The essential global

youth travel industry event

18-21 September 2018, Edinburgh

“I like that so many countries are represented. It is always good to share ideas with people from all over the world. This is THE conference to attend from the youth travel industry”

Joan Carlson | Alott

“No one does business appointments like WYSTC. The 20 minute meeting slots are brilliant and the online scheduling tool makes it very efficient to connect with potential clients ahead of time.”

Nikki Powers |

“WYSTC proved greatly valuable, even as a first time delegate. For those with the budget or time to only attend a limited number of events during the year, this should definitely be on the list”

Barry Rawlings | Edutours Africa

“WYSTC is a must attend event for The Training Partnership Ltd.; it gives us the opportunity to re-connect with other members, meet potential, new partners and raise the profile of our organisation”

Jayne Stroud |The Training Partnership Ltd.
