On day one, the team attended the PATA’s Youth Symposium. The symposium aims at providing opportunities for the next generation young hospitality and tourism professionals (and students) to come together and learn from industry leaders. This year the theme of the symposium was Progress with Purpose. The symposium includes presentations on ‘The Future of Sustainable Destination Branding’, ‘Purposeful Innovation and Disruptive Change’, ‘Empowering Your Future Development’ and ‘Progressing Alongside Community’.

The main conference of the Summit was very informative and inspiring on the future development of travel business.  The conference speakers included both leaders of public and private sector, including the co-founder of Airbnb and leaders of five tourism boards worldwide, among many other influencers in the travel and tourism industry within Asia Pacific and beyond. - See more at: https://www.pata.org/pata-annual-summit-2019-highlights-videos-and-key-takeaways/#sthash.vxIi5les.dpuf
