SANPATA – San Diego Chapter of PATA

11-8PATA Chapters are established throughout the world to assist in the fulfillment of the objectives of the Association. They are local community organizations of travel industry professionals who join in a co-operative endeavor-within the framework of PATA to develop travel and tourism to, from and within the Asia Pacific area.

Our members attend Destinational Programs with the goal of obtaining up-to-date knowledge on all aspects of tourism to these vast and varied countries.

Members also participate in Out-of-Country Workshops for first-hand knowledge and updates on what clients can expect to experience during their travels, plus Educational Seminars that answer questions regarding the “nuts and bolts” of each destination so that our Travel Agent members receive a well-rounded and saleable knowledge of the various PATA destinations.

Currently, there are 41 PATA Chapters around the world assist local travel industry communities.
