SYTA Conference in Washington, DC

Thank you to the more than 50 members and partners who joined Destination DC to host the Student & Youth Travel Association Annual Conference in Washington, DC Aug. 26–30, 2022

As a top student and travel destination, Washington, DC has long hosted young travelers from all over the world to experience everything that our nation’s capital has to offer.


In August 2022 we welcomed 1,000+ industry leaders and decision-makers to celebrate the long-awaited return of student travel.


We excitedly hosted sightseeing tours of Washington, DC and showcased our sponsors to 800+ attendees of the opening night welcome event: The Capital of Explorations: A Night Celebrating 25 Years of Student & Youth Travel hosted at the Smithsonian American Art Museum Kogod Courtyard in conjunction with Virginia Tourism Corporation and Maryland Office of Tourism Development.
