STAY WYSE launches 5th annual survey
Thursday 2, June 2011
STAY WYSE, the global trade association for the youth travel accommodation industry, has just launched its fifth annual survey reviewing the global business operations of the Youth Travel Accommodation Sector.
As part of the World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation, STAY WYSE’s mission is to provide safe, affordable and clean accommodation within a communal atmosphere that encourages youth mobility and cultural understanding.
The study is commissioned by the Association in order to establish crucial business metrics and identify trends in this dynamic sector. STAY WYSE (Safe Travel Accommodation for Youth) has been improving upon the quality each year – this year’s edition provides personal data comparisons from each business. As a result, members of STAY WYSE receive significantly more data comparisons and can optimise their business offerings accordingly.
This year's Youth Travel Accommodation Industry Benchmark Survey looks at average bed rates, occupancy rates, marketing activities, environmental sustainability initiatives, booking trends and sources of revenue during 2010. The full version of this report is available exclusively to members of STAY WYSE.
“The information generated by the survey is highly relevant and important for businesses in the accommodation sector. We can readily show members best practices, help develop their business, and of course help them make more money,” according to Laura Daly, Association Manager for STAY WYSE.
This year’s survey has also generated tremendous interest from thirteen large corporate sponsors, a testament to the credibility of the survey itself and the data that it generates for businesses within the sector.

With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
