The World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC) is the essential global youth travel industry event for organisations that serve today’s young people who travel to study, work and grow. It provides a singular opportunity for attendees to pursue innovative partnerships, develop creative marketing and distribution channels and access new markets. If your organisation offers products or services to teenagers or travellers in their teens, 20s and early 30s – or if you want to tap into this lucrative market worth US$183 billion per year – then WYSTC is the one event that you can’t afford to miss.

WYSTC is unique in that it furnishes you with the connections and the knowledge to help shape the future of your business. It is the only event of its kind that brings together people who are passionate about creating better opportunities for the young travellers of today and tomorrow. Now in its 23nd year, WYSTC is the annual event of WYSE Travel Confederation, which is endorsed by the UNWTO and UNESCO.

Each year buyers and suppliers from around the world gather at WYSTC to network with fellow decision makers, take advantage of new market opportunities, learn from industry experts and discuss critical government policy issues.

Join us in Dublin! 

Since its inception in 1992, WYSTC has travelled to a different destination each year. This gives WYSTC the benefit of not only having a global impact on the youth and student travel community, but also means that attendees get first-hand experience of the topics and trends affecting youth and student travel within that host country and/or region. In 2014, WYSTC will take place in Dublin, Ireland.
