Bangkok:Travel and tourism industry organisations and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to successfully promote the travel industry in Asia Pacific can submit entries to the 2014 Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Gold Awards until April 30.

According to PATA statement , a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) category has been introduced this year to reflect PATA's commitment to responsible tourism.

Winning entries in all categories of the PATA Gold Awards will be showcased at the PATA Travel Mart, in September in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Sponsored by the Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) for the past 19 years, the PATA Gold Awards set industry standards for excellence and innovation. Ms Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, Director of MGTO, said: “It is with great honour that for the 19th consecutive year the Macau Government Tourist Office is once again rendering its support to this meaningful programme of the PATA Gold Awards. We encourage tourism professionals and entities from around the region to come forward and share your best practices, so that your good experiences can inspire the rest of us and have a greater impact on the challenge we shoulder together in order to build a sound and sustainable industry in the Pacific Asia region.”

 Martin J Craigs, PATA CEO, added: “The Gold Awards have long been acclaimed for their marketing excellence. By introducing a CSR category the Awards will help boost the kind of values that are increasingly important in all aspects of the Asia Pacific visitor economy.”

The PATA Gold Awards are open to PATA members and non-members. Winners will be entitled to leverage the prestigious PATA Gold Awards 2014 logo on their websites and collaterals. The highlights of the winning entries will be on display at the PATA Travel Mart for delegates to enjoy. Award recipients will be featured in the winners' showcase booklet.
