VANCOUVER, January 25, 2019 — PATA Canada Vancouver Capilano University Student Chapter begins the year with a new name and logo for its podcast about innovative topics in the tourism industry. What in the World in Travel is available for free streaming and download on the Student Chapter’s website, iTunes, and Google Play Music. The first episode to be released under this name will be on January 27, 2019, featuring JC Wong, Young Tourism Professionals Ambassador for PATA .

This brand refresh comes as a result of insights gained from attending masterclasses at the Vancouver Podcast Festival in November 2018 and feedback from the community. The new name will better target tourism professionals and travel enthusiasts from outside of a university setting, as the podcast contents appeal to a wide audience. In addition, episodes will be released according to a predetermined schedule on the 28th of each month that school is in session. The fun, informational interview style of programming will remain the same.

Since launching in September 2018, the Student Chapter’s podcast has released four episodes that feature 30-minute interviews with travel professionals from around the world. This includes Bjorn Harvold, Co-Founder of Travelkoin for blockchain technology in tourism; Sally Fung, Art Director and Digital Nomad through Remote Year; Nicolas Dubrocard, Advocate for Elephant Standards in Tourism; and Paul Rogers, Visionary for Gross National Happiness as CEO of Planet Happiness.

PATA Canada Vancouver Capilano University Student Chapter was established in March 2017 and is honoured to receive the PATA Student Chapter Award of Excellence 2018 for its achievements in its first year. What in the World in Travel podcast is made possible through the ongoing support of Capilano University School of Tourism Management and the technical support of fellow classmates at the campus’ Capilano Radio Club. The new podcast logo was developed with help from Capilano University student Harrison Shaw.
