WYSTC 2020 Online: the 48-hour digital event that brings together the youth travel industry


Since its inception in 1992 as the annual event of WYSE Travel Confederation, the World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC) has been the place for the youth, student and educational travel industry to come together to trade, network and take part in insightful educational sessions. 

2020 has shown us just how quickly the world can change. Now more than ever, we as an industry must unite and shape the future of youth travel and tourism, as we move forward into this new era. 

Therefore, we are excited to announce that WYSTC 2020 will be held online. 

WYSTC 2020 Online, 7-9 October, will take place over 48 hours. This unique and engaging digital event will provide youth and student travel professionals with a platform on which to hold over 50 business appointments, across all time zones with key industry buyers globally, attend educational sessions and reconnect with industry peers via social gatherings from wherever you are in the world.

It’s time to prepare for the future. Are you ready to join us?

“For Travello, WYSTC was a fantastic event, as an emerging company, to make new connections and gain invaluable exposure to potential partners. The connections we made in 3 days would have taken us 3 months to gather without the event. It was a great experience for us at Travello App.”
