Hostelworld Conference 2020

The Hostelworld Conference returns for its 16th consecutive year. 2019 was a HUGE year for us. Not only did we celebrate our 20th anniversary, kicking off in earnest at the annual Dublin conference in January, we also held conferences on four continents for the first time in our 20 year history. After Dublin, we welcomed delegates from across Latin America in Santiago, Chile. In September we caught up with our North and Central American partners in Chicago, USA. And just two weeks later we hosted almost 300 of our Asia Pacific hostel partners in Bali, Indonesia.

We pledged last year to spend more time with our hostel partners and these conferences presented an unrivalled opportunity to do so.
Please join us to find out what Hostelworld has planned for 2020.

See what past attendees say

“Hostelworld is by far the leading travel site for hostels. To attend the Hostelworld Conference is a welcoming chance to keep up with trends, market insights and specially to develop our own hostel business. You always feel welcome at the conference and I always take a few things with me every year. ”

Jep Friis Egefjord
General Manager, Steel House Copenhagen, Denmark

“It’s rare to attend an industry gathering and to immediately feel at home. The Hostelworld Conference offers lessons from around the world, buckets of inspiration, insights into the future of an evolving industry and a bunch of diverse yet like-minded people. And once the important stuff’s done with, Hostelworld really goes out on a limb to host the best party ever! Attending this Conference would be a great investment in your hostel’s future. I would highly recommend it.”
