The PATA Annual Summit brings together international thought leaders, industry shapers and senior decision-makers who are professionally engaged with the Asia Pacific region. The Summit embraces a global forum for enhancing the sustainable growth, value and quality of tourism.

The event comprises a one-day conference, the PATA Annual General Meeting and the PATA Youth Symposium which provides students and young tourism professionals the opportunity to engage with senior industry leaders.

Part of the event programme, the UNWTO/PATA Leaders Debate – organised in partnership between PATA and the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) – will also bring together industry leaders from both the public and private sector to address thought-provoking issues currently affecting the industry.



PAS 2020 is generously hosted by the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority


All roads lead to Ras Al Khaimah! There are plenty of ways to arrive in the Emirate – visitors can fly in via Dubai International Airport or Sharjah Airport, both of which are only a 45-minute drive away, or straight into Ras Al Khaimah Airport. For those visiting from Dubai, you could also try Seawings – a luxurious seaplane experience that also offers a tour around the vast landscapes of Ras Al Khaimah.


With over 7,000 years of fascinating history, towering mountains, terracotta deserts and beautiful beaches – Ras Al Khaimah, the northernmost Emirate of the United Arab Emirates – promises an authentic Arabian experience you won’t forget.

Ras Al Khaimah is home to the UAE’s highest peak, Jebel Jais, where you can find exciting attractions at the Jebel Jais Adventure Park. From exhilarating speeds on the World’s Longest Zipline – Jebel Jais Flight, to a 7-zipline circuit tour and new hiking trails, Jebel Jais has something for every thrill seeker. Ras Al Khaimah is full of surprises, enough to satisfy those who seek thrills, who want serenity, who want to connect with nature or even reconnect with their families. Whatever adventure you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.
