Information for buyers

The STAY WYSE Conference facilitates business between youth travel accommodation providers and buyers. Typically, buyer organisations are traditional and online travel agents, FIT and group tour operators or wholesalers.

The STAY WYSE Conference Buyer Programme offers selected buyer organisations special participation terms.

If you would like your organisation to be considered for the STAY WYSE Conference Buyer Programme, please complete the STAY WYSE Conference buyer application form. Once we are in receipt of references, applications are reviewed against STAY WYSE Conference buyer selection criteria:

  • Whether or not the applicant organisation buys youth travel accommodation
  • Scale of current business
  • Potential for future business
  • Outbound region(s)
  • Priority destination(s)
  • Feedback from references
  • Previous STAY WYSE Conference attendance
  • Previous STAY WYSE Conference participation outcomes (business appointment statistics and provider feedback)
  • WYSE Travel Confederation membership

Note that there are limited buyer places available and as such we operate on a first come, first served basis.
