WYSTC launches a contest to uncover the best fake travel trends

The REAL trends in travel will be discussed and uncovered in Barcelona from 20-23 September at the World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC).

Until then, we’re looking for funny, wacky, interesting (and clean) trends.

What’s a fake travel trend? Here are some examples:

  • “Clown fish population plummets in Fiji as tourists hunt down their own Nemo’s #WYSTC”
  • “Swiss bank tries to entice bored student interns by inviting them to Angry Birds habitat #WYSTC”


We’ll hand out a total of five €300 discounts for WYSTC along the way to random participants*, as well as regular publicity for you and your organisation as we publish the really good ones.

The overall winner will receive a free registration to WYSTC 2012 (value €1600), not to mention fame and glory as they are announced online and at WYSTC in Barcelona.

How it works:

  • Tweet your Fake Travel Trends along with #WYSTCas often as you’d like. Make sure to include #WYSTC so we can find you.
  • Each week, we’ll post the Top 5 on the WYSTC blog
  • We’ll provide the random winners with their discount code along with regular publicity as we publish the latest and greatest.
  • The grand prize winner will be announced at WYSTC 2011.

So put on your fake thinking cap and start Tweeting!

*This rate is for first-time attendees and non-members of WYSE Travel Confederation only. WYSE Travel Confederation members will save an additional €100 off their already discounted rate.
