THE PATA Investment Forum is set to take place in Bangalore, India on September 7, prior to the PATA Travel Mart 2015. This year’s focus will be on topics of government and policy, as well as commercial and private interests for the development of tourism in India.
The announcement came alongside a reveal that PATA will be partnering hospitality consulting firm Horwath HTL for the organisation of the event.
Mario Hardy, CEO of PATA, said: “The state of Karnataka and the city of Bangalore have much to offer tourists, with its rich heritage and culture. There is tremendous potential for the responsible development of tourism in the state, which can be achieved with the right investments in place. The PATA Investment Forum will allow travel and tourism professionals in the state the opportunity to learn how to unlock this potential.”
Delegates can expect representatives from local government and private sector players to be present at the forum, allowing for open discussions on how to best develop India’s travel industry.
Entry to the event is free for the public.
