What’s on at WYSTC today – Friday, 26 September
We can’t believe it’s already the last day of WYSTC 2014 – what an event it’s been so far!
Click here to view our photo gallery and relive some of the events of this week so far.
It may be our last day but we still have plenty in store for you, including lunch with DAS Robin Lerner from the US State Department, plus workshops, seminars and our closing keynote session with Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the world’s greatest living explorer – not to be missed!
And be sure to join us for the glittering Global Youth Travel Awards ceremony at The Mansion House tonight – buses leave from outside the CCD at 19:30 sharp. Please remember to wear your badge.
We have noticed that the message board is filling up – please check it today to see if you have any messages. You can find the message board – sponsored by Isaacs – on the left hand side as you walk into the Trade Hall.
Here’s a message from our sponsor StudentUniverse and a taste of what’s on at WYSTC today:
Free Report: StudentUniverse and Skift present ‘The State of Student Travel’
Student travellers represent a key demographic for travel brand growth, but only if brands commit to understanding the evolving wants and needs of this primarily youth-driven segment.
In this report, the student traveller is defined and their in-destination desires framed, plus key changes already happening industry-wide are defined.
