Join GoAbroad at #WYSTC2015 in Cape Town!


The World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC) is a regular event in the calendar each year, and we’re really looking forward to this year’s edition in Cape Town! WYSTC 2015 is the trade event for the youth, student, and educational travel industry and will be taking place in South Africa’s Mother City from September 22 – 25, 2015.

We attend WYSTC year after year as it provides an unbeatable opportunity to meet with quality international contacts.

“No one does business appointments like WYSTC,” says Nikki Powers, Vice President of Communications at “The 20-minute meeting slots are brilliant and the online scheduling tool makes it very efficient to connect with potential clients ahead of time. Other conferences need to take a page out of their book.”

Another essential aspect of WYSTC is the educational program, where leading speakers provide the latest insight on topics and trends affecting the youth travel industry. Our own Nikki Powers and GoAbroad HQ Manager Tonya Tooley will be presenting two of these sessions.

If you are interested in finding out how your business can benefit from user generated content, join Nikki’s Help Others to Sell You session, where delegates will learn smart strategies for maximizing User Generated Content (UGC) in a world where young people share their opinions and experiences like never before.


Nikki and Tonya will also be teaming up to present the Content marketing: Make it your best friend workshop, where they will provide an overview of what makes content marketing so important, why it’s not going away anytime soon, and how you can make it your new best friend. They’ll offer some key tips and advice to get you started with content marketing.

In short, if you’re a sending and/or receiving organization, buyer and/or seller, and looking to grow your share in the youth, student and educational travel industry sector, look no further than WYSTC 2015!

You will have the opportunity to connect with trading partners from across the world, gain the latest insights and fully immerse yourself in this thriving industry, all while enjoying the beautiful setting of Cape Town!
