It is common knowledge that tourism has become one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world, providing countless benefits in each destination. Driven by the growing purchasing power in emerging economy markets, increased air connectivity, and more affordable ways to travel, Asia Pacific is expected to receive a large influx of arrivals as the result of increased intraregional demand. Between 2018 and 2023, it is expected that there will be a 6.2% average annual growth rate of international visitor arrivals (IVAs) from Asia to Asia Pacific. The average annual growth rate of IVAs from all markets to Asia Pacific is predicted to be at 5.5% during this time, which will see the region welcoming nearly 900 million visitors by the end of 2023.
Ahead of PATA’s publication of the Asia Pacific Visitor Forecasts 2019-2023 report in February 2019, a webinar will be held on January 29, 2019 (3:00 PM ICT). Hosted by Mr. John Koldowski, Special Advisor to the CEO at PATA, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions about the report and find out what this anticipated tourism growth will mean for them and their businesses.
What exactly are these visitor projections for the region? How is the industry performing? What are the growth patterns and IVAs of each destination? Who are the key origin markets? Which factors are likely to affect these projections? How can destinations use this information to stay ahead of the competition?
