STAY WYSE Hostel Conference introduces Influencer Programme to enhance distribution opportunities
WYSE News | December 21, 2023


WYSE Travel Confederation announces the launch of the STAY WYSE 2024 Influencer Programme.

The STAY WYSE Hostel Conference, 5-7 February 2024 in Munich, Germany, welcomes organisations involved in the youth travel accommodation sector for two days of trading, collaboration, learning and networking.

The Influencer Programme, new to 2024, will offer STAY WYSE attendees direct access to international influencers, allowing them to engage with influential voices in the travel and hospitality industry.

The Influencer Programme comes at a time when the travel industry is experiencing a paradigm shift, with a growing emphasis on immersive and authentic experiences. Influencers play a pivotal role in shaping perceptions and providing education and resources on key topics pertinent to the industry, such as sustainability, LGBTQ+ travellers and technologies. The STAY WYSE Conference provides an ideal setting for bi-lateral conversations and knowledge sharing between delegates and influencers.

“Following the success of the World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC) Influencer Programme in September 2023, we are confident that introducing a similar initiative to STAY WYSE will not only provide valuable insights and collaboration opportunities for our delegates, but also amplify the voices of those who are passionate about making travel accessible to all,” said David Chapman, Director General at WYSE Travel Confederation.

Selected influencers will benefit from access to some of the world’s leading hostels and travel brands, and across two days will have the opportunity to schedule one-to-one business appointments and attend educational sessions, networking lunches and coffee breaks and evening social events.

Influencers interested in joining the STAY WYSE Influencer Programme are invited to apply here.
