Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) for the first time hosted the PATA Malaysia and Singapore Inter Chapter Meeting and Networking, held at Berjaya Langkawi Resort from July 28-31.
The aim was to provide an opportunity for the chapters to exchange updates; share best practices, success stories and upcoming plans; and explore avenues to enhance inter-chapter relationships through joint programmes.
LADA CEO Azizan Noordin at the meeting also shared that beyond becoming a PATA member in January 2017, the organisation is considering establishing PATA Malaysia Chapter – Langkawi Chapter with the assistance from PATA. Other plans include setting up a 24-hour Crisis Management Centre in Langkawi, and securing eco-based events to further promote Geo Park and recycling/sustainability programme.
The three-day meeting also marked the series of events that will be organised as Tourism Malaysia and LADA prepare to host the PATA Travel Mart in Langkawi come September 2018
