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!).
