Chengdu will follow Manila as host cities for the next two PATA Travel Marts. In September 2013, the PATA Travel Mart will be held in the Chinese city of Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province. The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) announced the news from its Executive Board Meeting on July 28, at the Hotel ICON, in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
The PATA Travel Mart brings together hundreds of international buyers and sellers in one marketplace and offers opportunities for travel industry stakeholders to build their business through pre-scheduling appointments, education programs and social functions. Following Hong Kong, Hangzhou and Macau, Chengdu is the fourth Chinese city to win the bid to host PATA Travel Mart, and will be the first city to host PTM in Midwest China.
