On October 21-23, 2019, China held its premier travel sector tourism event in Haikou, Hainan Island, where international travel agent buyers learned about new destinations in China. The conference hosted by the Haikou government and tourism board brought in distinguished media from the U.S. and Europe who attended the special three-day event. PATA CEO, Mario Hardy said, “The expansion of the middle class in China tells us that 280 million Chinese have the means to travel and have yet to travel.”
Haikou is home to Mission Hills Resort, the world’s largest golf resort with ten courses on the property.
Elizabeth Chin, Chairman of PATA New York Chapter was a guest speaker.
