Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 3 October 2003

The 26th PATA Travel Mart closed in Singapore today bound for Bangkok in 2004, Kuala Lumpur in 2005 and Hong Kong in 2006.

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Mart has been held in Singapore every year since 1998 and now resumes an annual rotation, starting with Bangkok (Queen Sirikit Centre) September 22-24, 2004.

PATA President and CEO Mr. Peter de Jong, hailed Singapore as a great host and thanked the Singapore Host Committee for six years of magnificent support.

“Singapore has been generous, efficient and proactive throughout our six year stay. Singapore has been exemplary as a travel and tourism ambassador, not just for itself, but for the whole region through its unbending support for the Mart.

“The hosts, especially Singapore Tourism Board, Singapore Airlines and the Singapore Hotel Association’s continued support of PATA have been a great example to the industry,” he said.

“Our horizon now shifts to Bangkok where we will consolidate and grow upon the great success of this year’s Mart.”

The 190 travel buyers who attended PATA Travel Mart 2003 met with 213 seller organisations from 33 countries. Net booth space at this year’s Mart was 2,325 sqm, up 56.5 percent on last year’s Mart.
