PROGRAMME | SPONSOR | ENQUIRE

The highly-acclaimed and anticipated PATA Global Insights Conference (PGIC) returns to Auckland on September 29, 2017. With the support of Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) and BBC World News, the event takes place at the SKYCITY Grand Hotel.

Under the theme ‘R U Future Ready’ the conference features presentations from high profile speakers representing major international brands such as Microsoft, Boeing and TripAdvisor. The programme also features a fascinating session with ‘Tomorrow’s Tourism Leaders’. Supported by Auckland University of Technology (AUT), delegates will explore the future for tourism through the eyes and minds of AUT students destined to lead the industry in the years to come.

“I am very excited about the 2017 PGIC programme. There is no doubt that delegates will be wowed by the depth of knowledge, insights and global reputation of our guest speakers,” says Chris Flynn, PATA Regional Director – Pacific.

This year’s programme includes, for the first time, a Tourism Leaders Forum (Thursday 28 September) where confirmed speakers include the Chief Executives of ATEED, Tourism Industry Aotearoa (TIA) and Tourism New Zealand. Air New Zealand is also represented. Opening the batting is former Test cricketer Martin Snedden who masterminded the nation’s Tourism 2025 Plan when he was Chief Executive of TIA.

Chris Flynn adds, “This Forum will address issues, threats, challenges and opportunities for New Zealand’s tourism sector in line with the Tourism 2025 Plan and beyond.”

Hywel Griffith, the BBC World News correspondent for Australia and New Zealand, is moderating panel sessions at both PATA events.
