Dr Helena Lo has been named as the winner of the 2015 PATA Face of the Future award. Helena is Director of Pousada de Mong-H - (the Educational Hotel of Institute for Tourism Studies - IFT), Macau SAR.

A native of Macau SAR, Helena has a Doctorate degree in Business Administration, a Master degree in Education, and a Bachelor degree in Tourism Business Management. Her research interests include human resources and green hotel management.

 Helena has a wealth of experience in the hotel industry, including almost 14 years with Pousada de Mong-Ha, overseeing its operations and development.

Helena said, I truly feel honoured and privileged to receive the prestigious PATA Face of the Future award. PATAs long-term commitment to developing a sustainable Asia Pacific travel and tourism industry is well admired by myself since I joined IFT as a student. At IFT, we incorporate environmental initiatives into our hotel operations and our curriculums, where our students start at a young age to recognise the related importance in ensuring a sustainable development in the industry as they graduated into an increasingly low-carbon economy.

Mr Mario Hardy, CEO, PATA, added, On behalf of PATA, I would like to congratulate Dr Helena Lo on winning the 2015 PATA Face of the Future award. Her outstanding contribution to the responsible development of travel and tourism, specifically in the area of Human Capital Development, is especially relevant today. With the rapid growth of the tourism sector in the Asia Pacific region, Human Capital Development will be one of the greatest challenges for the travel and tourism industry. Her experience and insight will be most welcomed to the PATA Chairman in inviting her to join the PATA Executive Board as a non-voting member and observer.
