Are you attending Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, next week?
If so, do not miss the first ever #WomeninTravel meetup for debates, networking and inspiration!
Women in Travel was launched two years ago at World Travel Market in London as a platform for women to discuss industry relevant topics, learn and network with each other.
Now at Arabian Travel Market for the first time, The ATM Women in Travel Meet Up 2016 on will provide an exceptional opportunity to hear from some of the most passionate and knowledgeable women in travel.
The event will be broken down into two parts. From 4.30 – 5.00 the Women in Travel panel debate will take place, where discussion will focus on the increasing role played by women both as travel consumers and as travel professionals, the opportunities existing for women in tourism employment, or as travel entrepreneurs, and the opportunities for business in tapping into this pool of talent.
In addition the panel will also make reference to women as travelers, and how regional destinations may attract the increasing numbers of women to the area on business and leisure.
The second part of the event, the Women in Travel networking reception, will take place from 5.00 - 6.00. This gathering will provide an opportunity to stay on for refreshments and informally continue the discussion with both speakers and other attendees.
“Women and gender related issues are an increasingly discussed topic in the Middle East and North Africa region,” explains seminar moderator Alessandra Alonso. “Women in the area are clearly ready for employment, business opportunities and personal professional development – and tourism is an ideal channel as it is economically vital for the region.
“The Women in Travel meet-up at ATM 2016 will provide the ideal platform for this discussion and help women professionals, entrepreneurs and business identify opportunities as well as possible challenges in this area.”
