NY PATA Weekend at Javits Center
The NY PATA booth has been making waves at the Travel and Adventure Show, attracting heads of government, celebrities, and prominent figures in the travel industry, as well as suppliers. Not only that, it has become a sought-after booth for travel industry professionals looking to become members of NY PATA. In fact, on Saturday, the booth hosted a member’s reunion and group-photo opportunity that provided a relaxing break from the hectic trade show schedule.
We are proud to announce that over fifteen NY PATA members were exhibitors, and had invested in their own booths at the Travel and Adventure Show. This event was a true showcase of the talent and dedication of our members, and we are grateful to all who supported our exhibiting members.

Elizabeth conveyed her heartfelt appreciation to John Elliott for gracing the New York PATA booth and illuminating the allure of the Asia Pacific region to a broader audience. Her feature on CBS News Live provided a remarkable platform to spotlight the region, encouraging more individuals to embark on journeys and discover the wonders of the world.
We were honored by the presence of Peter Greenberg, a distinguished travel expert and journalist, at our booth during the Travel and Adventure Show. The opportunity to engage in conversation with Peter Greenberg was truly extraordinary.
