WETM has been one of the most successful events for us to visit in order to meet quality partners in the work experience travel field. Despite the fact that India is a relatively new destination for such programs, we have gained tremendous benefit from attending the event continuously for many years, and we intend to participate regularly in future events also.

Busy and vibrant trading floor. We made contact with new potential partners from across the globe. Guest speakers also a plus. Definately worth the trip!
Judith LierKulturist (Germany)
Kulturist attends WETM-IAC every year and it is one of our year’s many highlights. It’s always important for us to meet our partners personally, to exchange ideas and experiences and of course to learn from the seminars. The IAPA-conference is definitely something we recommend to other au-pair-agencies!
Joanna BurnetVisitOz (Australia)
I am glad you decided to have booths this year - it makes such a difference to people like us. Rushing from table to table is more than exhausting, and having a booth and to be able to set ourselves up as we wish is a great innovation.
Paola PalombinoDirector at TERMOLI AU PAIR (Italy)
Attending to IAPA Conference is a very important thing to me. There are many colleagues who contact me from all over the world who ask to meet me in person in Budapest. Thank you again for this opportunity.
Dora SzamadoInter Au Pair Kft (Hungary)
It was one of my first conferences and as far as I'm concerned I will definitely attend the next one, because it helped me to meeting with the partners face to face and find new potential partners in new countries.
