What is STAY WYSE?
STAY WYSE Hostel Conference brings together the leading buyers, sellers and service providers involved in the youth travel accommodation sector for two days of trading, collaboration, learning and networking.
Offering delegates a diverse range of seminars, workshops and panel discussions, the STAY WYSE educational programme is led by the brightest industry leaders and covers the latest trends and developments in youth travel and the hostel sector.
We are delighted to announce a major milestone in the evolution of the Conference. The 2024 edition of STAY WYSE will be relocating from the picturesque Dutch capital to the vibrant and dynamic Werksviertel area in the city of Munich, Germany. The Werksviertel is an industrial, up-and-coming city district with various spaces that encourage creativity, social commitment and sustainability. This strategic decision reflects WYSE Travel Confederation’s commitment to expanding the reach of STAY WYSE to serve the evolving needs of the youth and student accommodation industry.
Join us in Munich on 5-7 February 2024 for a packed programme of pre-scheduled business appointments, discussions and networking with the who’s who of youth travel accommodation.

“I’d like to thank WYSE Travel Confederation for such a great event held in Amsterdam. It is a non-stop show from Wed evening till Fri afternoon that if you manage to get through alive, you’ll return home with business under your arms. It is a “must attend” event in Bracap Global Tours trade shows calendar.”
“STAY WYSE truly exceeded my expectations. It was so well organized and was a great opportunity to meet with industry leaders from all around the world.”
“The STAY WYSE conference is the perfect place for us to meet key players of the youth travel industry and those interested in youth hostels in particular. The scale of the event is such that you have time to meet everyone in formal and social occasions. We never miss it and have been growing our presence there; in fact it is one of the few events we continue to attend.”
“STAY WYSE is one of a few can’t-miss events on my calendar each year. It provides an ideal opportunity to meet new contacts and re-connect with the old–all within a lively, well-run program.”
“When it comes to selling accommodation for millennials and Gen-Zers, STAY WYSE is THE event to attend. The great thing is that the attendees are looking for the product you are offering and you don’t need to spend time explaining what shared accommodation or the concept of a hostel is: we all speak the same language!“
“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.”
