PATA Destination Marketing Forum (PDMF) 2020 gathers the top minds in destination travel for inspiring and insightful discussions on marketing and managing tourism growth to lesser-known destinations.
This action-packed annual event features two nonstop days of learning, discovery and networking. Alongside the one-day conference that brings together high-profile tourism professionals worldwide, the one-day Technical Tour offers an immersive experience of the host destination – a showcase of lesser-known yet attractive corners of the world and an unprecedented opportunity to explore the region’s natural landscapes and cultural treasures.
In advocating sustainable tourism and emerging destinations, PATA is pleased to offer complimentary registration to all interested parties. PDMF 2020 is generously hosted by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture Sarawak, Sarawak Tourism Board, and the Sarawak Convention Bureau.

Revealing a side of Asia unlike anywhere else, Sarawak offers an alternative for those seeking humble authenticity, far from the tourist-trap clichés.
The largest among the thirteen Malaysian states, Sarawak is located in northwest Borneo Island, bordered by Sabah (Malaysia), Kalimantan (Indonesia), and Brunei – a gateway to Borneo’s natural wonders and cultural riches. As the capital of Sarawak and one of the major hubs in East Malaysia, Kuching boasts a sophisticated mosaic of cultures, cuisines and crafts, with a range of accommodation, restaurants and nightlife to suit most tastes and pockets.
Once a riverine trading post, Kuching’s city centre is well-preserved and compact. Best explored by foot or by sampan along the Sarawak River, Kuching’s bustling streets and alleyways are lined with fascinating British Colonial style architecture, archaic Chinese temples and centuries-old shophouses, alongside artisanal shops, cafes and bars.
Kuching can be accessed via Kuching International Airport, situated a 20-minute ride away from the city centre. The airport offers connectivity with frequent flights from Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu and Penang in Peninsular Malaysia, as well as within the region from Singapore, Jakarta (Indonesia) and Pontianak (Indonesia). Airline partnerships provide the convenience of seamless connectivity with a single combined ticket and check-in baggage straight to Kuching.
