WYSE Travel Confederation and Destination Canada are partnering this year to host some of the world’s most important buyers and sellers of youth tourism and educational travel products and services at the World Youth and Student Travel Conference, the leading global trade event for the youth, student, and educational travel industry.
The annual event of WYSE Travel Confederation, WYSTC brings the top buying and selling organisations from across the globe and from all aspects of youth and student travel together in a different country each year.
WYSTC 2017 in Montreal, Canada is poised to attract more than 120 buyer delegates. WYSTC buyers are typically retail or wholesale organisations looking to renew acquaintances and source new product and services for popular youth and education sectors, such as internships, work & travel, international volunteer travel, au pair programmes, language travel programmes, activities and tours, international education programmes, and youth-tailored travel accommodation.
In addition to the buyer-seller business appointments that are central to WYSTC, educational workshops, seminars, and panel discussions for travel professionals are scheduled. This year’s programme features industry experts discussing a range of topics, including emerging destinations for work & travel to the rise of digital nomadism to Gen Z attitudes towards international education and youth-driven technology travel trends.
The World Youth and Student Travel Conference is complemented by the Global Youth Travel Awards (GYTA), a gala event where a series of unique awards formally recognising outstanding performers in fifteen fields of global youth travel are granted.
