In a PATA travel mart, representatives of PATA member organisations enjoy the opportunity to meet with leading retail agencies, wholesalers, corporate and incentive travel planners and other producers of travel from around the world in an atmosphere of private business appointments. Several individual meetings are held and billions of dollars of business are closed.
Sellers get to meet buyers of their products and services from around the world.
For the buyer, mart provides an opportunity to meet hundreds of suppliers from throughout the Asia-Pacific region at one place. The buyers become aware of the products, packages and programmes.
Buyers and sellers pre-register themselves. They receive listings of participating organisations. Delegates pre-book appointments with participants from these lists and PATA coordinates a computerised schedule of appointments. Delegates can also book more appointments on site.
