PATA UK has launched its events calendar for 2013 including PATA Summer Parties in London on 17th July and in Glasgow on 21st August, plus the popular Taste of PATA event at London Borough Market on 10th September, and a PATA Luxury Exchange & Taste of PATA event in Manchester on 11th September, as well as Christmas Parties in Bristol on 11th December and in London on 19th December.
