Business Events Sydney has secured next year’s World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC), which will be held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in Sep 2013.

The 2013 location was just announced at this year’s WYSTC in San Diego.

The annual event attracts around 800 delegates from more than 80 countries around the globe, connecting organisations which provide travel products or services to teenagers and travellers in their 20s and early 30s – a market estimated as being worth $157 billion a year.

WYSTC the key international trade event for the youth travel industry, and was last held in Australia in 2006 when it took place in Melbourne.

Business Events Sydney ceo Lyn Lewis-Smith said that as well as an economic impact of $5.4 million the conference will “also provide opportunities for valuable international networking and professional development”.

Australian Tourism Export Council md Felicia Mariani said the conference would give Australian suppliers great exposure in the international marketplace, while Tourism Australia md Andrew McEvoy said WYSTC would help sell the message “that Australia is a wonderful destination full of unique experiences, adventure and a place to explore fully”.
