PATA Canada set to launch in April

PATA Canada, a newly founded resource for Asia Pacific in the Canadian Travel trade, will be going live on Apr. 22. The organization launch is the result of eight months of preparation and is currently made up of 27 founding members.

PATA Canada will be a membership-based organization, with retail agencies enjoying complimentary membership and suppliers paying annual membership dues of $250. 

The official launch will take place in Markham at the Diamond Restaurant, while agents living outside the Greater Toronto Area will be able to attend the event virtually.

Registration for those looking to attend will open in conjunction with PATA Canada’s new website. The website will include a directory of airlines, cruise lines, tour operators and tourist boards that all provide product to the Asia Pacific region.

The PATA Canada Board for 2015 – 2016 includes Rocky Lo (president), Judi Pym (treasurer), Doug Vogl (membership) and Sandra Ngoh-Fonseka (programs). Barbara Dirnberger will fill the supporting role of Executive Director.
