PATA picks Bangkok for its 2024 Travel Mart

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is set to organise the 47th PATA Travel Mart (PTM) at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) in Bangkok, Thailand, from August 27 to 29.

PTM 2024 will feature a one-day conference, a two-day B2B business travel mart, and over 10,000 business appointments between buyers and sellers from more than 40 destinations across six regions.

PATA CEO Noor Ahmad Hamid said: “With nearly 30 million international visitors in 2023 and a recent visa exemption announcement for travellers from more than 60 destinations, Thailand is the perfect setting for all to engage in B2B networking and partnership-building with clients, decision-makers, and exhibitors worldwide.”

According to the report of the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI), in 2022 Thailand was ranked number one in South-east Asia, and fourth in Asia in terms of exhibition spaces. In addition, Bangkok is a business events hub with ease of connectivity to the city via two international airports, Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang.

Moreover, Thailand has been home to PATA’s headquarters for a quarter of a century since its relocation from San Francisco to Thailand in 1998.
