PATA Gold Awards 2023

PATA Gold Awards recognises exceptional achievement in a variety of endeavours, acknowledging and rewarding the very best that the Asia Pacific’s travel industry has to offer. Since its inception in 1984, the PATA Grand and Gold Awards winning projects have been setting industry standards for excellence and innovation, serving as examples for others to follow.

Two Grand Title Winners will be awarded in each of the following 2 categories:

1) Marketing

2) Sustainability and Social Responsibility 

Within these two general categories, 25 individual awards for specific themes will be awarded.

As travel resumes, the award ceremony will be back in-person after a three-year hiatus. All award recipients will be honoured at the PATA Gold Presentation, as part of PATA Travel Mart, 2023 in New Delhi, India. They will also be on display at the Mart for all delegates to enjoy.

Entries will be judged by independent travel industry experts. The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2023. We invite you to review the categories, study the requirements and begin preparing your entry today.
