INDUSTRY.co.id - Bangkok, April 13, 2021 -- This year, the PATA Youth Symposium, with the theme ‘Reflect, Reconnect, Revive’, will take place alongside the Virtual PATA Annual Summit 2021.

The PATA Youth Symposium is a 4-part series happening over three days from April 27 – April 29, 2021.

The Symposium is organised by the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) and supported by the following PATA Youth Sponsors: Guam Visitors Bureau, iFree Group, MAP2 Ventures, Sigmund and Talent Basket.

“Throughout last year, tourism students experienced a huge upheaval. They had to adapt to online learning platforms in isolation without the ability to meet their schoolmates in person. These conditions hampered their progress of any passion projects and stunted the growth of their own personal networks. However, the silver lining in all this was that online communities grew in size and engagement and an amazing community of international youths have rallied around the PATA Youth programme,” said PATA Youth Ambassador, Ms Aletheia Tan.

“The PATA Youth Symposium is organised by PATA to continue supporting our youth community during this global pandemic. This is a continuation of our dedication to Human Capital Development and to ensure the resiliency of our industry in the long run. We are extremely grateful to our PATA Youth sponsors and various co-hosts for their support for both the event and the development of tomorrow’s tourism leaders.”

The PATA Youth Symposium begins on Tuesday, April 27 from 1000-1100 hrs ICT (GMT+7) with “Part 1: Tourism as a Positive Catalyst, an exciting panel discussion that is open to all interested parties.

Both youth and the young at heart are welcomed to join the conversation.

This session was inspired and co-created with Ms Pauline Yang, a PATA Youth based in Hawaii who represents the tourism students in our international community that believe that their careers in this industry can make a positive impact.

Our other expert guest speakers will represent the voices of the public sector, the industry and the investment community and will discuss how together the tourism industry can build a more responsible future post-COVID-19.

Expert guest speakers include Datuk Musa Hj. Yusof, Deputy Director General, Promotion, Tourism Malaysia; Jason Lusk, Managing Partner, Clickable Impact Consulting Group and Consultant, ADB Ventures; and Suyin Lee, Managing Director, Discova.
