: Macao is to host 40th edition of the PATA Travel Mart, Asia-Pacific’s premier travel trade show from September 13 to 15, 2017. To be be held at The Venetian Macao, the Mart will offer an exciting business program as well as give the delegates a chance to know Macao through a program of pre- and post- event tours.
PATA Travel Mart enables travel and tourism organisations to access decision makers, contract new business, cement existing partnerships and expand their networks in the Asia-Pacific region, considered one of the most dynamic travel marketplaces in the world. In addition to business sessions, networking and social events, forums and seminars will cover subjects from Redefining the Travel Experience to The Most Effective Influencer Marketing Strategies. The PATA Gold Awards Ceremony will celebrate 28 organisations and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the industry.
Delegates can choose between two complimentary half-day tours before PATA Travel Mart begins. “Macao Heritage” will showcase the stunning architecture and streetscapes within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Historic Centre of Macao, including the iconic Ruins of St. Paul’s (Macao’s most famous landmark), the ancient A-Ma Temple and Senado Square, the city’s urban centre.
