The Pacific Asia Travel Association Gold Awards recognises exceptional achievement in a variety of endeavours, acknowledging and rewarding the very best that the Asia Pacific’s travel industry has to offer. The winning projects set industry standards for excellence and innovation, serving as examples for others to follow.

In addition to the 30 Gold Awards, PATA will present up to four Grand Awards for best of show entries in the following broad categories: Environment, Education and Training, Heritage and Culture and Marketing Campaign.

All award recipients will be honoured at the PATA Gold Awards Lunch and Presentation on September 14, during the 2018 PATA Travel Mart, Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre (MIEC), Langkawi, Malaysia. They will also be on display at the Mart for all delegates to enjoy.

Winning a PATA Gold Award gives a major boost to an organisation’s marketing and public relations profile. The winning entries will be featured in the PTM daily newspaper and will also enjoy the benefit of gaining international media exposure as a result of press releases and other news material.

All winners receive complimentary copies of the PATA Gold Awards 2018 winners’ showcase booklet summarising the highlights of each winning entry.

Entries will be judged by travel industry experts. The deadline for submissions is May 11, 2018. We invite you to review the categories, study the requirements and begin preparing your entry today.
