Global Youth Travel Awards

230x160_WYSETC-GlobalYouthTravelAward-LogoWhiteOuline-v5CS5-2016The Global Youth Travel Awards (GYTAs) formally recognise outstanding performers in 14 fields of international youth travel and reward WYSE Travel Confederation members and other stakeholders in the youth, student and educational travel industry who make an outstanding contribution to our industry.

The GYTAs began at the World Youth Student and Educational Conference (WYSTC) 2011 in Barcelona with a focus on bringing to light the great experiences being provided by members of our community. Since then, the awards have evolved to include members of the wider youth travel industry and a greater number of awards.
