Events & Networking

Women in Tourism Events and Networking are an important part of our activity and development – WIT members receive discounted rates on events.

Our events normally have industry related themes, such as skills and recruitment, or address challenges for the tourism sector where we aim to implement change. Women in Tourism aims to make its events accessible in terms of cost for as wide an audience as possible, including young people and students.
