract more visitors from markets such as China, Korea (ROK), Japan and Australasia.”

 

The conference programme will include sessions on sustainable development, aviation and tourist industry trends/forecasts with an impressive gathering of international expert presenters and panellists. PATA’s commitment to support Young Tourism Professionals around the world will be covered in the session ‘Bright Ideas – Future Trends’.

 

“We are working with Tourism Macedonia to invite contributions from tourism students in Skopje. Their views, as ‘tomorrow’s tourism leaders’, will be an important component in the conference programme,” added Dr. Hardy.
