PATA Global Insights Conference returns to Auckland

PATA Global Insights Conference returns to Auckland
July 2, 2016

Following the success of the PATA Global Insights Conference in 2015, the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) will stage a new global insights event in Auckland in September.

To be held at the Skycity Grand Hotel, Auckland on 30th September, this year’s PATA Global Insights Conference (PGIC 2016) will focus on the theme 'Exploring Connectivity'.

Connectivity through all aspects of destination industry development will be explored by an impressive line-up of international experts and thought leaders representing organisations such as IATA, CAPA, Gres et Delebasi, OAG Aviation and ADARA with panel discussions once again moderated by a senior TV business anchor from BBC World News.

PGIC 2016 is being backed by Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED).

Looking forward to the conference, PATA Chief Executive Mario Hardy stated “after the success of our conference, and the generous warmth and hospitality received in Auckland during the event, we are pleased to once again be working with TIANZ, ATEED and SKYCITY Entertainment to organise PGIC 2016.

“Last year’s event provided all industry stakeholders involved and affected by travel and tourism to gain valuable insights and knowledge into future trends, and this year we are focusing on the action points by connecting the dots through the theme of connectivity.”

ATEED Head of Tourism Jason Hill added “ATEED is proud to once again support the PATA Global Insights conference following last year’s successful conference which was held in Auckland.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to inject some new and external thinking into the tourism industry.

“Hosting an event of this calibre in Auckland again provides another opportunity to hear from experts from other parts of the world that will help inspire new ideas, new products and new ways of attracting people to New Zealand.”
