Macau, a strong supporter of PATA over the years, has been chosen as the host city for the PATA Travel Mart 2010. Around 1,500 participants are expected to take part in the event.

MGTO Director Jo„o Manuel Costa Antunes said, "The Macau SAR Government is committed to develop an integrated tourism model to gradually achieve diversification of the tourism industry that would appeal to visitors of different interests from around the world. Macau successfully hosted the 54th PATA Annual Conference in 2005 and the wide accolades we received from the industry proved that Macau has the capability to organize large-scale international conferences. Winning the bid to host PATA Travel Mart for the first time will further showcase our strengths as a host city for international exhibitions and conventions."

PATA Travel Mart is one of the widely recognized travel trade shows for Asia Pacific with a long history. It serves as a travel contracting and networking platform that attracts many high-profile buyers and exhibitors every year.

MGTO has been a member of PATA since 1966 and the PATA Macau Chapter was set up in 1983.

The PATA Travel Mart 2008 attracted over 1,000 trade delegates, comprising 374 global buyers, 715 Asia Pacific sellers and numbers of international media. Mainland China sent a strong delegation of 80 buyers and sellers to the Mart as the country paves way for the next PATA Travel Mart to be held in Hangzhou in 2009.
