PATA CEO Challenge 2015 Joins Forces with TripAdvisor to Offer US$1 Million in Advertising Campaigns for Two Winning Destinations

PATACEOChallenge2015_Logo

BANGKOK, May 27, 2015 — The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is looking for new and emerging destinations to take part in the PATA CEO Challenge 2015 for an opportunity to win one of two advertising campaigns on TripAdvisor, each worth up to US$500,000. The two winning entries will work with TripAdvisor to develop and create digital marketing campaigns to showcase their destinations to TripAdvisor’s global audience, each valued at US$500,000. In addition, the winners will be presented the PATA CEO Challenge 2015 Top Destination Award during an award ceremony at the PATA Aligned Advocacy Dinner on November 2, 2015 in London, United Kingdom, prior to World Travel Market 2015.

The PATA CEO Challenge 2015 embraces the uniqueness and diversity of heritages, cultures, customs and natural beauty of the world’s diverse destinations. It aims to promote and enhance the number of visitors to emerging destinations (regions, states, or provinces, and second-tier/third tier cities), and enhances tourism development in the most sustainable manner.

Mario Hardy, CEO, PATA, said, “There are hundreds and thousands of destinations that are known, visited and experienced by world travellers. However, there are even more destinations that are ready to be discovered and deserve to be recognised for their authenticity and beauty. PATA, through the PATA CEO Challenge 2015, is honoured to highlight these new and emerging destinations.“

Sarah Mathews, Head of Destination Marketing APAC, TripAdvisor, stated, “As the world’s largest travel site with 340 million unique monthly visitors, TripAdvisor is committed to working with destinations across the world to showcase their story to travellers from around the world.  Working with PATA on the PATA CEO Challenge 2015, our aim is to support destinations who have a great tourism offering and the desire to present their story.”

The PATA CEO Challenge 2015 is open to all regions, states, provinces, second-tier cities, and third-tier cities worldwide, while countries and first-tier cities are not qualified to participate. Both PATA member and non-member organisations and destinations are welcomed to submit entries.

Entries must show how their marketing campaign is contributing to the sustainable growth of tourism to the destination and economic empowerment to the local communities.

Two awards will be presented during the PATA Aligned Advocacy Dinner on Sunday, November 2, 2015, prior to World Travel Market 2015 in London, United Kingdom, in the categories of States, Regions and Provinces; and Second-tier/Third-tier Cities. The dinner will be attended by hundreds of industry professionals and guests.

Ms Mathews said, “Our global team will work with the two winners to develop a great digital campaign. It is our aim to support each destination with our knowledge on how travellers are inspired, research and book online and therefore to help the destination to paint their digital story to our global audience.”

Mr Hardy added,  “A country’s beauty is not defined by one famous location, but by its people, culture, heritage and diversity. The PATA CEO Challenge 2015 will not only help new destinations showcase their unique offerings but enable today’s travellers to explore new frontiers and discover new experiences. Furthermore, the dispersment of tourists to these new destinations will also help spread the economic benefit of travel and tourism to the people in these communities.”

Visakha Bucha Pilgrimage to Doi Suthep

Local Buddhists, and others seeking to make merit, gather in Chiang Mai on the night of Visakha Bucha and walk together from Wat Mou Boon, near the Kruba Srivichai Monument, to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. (The temple is commonly known as “Doi Suthep” although the shorter name in fact refers to the mountain.) Later in the evening, visitors can witness a ceremony in which holy Buddha images are sprinkled with sacred waters. From the temple’s location high on the mountain, awesome views of Chiang Mai can be seen below. If the hike proves too demanding, there are also songtaew taxis that drive up from the city.

Asia Pacific Airlines Traffic Results – April 2015

aapa

 

 

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 27 May 2015 – Preliminary traffic figures for the month of April released today by the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) showed encouraging growth in both international passenger and air cargo markets.
A combined total of 23.0 million international passengers were carried by Asia Pacific airlines in April, a strong 9.6% increase compared to the same month last year, supported  by robust leisure travel markets during the Easter holidays. Demand as measured in revenue passenger kilometres (RPK) grew by 8.2%, surpassing the 5.7% expansion in available seat capacity to result in a 1.8 percentage point increase in the average international passenger load factor to 78.1% for the month.

Air cargo markets continued to grow, in spite of April being a seasonally subdued month. In freight tonne kilometre (FTK) terms, demand was 3.7% higher than the same month last year. Offered freight capacity expanded by 4.7%, leading to a slight 0.6 percentage point decline in the average international freight load factor to 63.5% in April.

Commenting on the results, Mr. Andrew Herdman, AAPA Director General said, “The growth in demand for air travel has maintained strong momentum, with the region’s carriers registering a solid 9.4% increase in the number of international passengers carried to a cumulative total of 90.7 million for the first four months of 2015. Correspondingly, air cargo markets recorded a 7.2% increase for the same period, partly boosted by increased demand for air shipments due to the backlog of goods at US seaports.”

Looking ahead, Mr. Herdman added, “The positive trend in air passenger demand is expected to continue, consistent with improvements in consumer and business confidence and projected growth in the global economy. The outlook for air freight demand in the coming months is more uncertain, given this is a seasonally weaker period, and will depend on the pace of recovery in world trade being maintained.”

Premier Launches New Tourism Campaign for Outback Queensland

Tourism and Events Queensland

27 May 2015 – Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has unveiled a new tourism campaign to entice South East Queenslanders to Queensland’s Outback to help boost districts struggling through drought.

The Premier launched the new brand Live Australia’s Story with Tourism Minister Kate Jones in Winton today.

Ms Palaszczuk said it was the first new Outback Queensland tourism branding in a decade.

Live Australia’s Story captures the essence of a visit to Outback Queensland – where the land and people tell Australia’s story,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“We know Outback Queenslanders have been doing it tough, that’s why we want to do all we can to help boost the economy.

“This campaign will show visitors that Outback Queensland is where you can feel connected to the Australian story and portrays the rich heritage, vast landscapes and the characters that define the destination.

“The goal is to inspire more people to travel and spend time and money in the region which will assist in economic growth and support local jobs,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

Tourism Minister Kate Jones said Live Australia’s Story would target South East Queensland residents across print, outdoor, radio and online advertising and on social media, building awareness for the destination’s visitor experiences.

“We want people to be mesmerised and inspired by Outback Queensland, where the land and the people tell Australia’s Story,” Ms Jones said.

Minister Jones said the new brand platform formed part of a $500,000 marketing campaign for Outback Queensland, developed by Tourism and Events Queensland in partnership with the Outback Queensland Tourism Association and in consultation with industry.

“Marketing activity has been designed to extend the length of the traditional Outback travel season and motivate travel into 2016,” Ms Jones said.

“Outback Queensland has so many stories to tell and share about the history of our country, the spirit of our nation and what it means to be Australian.

“I encourage Queenslanders to discover their Australian story and support the local tourism industry and local economy by visiting the destination.”

Peter Homan, General Manager of the Outback Queensland Tourism Association, said the new tourism brand would promote unforgettable destinations.

“This is an exciting new chapter for the Outback Queensland tourism industry,” Mr Homan said.

“Outback Queensland offers a range of unforgettable visitor experiences from spotting Australian wildlife, to sleeping under the stars, dinosaur discoveries, kayaking in the stunning gorges to learning about Australia’s heritage or attending an Outback event.

“I invite everyone to get out here, experience it for themselves and Live Australia’s Story in Outback Queensland.

“As part of the new campaign, a series of visitor itineraries will be published on – www.outbackqueensland.com.au.

“Local operators will have access to a series of stunning new images and footage developed by Tourism and Events Queensland to support their business and local tourism industry.”

Accessible via the Qantas App, PressReader will enable Qantas customers to download magazines and newspapers in more than 60 languages, from a huge range of local, regional and international titles across 100 countries, prior to their flight.

Qantas Group Executive, Brand, Marketing and Corporate Affairs Olivia Wirth said the partnership with PressReader was part of Qantas’ ongoing investment in constantly improving the customer experience.

“Many people use flights as a way to catch up with their reading, so this new service opens up a huge library of titles for people to choose from before they take off,” she said.

“We built PressReader into the existing Qantas app to make it easier for customers to manage all parts of the journey through the one application.”

The introduction of digital magazines and newspapers to Qantas’ suite of entertainment offerings also forms part of the airline’s ongoing commitment to improving its environmental credentials.

All customers have to do to enjoy the complimentary access to PressReader’s wide selection of publications is:

  1. Tap the ‘Download Newspapers and Magazines’ tile on their Qantas Airways app trip timeline.
  2. Open the PressReader application.
  3. Browse the selection and download their favourite titles ahead of their flight (this can be from home, on the go, in the office, at a hotel or at the airport).

 

The “Download Newspapers and Magazines” tile will appear on the timeline from 24 hours prior to departure. Once this appears, customers have 12 hours of unlimited access to download content.

Once downloaded to their iOS or Android device, it will be stored and ready to read any time.

Igor Smirnoff, Chief Commercial Officer at PressReader, said the company was thrilled to welcome Qantas into the PressReader family of partners.

“We’re experiencing tremendous growth, in recent months, we’ve added over 1,000 publications to our ever-expanding offering. PressReader is fast becoming a must have travel companion, so we hope Qantas customers enjoy using it.”

Qantas also recently implemented a new and improved inflight entertainment program giving customers more choice and variety with more regular and in-depth news coverage. This included doubling the number of new-release blockbusters and adding more virtual box sets of popular TV series.

Thailand Invites Cyclists and Travelers to Join Tour of I-san Loei Classic

TAT0527

Bangkok, 27 May 2015 – The highlands of religion, philosophy, folk wisdom and tradition of Loei province in Northeastern Thailand is set to welcome some 300 cyclists from Thailand and around the world during the “Tour of I-san Loei Classic” on 7 June, 2015.

Organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) in cooperation with the Loei Provincial Administration, Life and Living Bikenet, and Nok Air, the event is aimed at promoting green tourism in the northeastern region, or I-san, under the Tour of I-san Classic tourism promotion project.

Mrs. Somradee Chanchai, TAT’s Executive Director of the Northeastern Region said, “The Loei Classic is one of the five routes being planned under the Tour of I-san cycling tour campaign. Four other races will be organised in Bueng Kan, Nong Khai, Nakhon Phanom and Ubon Ratchathani. Each will feature a scenic and unique cycling course that highlights key attractions in the respective province. The ultimate goal is to entice more tourists and travelers to visit I-san, where an amazing diversity of traditional cultures await discovery.”

The 70-km Tour of I-san Loei Classic is open to everyone from professionals to amateur cyclists under two categories – A for road bicycle and B for mountain bicycle. The winners in both categories will be awarded with champion trophies and cycling jerseys. Applications for the race is open from now until 31 May, 2015, and for 300 cyclists only.

All race categories will start and finish at the Phu Pa Pao aka Loei’s Fuji Mountain, in Phu Luang district. The cycling route features a scenic, loop course that travels past lush nature and through cultural and ethnic communities of Loei, including Suan Hin Pha Ngam, a strangely beautiful limestone garden aged around 230-280 million years – similar to the stone garden in China’s Kunming; Phu Pa Pao and Phu Ho; and the Thai Dam community, known for the sacred Phi Ta Khon and Phi Kon Nam rituals.

Mrs. Somradee said, “The motto of Loei is ‘City of the Sea of Mountains, Coldest Place in Siam, with Beautiful Flowers of Three Seasons’ but there is a lot more to this mountainous province than meets the eye. Being the highlands of religion, philosophy, folk wisdom and traditions, Loei is home to diverse ethnic communities, and boasts something to see around every corner, from mist-shrouded mountains to historic sites, temples and local villages, all rich with cultures and traditions.”

Loei can be reached via road (car, bus and rail) or air transportation. The province is located about 550 km northeast of Bangkok or about an hour by air, or seven hours by car. Nok Air and Thai AirAsia currently operate daily flights between Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport and Loei.

Portable Hotel Rooms Changing the Hospitality Game

tourexpilogo_400x400

26 May 2015 –  A hotel room you can take with you anywhere you go sounds like traveller’s dream and a hotelier’s nightmare. Dutch-based Flexotels is changing the way travellers spend on accommodation during sporting events and music festivals.

Flexotels, which sports the tagline “Short stay solutions”, developed its ‘rooms’ concept (they’re more like cabins) five years ago.

 

“I was working in the real estate business developing hotels and leisure centres and I saw a market for temporary hotel rooms at sports and music events,” said Flexotels CEO Hubert con Heyden. “I did two feasibility studies for clients and put the idea under my pillow. I eventually got it out and looked at how to finance it.”

The standard rooms contain two twin size box-spring beds, two chairs and a table, storage space, electricity, linen and towels.

Flexotels’ collapsible hotel rooms, deployed at festivals and events all over the world, have now been extended to include a sanitary room.

The new brand, Comfotels, come with the standard fold-out room of a Flexotel, but with the addition of a shower, hot water heater, toilet and sink.

Both businesses and consumers can benefit from the product – consumers can book the pods directly at events such as music festivals (Volt Festival in Hungary is the next event on the company’s website. The rooms retail for about 130 Euros (US $ 144).

Businesses can also book to have a certain number of rooms made available, which they offer to customers. Flexotels are delivered by truck and 10-20 can be delivered at a time, depending upon the type.

Heyden said that he is also seeing a big growth in the ‘otels being used for business to business events.

The ‘otels’ have already been a great success at popular music festivals Glastonbury, in the UK and Millstreet in Ireland. Sporting events such as 24 hour Le Mans, the London Olympics and tennis matches are also benefitting from the pop-up hotels.

Heyden said: “Flexotels fulfil three important demands that people at events share; they want to have a good night’s sleep, a lock on the door so that they can leave their things and they want to walk to the event site.”

In some situations, the hotel itself offers the rooms – which seems most appealing to countryside hotels who have the land to offer a “campsite experience”, or city hotels appealing to Millennials by sponsoring events (think Citizen M or Yotel).

One hotel following this model is the Overste Hof Hotel & Restaurant in the Netherlands, which hosts the Pink Pop Festival. Guests have the option to stay at the hotel and enjoy bed and breakfast (and a little peace and quiet), or to stay closer to the action in Flexotels – both can be booked directly through the hotel’s channels.

“The people who use our rooms like being at the location of the event they are attending,” said Heyden. “They don’t need to use their cars or the train to get there from their hotels.

“At Le Mans, for instance, the rooms are near the circuit so people are right in the middle of the experience they have paid for.

“With our rooms, event organisers can get 300 people right in the heart of the event who don’t have to travel to hotels that might be miles away.”
