YHA’s Backpacker & Adventure Tourism Industry Forum

Bookings will open soon for representatives to attend a Backpacker & Adventure Tourism Industry Forum in Byron Bay, taking place on the morning of 2 May 2018. The forum is hosted by YHA, and will bring over 110 delegates from the backpacking industry together to consider trends and topics in the sector. The half-day forum will hear presentations from leading speakers, including forecasts of where the industry is heading. There will also be networking opportunities to engage with a range of industry professionals.

Each year, YHA holds a National Conference that has become the largest learning and development event for the backpacker industry in Australia. Additionally, the doors will also be open to non-YHA participants for a plenary session, inviting delegates from the broader backpacker industry to attend a part of the event.

Delegates will have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders and to network with representatives from YHA’s network of 80 hostels in Australia. Additionally, delegates will be able to attend the official opening of the new 100-bed extension at Byron Bay YHA, on the evening of 1 May 2018.

Participation in the forum by backpacker industry representatives is by booking in advance for a fee of $50 (includes attendance, lunch, presentation notes and gift bag). For more information about attendance or to express interest, please contact: Jessica Jepson, Operations Assistant, or 07 3236 4999

YHA is a not-for-profit membership based organisation, and part of the world’s largest budget accommodation network, Hostelling International, with over 4,000 properties in 60 countries.
