The PATA Youth Symposium, a half-day forum, is being offered to students and young professionals to engage with industry professionals during plenary talks and roundtable discussions on various topics relevant to the destination.
The PATA Annual Summit is a PATA signature event that aims to attract 400 delegates from over 30 countries, bringing together leaders, industry shapers, and senior decision-makers who are engaged with the travel and tourism growth in the Asia Pacific region.

Additionally, the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) along with PATA, took the unprecedented step to have their Ministerial meeting on Guam, scheduled for May 21, 2016. As the leading international organization in the field of tourism, UNWTO promotes tourism as a driver of economic growth, development in environmental sustainability, and offers leadership and support to the sector in advancing knowledge and tourism policies worldwide.
