PATA Travel Mart 2015 is be­ing hosted by Depart­ment of Tourism, Gov­ern­ment of Kar­nataka. The 38th PATA Travel Mart will take place in Ben­galuru, In­dia on Septem­ber 6- 8, 2015 at Ban­ga­lore In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­ter (BIEC), In­dia’s first LEED Cer­ti­fied ex­hi­bi­tion and con­fer­ence fa­cil­ity, recog­nised by the US Green Build­ing Coun­cil for its en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly de­sign. PATA Travel Mart has changed the for­mat this year, so there will be three ma­jor events- the Tech­nol­ogy Fo­rum, the In­vest­ment Fo­rum and the PATA Travel Mart in it­self. PATA is co-or­gan­is­ing a Tech­nol­ogy Fo­rum with a lead­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion spe­cial­is­ing in Ben­galuru - Pho­cuswright - who are known for qual­ity events and thought lead­er­ship. The In­vest­ment Fo­rum in part­ner­ship with hos­pi­tal­ity con­sult­ing firm, Hor­wath HTL, will fo­cus on two spe­cific ar­eas, gov­ern­ment and pol­icy, and com­mer­cial and pri­vate, al­low­ing del­e­gates to gain greater in­sights and knowl­edge to grow their busi­ness. Build­ing upon a first suc­cess­ful year of Re­spon­si­ble Travel Pav­il­ion at the 2014 PATA Travel Mart in Ph­nom Penh, Cam­bo­dia, PATA is once again of­fer­ing PTM del­e­gates the op­por­tu­nity to show­case their re­spon­si­ble and sus­tain­able busi­ness prac­tices. The Pav­il­ion will be lo­cated in the main hall of the BIEC. Ex­hibitors in the Re­spon­si­ble Travel Pav­il­ion re­ceive fur­ther op­por­tu­nity to net­work and do busi­ness with like-minded or­gan­i­sa­tions – to share their knowl­edge, ex­pe­ri­ences, and lessons learned in an in­for­mal set­ting. Over 1200 del­e­gates and in­ter­na­tional me­dia rep­re­sent­ing 61 coun­tries and al­most all In­dian states are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the mart. Twelve ho­tels from the city are the “Of­fi­cial Ho­tels”, which will ac­com­mo­date th­ese del­e­gates. PATA is also in­tro­duc­ing a ‘Travel Tech­nol­ogy Pav­il­ion’, which will pro­vide travel and tourism tech­nol­ogy busi­nesses with a plat­form to pro­mote and build busi­ness, net­work with rel­e­vant sup­pli­ers and dis­cover the very lat­est prod­ucts, ser­vices and so­lu­tions from top travel tech­nol­ogy pro­fes­sion­als.
