PATA UK ramps up agent training as Asia Pacific removed from red list

In response to all destinations in the Asia Pacific region being removed from the UK's red list, Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) UK & Ireland is launching new training sessions to help agents as travel demand picks up again.

PATA will host another series of virtual training events for travel agents this autumn and winter.

This forms the organisation's ever growing line-up of interactive training events, and introducing for the first time two brand new formats.

The first of the new training events will take place later this month (20 October), with 'PATA Pictionary', designed to test not only agents' knowledge of the Asia Pacific region but also their artistic skills.

This will be followed by PATA's first ever virtual Training Treasure Hunt on 24 November 2021.

The two new formats will complement PATA's roster of online 'gameshows' where attendees will get the chance to hear from four Asia-Pacific presenters before testing their knowledge to win prizes.

"Video platforms continue to make it relatively easy for us to stay in touch with agents, however we recognise it's important to keep looking for more inventive ways to engage with our agents," said PATA Account Director, Matt McCausland.

"With the hugely successful return of Taste of PATA last month, our in-person events have begun to resume soon but we recognise that there is still a huge demand for online events: as we head towards 2022 we've got lots of exciting plans for both online and in-person."

All virtual training events are free for agents to attend. https://pata.org.uk/pata-events/
