Why should I as a blogger attend the STAY WYSE Conference?

The key benefits of attendance are:

  1. Ability to schedule business appointments with hostels that can buy your blogging services
  2. Educational sessions on the latest trends and developments where hostels and their young consumers are concerned.
  3. Network with your fellow, bloggers, hostel operators, buyers and suppliers.
  4. Visit new and existing hostels in Amsterdam.

Business Appointments

As a blogger you can arrange to meet with a variety of different businesses, but in particular with hostel operators. These meetings are pre-scheduled so you will get that one-on-one time that you are after.
