International buyers arrived in Sydney to trade with Australia’s top youth and backpacker travel operators
Representatives from STA Travel, StudentUniverse, Kilroy, GoXplore, Topdeck, TourRadar, BUNAC and many more flew into Sydney over the last few days to join Australia’s top youth and backpacker travel operators.
“The working holiday visa market into Australia continues to grow for STA Travel. With the WYSE Exchange event covering this, and all other sectors of the youth / adventure travel industry, we see our attendance at this year’s WYSE Exchange Australia in Sydney as an essential part of our contracting calendar” said Thea Wilson, STA Travel Contracting Manager, Australasia.
Two days of B2B workshop appointments have just drawn to a close, pairing international buyers with leading Australian operators involved in the inbound youth and backpacker travel market, a collective effort to showcase the unique and diverse experiences Australia has to offer young people from around the world.
A series of familiarisation trips have been organised for the international buyers courtesy of Destination NSW, highlighting all that Sydney and Regional NSW has to offer. From the heart of the city, to the coastal regions of NSW with lush river valleys and stunning beaches, to the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains – international buyers will be given VIP treatment to discover both the popular and undiscovered locations that appeal to international youth travellers.
Following the WYSE Exchange Australia Youth Travel Conference on Friday, the highly anticipated annual BOA Ball will be held at Sydney’s iconic Taronga Zoo, exclusively hosted and delivered by BOA NSW.
