WETM-IAC Malta 2020 to be postponed

After long and careful consideration by the Boards of WYSE Travel Confederation and IAPA which was immediately then followed by the travel bans announced by Malta and the US, it has become inevitable that WETM-IAC Malta 2020 must be postponed.

Throughout this process, we have been working with the Maltese hotel, and the other venues involved with the conference, to make sure that we are doing all we can to keep our delegates safe and protected whilst endeavouring to keep the youth and student industry on the move! But with companies imposing travel bans and there being a concern amongst others about being able to return to their own countries after attending a conference, a postponement seems to be the sensible option.

All delegates booked at this year’s WETM-IAC conference will be automatically transferred to WYSTC in Lisbon, 24-25 September 2020, where there will be a WETM-IAC programme in parallel with the WYSTC programme. Full details of the revised conference schedule will be sent out to you in due course. For full details of the postponement and of WETM@WYSTC, please visit our WETM- IAC FAQs page.

WETM-IAC 2021 will be held in Malta as well, this is so that we can rebook the same venues and hotel thus minimizing cancellation fees so you will still be able to visit this beautiful Mediterranean island next year.

We are, of course, disappointed that WETM-IAC can’t go ahead this year, but the global events of COVID-19 are forcing these changes.

We hope that the situation will have eased by the summer and that we can welcome you all to WYSTC in Lisbon.
