In May 2022 we delivered our inaugural Youth & Student Travel Summit

Held as an in person event, attendees had access to a full day of content and B2B engagement to help you to drive forward business recovery and reconnect with people across our vibrant industry. The event far exceeded expectations, with 100% of all delegates rating the event good or excellent!



The summit delivered a series of keynotes, panel discussions and networking opportunities for businesses interested in youth, student & educational travel

I thoroughly enjoyed the event and it was well worth the trip from Manchester to London and the time invested into attending. The content of the sessions was brilliant and gave me a great insight into the challenges around travel for young people today and what young people’s  expectations are from a venue or destination abroad. I made some great connections too. Overall it was a really great event. Gemma Hill

The right people, the right information and the opportunity to have your questions answered. The summit was an incredibly valuable but also enjoyable day. Georgia Pearson, International Business Development
