Fast forward to 2050
PATA is celebrating 65 amazing years of working with public and private sector organisations to promote travel to, from and within the Asia Pacific region.

We’ve asked travel industry professionals to share their visions of what tourists will be doing in 2050 as PATA prepares to celebrate its centenary.

“I want to be among the first tourists travelling to the moon. Lunar vacations will be part of everyday tourism by 2050, but there are still so many places to explore in Asia.” - Tomislav Babic.

Note to PATA:
“Travel has changed enormously in this region over the past 65 years. I am very confident that PATA will be here for at least the next 65 years.” - Willem Niemeijer
