BANGKOK, December 17, 2014 — The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is pleased to announce that the monthly Connected Visitor Economy Bulletin is now available for free to both members and non-members.

The Connected Visitor Economy Bulletin is produced on a monthly basis and covers trends and developments across the Asia Pacific region. It aims to monitor the far-reaching impact of travel and tourism across national economies, in order to encourage better and more comprehensive policy responses from governments in support of the sector.

PATA CEO Mario Hardy noted, “With the ever-changing landscape of the travel and tourism industry, stakeholders need to be informed and up-to-date to stay relevant in today’s environment. The Connected Visitor Economy Bulletin offers all stakeholders the opportunity to discover the trends and developments within the region and gain a competitive advantage.”

The most recent edition of the Connected Visitor Economy Bulletin is now available to view. The last edition of this year’s VE Bulletin, written by Jonathan Van Parys, Vice President Strategy, Dragone, examines the relationship between performing arts and live entertainment to the visitor experience and how Asia’s top travel destinations will house some of the world’s most iconic shows over the coming years.
