About

Headquartered in Bangkok, the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is a membership organization that works for the responsible development of the Asia Pacific travel and tourism industry. In partnership with private and public sector members, PATA promotes the sustainable growth, value and quality of travel and tourism to, from and within, the region. PATA’s 41 chapters worldwide include thousands of travel professionals involved in promoting and selling travel to the region.

 

The association provides leadership and counsel on an individual and collective basis to over 80 government, state and city tourism bodies; nearly 50 international airlines, airports and cruise lines, and many hundreds of travel industry companies across the Asia Pacific region and beyond. PATA’s Strategic Intelligence Centre (SIC) offers data and insights on travel to the region that includes inbound and outbound statistics, analysis and forecasts as well as in-depth reports on strategic tourism markets. The PATA Foundation contributes to the sustainable and responsible development of travel and tourism in Asia Pacific through the protection of the environment, the conservation of heritage and support for education.
