WYSE Exchange Australia 2018
WYSE Exchange Australia is scheduled to take place in Sydney from May 8-10, 2018. The World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation with the support of the Backpacker Operators Association New South Wales (BOA NSW) are once again planning to bring international buyers to Sydney.
Following the success of the 2016 event, WYSE Travel Confederation and the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW have re-formed a partnership that will see the delivery of a unique trade event aimed at supporting the Australian youth travel trade to develop vital international trade connections.
• Up to 100 stakeholders in the Australian inbound youth travel industry
• 30+ international hosted buyers
• Expert industry speakers and government representatives
• In partnership with Destination NSW
The three-day event programme will include pre-scheduled workshop appointments between 30 leading international buyers and 60 Australian suppliers of backpacker, youth, adventure and education products and experiences, a full day educational conference, buyer familiarisations and social networking events. The WYSE Exchange Australia event will also sit alongside BOA New South Wales annual BOA Ball. Registration for the event will open in mid October.
Central to the week is the WYSE Exchange Australia; the only youth conference of the year held in Australia’s tourism gateway – Sydney is dedicated to Australia’s youth tourism sector.
BOA NSW are thrilled that Sydney is the host city for the WYSE Exchange Australia in 2018. BOA continues to support the ongoing commitment that the WYSE Travel Confederation has made to the Australian youth industry by bringing quality buyers from around the world to our doorstep. BOA NSW had once again a strong presence at WYSTC Montreal and looks forward to supporting this event for many years to come.
The event where delegates come to talk about youth tourism like its second nature. Add to that the next iteration of the WYSE Exchange Australia workshops – the only youth tourism event where international buyers are brought here to meet with Australia’s key youth tourism products. Don’t miss this opportunity.

Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said New South Wales received nearly 1.3 million international youth visitors in the year ending June 2017, an increase of 6.0% on the previous year. He added “We are delighted that the WYSE Exchange Australia will be returning to Sydney next year for another outstanding event and look forward to welcoming more youth visitors to our city and beyond to our rural and regional areas as a result of this travel trade event.”
