David Chapman, Director General of WYSE Travel Confederation, said: “With the youth, student and educational travel industry representing 20% of all travel and worth nearly USD 250 billion in 2014, it is important for us to recognise organisations that are raising the bar for the youth travel experience and driving growth and innovation across the different segments of the industry.

“For the fifth year we invite innovative organisations large and small to put themselves forward for one or more of this year’s awards; they could join the ranks of previous winners, which include Emirates Airline, STA Travel and YHA England and Wales.”

The awards will be presented during a gala dinner that will bring WYSTC 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa to a close on Friday, 25 September 2015.
