Meet the STAY WYSE speakers at WTM London 2015

28 October 2015
28 Oct 2015 -

Join WYSE Travel Confederation Director General David Chapman as he moderates the STAY WYSE session at this year’s WTM London.

Session: Hostels: Dirty word or revolutionary lodging segment?
Dates: Wednesday, 4 November 2015
Venue: South Gallery 13 – 14
Time: 14:00 – 15:00

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve read about explosive growth in hostels and other forms of ‘youth-inspired’ travel accommodation in the last few years.

Historically cheap and basic lodging for youth and student travellers, today hostels boast loyal traveller followings on par with those of international hotel chains thanks to the sector’s ability to answer to the needs and wants of its core target group: the millennial generation.

The hostel sector’s ability to answer to the needs and wants of the millennial generation has been noticed by the big hotel chains, but how can hostels hold their ground while also improving business? WYSE Travel Confederation and STAY WYSE present key findings from this year’s STAY WYSE Flash Survey Series and discuss with a panel of hostel business experts what lies ahead for hostels in 2016.
