Tony Fernandes, AirAsia Group CEO, has been confirmed as a speaker of PATA Youth Symposium in Macau.

 Hosted by the Institute for Tourism Studies (IFT) and organised by the Association’s Human Capital Development Committee, the symposium will take place on Wednesday, 13 September with the theme of ‘Enabling Travel and Managing a Complex Future’.

Dr. Mario Hardy, PATA CEO said, “The PATA Youth Symposium is a cornerstone of our commitment to the next generation of young tourism professionals.

AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes said, "These are exciting times for air travel in Asia. The low-cost revolution has made flying affordable and we are seeing more and more people fly for the first time. This creates opportunities as well as challenges for the region's travel and tourism industry. What role will automation play? How do we ensure sustainable development of tourism? What are the constraints we will face as traffic grows? Are there enough low-cost terminals to cater for the fastest growing aviation segment? The PATA Youth Symposium is a great forum to discuss these questions and more, and I look forward to hearing what students have to share on the future of travel in Asia."

The symposium includes plenary talks on ‘Artificial Intelligence and Automation in the Tourism Industry: Is C3PO taking our jobs?’; ‘Where Does Responsible Travel Fit in our Future?’ and ‘Enabling Air Travel for All: How Air Asia has Become the World Leading Low Cost Carrier’.

 The event also features an informal chat with Tony Fernandes and interactive roundtable discussions on ‘What opportunities and challenges do you see in enabling greater volume of travel?’ and ‘What role do human’s play in managing a responsible industry in the future?'.
