Tourism Australia sponsors new industry conference targeting youth

WYSE Travel Confederation is pleased to announce Tourism Australia as the sponsor of the 2018 WYSE Exchange Australia Youth Tourism Conference at the Ovolo Woolloomooloo Hotel in Sydney.

The full-day, national educational conference will showcase a range of speakers, leaders and innovators who will come together and share insights, best practices, and identify opportunities to grow Australia’s inbound youth travel industry.

WYSE Travel Confederation Director General David Chapman said:  “We are delighted that Tourism Australia is sponsoring the third edition of the WYSE Exchange Youth Tourism Conference. The conference will serve as an important educational platform for Australia’s inbound youth travel industry and the WYSE Travel Confederation team is currently working with a local advisory committee to ensure an interesting, relevant and valuable programme is delivered in May.”

Tourism Australia’s industry relations manager for Youth, Kristy Carstairs, said: “The Australia Youth Tourism Conference is an important forum to share ideas. We’re proud to support the conference and look forward to using this forum with the industry to find inspiring ways to encourage more young travellers and working holiday makers to visit Australia.”

The Australia Youth Tourism Conference is part of a three-day trade event that will include business-to-business appointments with international buyers, social networking events, and sits alongside the annual BOA NSW Ball.
