Youth and Student Travel Conference

World Youth and Student Travel Conference 2021 is in October

The World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC), now in its 30th year, is the flagship event of WYSE Travel Confederation and a key annual fixture in the calendars of buyers and sellers operating in the global youth, student and educational travel industry.

Due to ongoing uncertainty around travel restrictions, WYSTC 2021 will be run as a hybrid conference, with both in-person and virtual possibilities for participation. The in-person component will take place in Lisbon, Portugal.

To ensure the safe delivery of the in-person event experience, WYSE Travel Confederation is keeping abreast of updates to regulations in Portugal and will follow the advice of the local health authorities.

“Turismo de Portugal is extremely proud to welcome the World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC),” said Luís Araújo, President of Turismo de Portugal.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Portuguese tourism industry has worked tirelessly to implement protocols, such as the Clean & Safe seal, to ensure the safety of our visitors and residents, and we stand by our mission of providing the best tourism experience with the highest safety standards.”

“We are leaders in the education and training of tourism human resources, and therefore extremely close to youth, student and educational issues,” Luís added.
