About the Seminar

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) invites all PATA members and industry colleagues attending World Travel Market next month in London to join a special workshop that will examine the important role of youth in transforming travel and tourism.

Young people are the primary assets in driving successful long-term growth of the travel and tourism industry, while industry disruptors are fundamentally changing the way the industry can develop and operate. The session will examine this evolution as it transforms fundamentally the way in which entrepreneurship develops over the next decade.

PATA will be focusing its attention next year on the young tourism professional, with this WTM Session being one of the first steps in examining the next generations' impact on the industry.
