“I need to admit that STAY WYSE Amsterdam was so far the best business conference I ever participated at (10+). The quality and the organization was so great that I would honestly recommend it to all partners in the business. We brought ca. 10 direct leads back home which is an amazing success.”

Klara Vostinakova

Partnership Manager, Bohemian Hostels & Hotels

“One of the best travel events to meet specific travel industry vendors and suppliers. A very well organized event, easy to schedule and monitor appointments. All the arrangements were fabulous from the initial coordination, networking party, meetings, fam trips, education sessions, etc.”

Renil Hamza

“It was my first time at STAY WYSE and didnt know what to expect, but I was delighted with everything. It was a great conference and definitely the best I attended in the last year. I will definitely come again.”
