PATA Ready For Virtual Mart In September

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) has announced that Virtual PATA Travel Mart (PTM) 2021 will take place from Sept. 2 to Sept. 5 and Leshan, China will once again be the featured destination for the event.

Virtual PTM is a business-to-business travel contracting and virtual networking event that both mirrors and enhances the features of the long-standing PTM, which boasts over four decades of experience in connecting qualified international buyers and sellers from Asia Pacific and beyond through one-to-one business appointments.

PATA CEO Liz Ortiguera said: “PATA’s goal is to bring valuable content and virtual networking opportunities to enable our members and trade show attendees to stay current with the latest travel products and build connections with new global colleagues. I invite our industry stakeholders to join us for this year’s event, as we support our members and the industry in this recovery.”

The event is being organized in conjunction with the Sichuan International Travel Expo (SITE) with the support of Official Event Partner, the Leshan Culture, Radio, Television and Tourism Bureau, and is powered by the Official Virtual Event Partner, Dragon Trail Interactive.

The event will offer two business days of one-on-one meetings with up to 50 matched appointments across all time zones from Sept. 2 to Sept. 3. There will also be two trade visitor days on Sept. 4 to Sept. 5. In addition, industry trends and insights will be a part of the program as well as interactive networking breaks with special sessions from various national tourism organizations (NTOs).
