2015 Cape Town – Un-conference

2015 Cape Town – Un-conference

Given that the global WYSTC conference was being held in Cape Town during 2015, instead of a conference, a short “unconference” was held in Cape Town around the time of WYSTC to take advantage of the many members who would be attending the conference. An unconference is different from a conference because participants set the agenda.

The theme of the unconference was “Game Changer”, meant to find a way to showcase youth tourism in SA and is aimed at setting trends and expansion of understanding about trends and how to be on the forefront.

2014 Hogsback – A grassroots celebratory informative networking gathering

The seventh annual SAYTC Youth Travel Conference was held in Hogsback in 2014 – to be able to continue in the spirit of benefiting local communities and expose members to important destinations and attractions. Chosen through a really exciting process, where various Eastern Cape members put in bids to host the conference in their respective areas (their presentations and the voting – by Eastern Cape members – took place in at Elundini Backpakers just outside of Hogsback in September 2013). Away with the Fairies, Terra-Khaya and Elundini Backpackers co-hosted, as they are the three accommodation members in the greater Hogsback area.

2013 Soweto – Eita Soweto

SAYTC conference

The sixth annual SAYTC Youth and Adventure Travel Conference was held in Soweto this year, chosen with SAYTC’s objective in mind to move the AGM to a different province each time – and especially to an area that is not frequented by the masses… off the beaten track, as it were. This helps to eradicate stigmas and stereotypical ideas of that particular setting, as well as showcasing the area’s products. Once again, the conference was a roaring success, with delegates praising the organisation during the program and post-conference for the efficiency with which things were run, the quality and pertinence of the speakers, the chosen location, and the parties (oh, the parties!).
