Leaders of the the youth, student and educational travel industry celebrated at the Global Youth Travel Awards 2016.

The winners of the Global Youth Travel Awards 2016 in partnership with Destination Canada and International Experience Canada, were announced in Belgrade, Serbia tonight during the concluding event of this year’s World Youth and Student Travel Conference – WYSTC 2016.
