    Julia Lo Bue SaidCEO at Advantage Travel Partnership
  • I had the most incredible day yesterday at the International Women in Travel & Tourism Forum at Google HQ in London. 150 brilliant travel professionals passionate about improving diversity within the travel industry with some incredible stories to tell. The positive energy in the room was testament to Alessandra’s drive and passion to improve the lives of women in the travel industry.
    Toby HorryGroup Brand and Content Director at TUI

Thank you to everyone who came, supported and shared their wisdom in the name of creating a diverse and equal travel industry. We look forward to hosting the forum again in 2023.

  • It’s been brilliant to watch the International Women in Travel & Tourism Forum grow in size, profile and importance over the past three years and given TTG’s mission for Smarter Better Fairer travel I’m delighted to have been involved with both the forum and male allyship programme. There is every opportunity for male allies across the industry to get more involved with next year’s event, and I look forward to TTG once again playing a part in spreading the word.
    Dan PearceCEO at TTG Media
  • If this event was typical of an event showing what women (and some very supportive men) are doing to transform travel, and I believe it was, then I have high hopes for our future. I came disillusioned and left exhilarated.
    Anna PollockFounder at Conscious Travel
  • IWTTF 2022 was the biggest and best yet. Thought provoking, inspiring, and a lot of laughter! The speakers and panellists were a roll call of those who work in the tourism industry and are ambitious about travel and hospitality growing through a real diversity of talent. And passionate about ensuring all who join our workforce feel seen and welcome.
    Fiona AndersonCompany Director at GEC PR
  • IWTTF is truly ground-breaking in its approach to bring together major travel organisations, social enterprises, entrepreneurs and academics to create long lasting and meaningful change for all women to participate and progress in travel and tourism.
