Pata UK & Ireland to host more virtual quizzes for agents

Pata UK & Ireland is to host another series of virtual training quizzes and bingo for travel agents this summer.

Two hour-long online quizzes will be run on July 1 and 15 while a bingo session is scheduled for July 8, with prizes up for grabs at each event. All are free for agents to attend.

The UK and Ireland chapter of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (Pata), which began running virtual training events for agents during the pandemic last year, said the events were intended to be fun and informal.

Sponsored by Travel Uni, the interactive quizzes consist of 20 questions about the Asia Pacific region, including those covered by six guest presenters: Tourism Australia; Cook Islands Tourism; Hong Kong Tourism Board; Tourism Thailand; Macao; and new this summer, AAT Kings.

Pata UK & Ireland account director Matt McCausland said: “The Pata team had such fun hosting our virtual events in May so we’re really excited to be back for July. We can promise more prizes, quickfire training sessions and rapid bingo dobbing!”

He added: “While the pandemic forced us to take the plunge into the digital realm, we have learned virtual events are not just a necessity, but a win-win opportunity for both organisations and attendees – even after life returns to normal.”

Further virtual events will continue as well as in-person events, the first of which is the Taste of Pata London event on September 21 and the Taste of Pata Dublin event on November 10.

Agents can register here for the event.
