WYSE Travel Confederation, the global not-for-profit membership organisation dedicated to promoting and developing opportunities for the youth, student and educational travel industry, has launched its inaugural Influencer Programme for the World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC) this September.
WYSTC, taking place in Lisbon, Portugal, brings together over 600 international sellers, buyers and service providers operating within the youth and student travel industry for three days of trading, industry insights, development and networking.
The WYSTC Influencer Programme will offer a number of travel influencers the opportunity to attend the conference and meet with the decisionmakers of key youth and student travel brands and destinations. The one-to-one business appointments provide time for focussed conversations which could pave the way for partnerships, collaborations and brand sponsorships with leading industry players. In turn, organisations attending WYSTC will be able to put their brand in front of influencers, exhange ideas and build relationships.
‘WYSTC is the meeting place for the top companies working for youth and student travel,’ said David Chapman, Director General of WYSE Travel Confederation. ‘Including an Influencer Programme is a natural evolution for the conference; we know that millennials and Gen Z’rs trust influencers and use social media as a source of inspiration when booking trips, looking for unique experiences or cool places to stay. By inviting travel influencers to attend WYSTC, they not only gain a deeper understanding of our industry, but also attendees have the opportunity to build partnerships with influencers that align with their audience.’
Influencers who meet the criteria will receive complimentary registration to WYSTC, as well as a complimentary four-night stay in a hotel in Lisbon and contribution towards their travel costs. Lunches, coffee breaks, social events and access to the full educational programme is also included.
The World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC) is the leading trade event for the global youth, student and educational travel industry. Since its inception in 1992 as the annual event of WYSE Travel Confederation, youth and student travel professionals have been gathering annually to trade, network and take part in seminars and workshops. The 2023 edition will be held in Lisbon on 12-15 September. For more information, please click here.
