Awards Ceremony

David Chapman, Director General of WYSE Travel Confederation, says:

“Despite the unsettled nature of travel as a whole, with terrorism and political unrest halting tourism in some areas, youth travel remains resilient. Not only do young people continue to travel during difficult times, but the agencies and organisations helping them also continue to offer new products and services that meet the needs of young travellers.

WYSE Travel Confederation invites all youth and student travel organisations to enter their best products, services, partnerships and experiences so that our global community can recognise the best of innovation and advancement in youth travel this year. Good luck!”
