Four additional agents’ training events on the Asia-Pacific region are being run by PATA in response to demand.
The online sessions, hosted by PATA in conjunction with TravelUni, include a variety of suppliers in each. So far, more than 170 agents have taken part.
The first additional event takes place on 30 July, 16:00-17:00. The additional dates will also see a new format including virtual bingo, complete with prizes.
Sharon Anderson, PATA UK and Ireland trade events executive, said: “As lockdowns are cautiously being lifted, we can hope that the travel and tourism industry’s worst period is over.
"However, it is still a challenging time and we just wanted to have a little fun with the introduction of virtual bingo and let agents know that all of us in the industry are still behind them."
Later this year the association takes its annual Taste of PATA event online under the new name of Experience PATA.
