The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) has partnered with the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) to host the inaugural PATA & GBTA APAC Travel Summit at Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) in Bangkok from 8 to 9 December 2022.
With the theme “Defining a Responsible, Sustainable Future for Business, Tourism and MICE”, the two-day tradeshow and conference will highlight the challenges and solutions for CO2 emissions, destination sustainability options, and procurement-oriented approaches in the context of the Asia-Pacific region’s pandemic recovery.
MICE and corporate travel decision-makers from the world’s largest travel companies and travel management companies are expected to attend, as are regional and global travel suppliers including top airlines, hotel and ground/car rental brands.
PATA CEO Liz Ortiguera said: “At PATA, we support the industry recovery, pursuit of emerging travel opportunities and sustainable travel practices for the region. Therefore, I invite all of our members, partners and industry colleagues to join us and engage in this travel forum to reconnect, get informed and collaborate.”
“The path to recovery for the global travel industry continues for both tourism and business travel. However, there’s also the opportunity and need to create a better, more sustainable way forward to serve the industry and the planet as well,” said Suzanne Neufang, CEO, GBTA.
