Therefore we are pleased to invite you, as a representative of the media on Phuket to this joint event held on behalf of SKAL International and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA).
This will be an ideal opportunity for PATA to introduce itself to SKAL members in Phuket, and learn more about PATA's history and leadership role in promoting Asia Pacific's travel and tourism's industries.
It will be a meet and greet session featuring speakers from some of the Thailand's leading international travel companies. The speakers will include:
Mr Luzi Matzig, CEO Asian Trails and PATA Global Board Member
