The International Women in Travel and Tourism Forum first came together as a result of a panel discussion in late 2018, moderated by Women in Travel cic and attended by industry leaders Carnival UK, Visit Iceland/Promote Iceland, Intrepid Group and by the First Lady of Iceland, Eliza Reid.
The panel recognised the need for an international and inclusive platform for women and like-minded men to come together to discuss ways to accelerate diversity and inclusion in the travel and tourism sector.
