PATA UK & Ireland launch online travel agent training

PATA UK & Ireland are launching virtual training experiences for travel agents, starting with their first-ever online quiz nights sponsored by Travel Uni.

The interactive quizzes will have forty questions, more than eight rounds all themed on the Asia-Pacific region including questions from Tourism Australia, Hong Kong Tourism Board, Outrigger Resorts, Tourism Western Australia, South Australia Tourism Commission, Banyan Tree and more. Agents can go head-to-head with their colleagues or team up whilst testing their knowledge. There will be some great quiz prizes up for grabs. 

Commenting on the new training initiative Ian Dockreay, committee member and training representative for PATA UK & Ireland, said: “Our goal is keeping Asia-Pacific front of mind with travel agents by using this enforced period of downtime to engage with and inspire them and these quizzes are a great way for agents to continue learning with our members. It's just one of many ideas PATA have in the pipeline with the aim of boosting agents' knowledge and morale before bookings start to pick up again.” 

The first of the online quizzes will take place on May 28, June 4 and June 11, all from 4pm - 5:30pm, hosted via Zoom.

Agents can register here: //zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEpcOmhqj0qHNIjAr3z_vMhDytkdGQTOmCb
