Dec 20, 2020

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is pleased to announce the launch of PATA Marketplace, a digital showroom exclusive for PATA members and an online community for all travel industry stakeholders.

The announcement was made earlier today by PATA CEO Dr. Mario Hardy during the Association’s first hybrid event, under the theme “Asia Pacific Tourism Recovery Trends & Outlook” and organised in partnership with the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) and the Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok.

“PATA is committed to growing our members business by embracing digital technology to enable strong partnerships, particularly as we look towards recovery post COVID-19. The additional benefit for our members allows them to network and engage with each other and other travel stakeholders all year round, instead of just at our events,” said Dr. Hardy. “Over the past few years, the Association has had to adapt, be agile and be creative in order to serve the best interests of our members and the industry as a whole, and the PATA Marketplace is just a natural extension of this mission.”

As a digital showroom, PATA members are invited to showcase their company profile and products at the Marketplace by creating a complimentary exhibitor profile. It only takes a few minutes to set up a profile and exhibitors can update their own profiles anytime; publish news, products and services, and videos; and connect with visitors via one-to-one chat, audio or video calls in a single click.

The PATA Marketplace allows exhibitors to keep its “followers” updated on news, announcements, and blog posts; get notified of customers’ requests that match their profile; easily share exhibitor profiles with relevant stakeholders by email or social media; showcase their products year round as a PATA member, and increase their brand exposure.

As a online community for all travel industry stakeholders, all travel buyers and industry professionals are invited to join as a visitor to find new travel suppliers and products; participate in chat groups and discussion; discover and connect with new travel suppliers and products which can be filtered by destination and hashtag; submit proposals, and “follow” exhibitors to keep abreast of their latest news and updates.
