Macau - Bangkok and Beijing.

April 28, 05
We have just returned from overseas where we attended the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) annual convention in Macau. We met personally with PATA President and CEO, Peter de Jong, and his staff, and we plan to work closely with the organization as we give our audiences more visibility to the organization through the TravelTalkNETWORK including a launch of a PATA branded radio program in the next few months  (www.pata.org).

Then it  was off to Bangkok where TravelTalkRADIO's where Sandy moderated a panel of airline experts at the 2005 Airline Distribution conference sponsored by the Universal Air Travel Plan (UATP).

UATP is owned by 15 of the worlds largest air carriers, UATP is the oldest credit card issuer on earth and handles nearly $10B a year in credit transactions.
