SYTA Summit is a unique networking hiatus for student group tour operators and key industry partners to connect and recharge during a four-day immersive learning experience. Since 2014, the SYTA Summit has inspired more than 700 participants—95% of whom say they plan to attend again.
WHAT WILL YOU GAIN BY PARTICIPATING IN THE SYTA SUMMIT?
The SYTA Summit leverages peer-engagement to increase connections between great ideas, trends and real-world scenarios, to find solutions that you can use to prepare your business for the future.
Over the course of four days, you’ll be inspired and challenged by a line-up of engaging speakers and successful industry leaders from diverse backgrounds who will offer thought-provoking points of view on new and old issues.
SYTA offers this experience as a respite from your work so that you may sharpen your skills, reflect and rejuvenate.
It’s time to enhance your leadership journey and reinvent your business:
- Navigate emerging trends and adapt to new environments, barriers, and opportunities.
- Accelerate your success with breakthrough ideas and challenge your leadership vision, knowledge and abilities.
- Energize your personal leadership journey through powerful conversations, real-time collaboration and high-level discussions in roundtables with peers.
Cultivate your network of senior executives willing to hold real conversations with you and share their experiences.
WHY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA?
SYTA Tour Operators overwhelmingly asked for Southern California. Many of them have not been back since the Pandemic and their customers are asking for trips out West. Each day attendees will experience education, networking, and opportunties to explore three key destinations from a student perspective. We appreciate the support of Visit Anaheim, Visit Buena Park, LA Tourism and their local partners. The Summit Committee is developing a three day experience that brings back the best of SYTA Summit.
HAWAII POST TOUR
Attendees may extend their Summit experience with a Hawaii Post Tour to Oahu and the Big Island designed by Polynesian Adventures. The Hawaii Post Tour is not included in the Summit registration fee. Attendees may register for both or add the Hawaii Post Tour to their Summit registration. Check out the Summit Schedule for an overview of the Summit week.
