Start getting your sh*t together: the Women in Travel Awards are super close!

Lauren Croft

We don’t want to alarm you, but it’s June. Shocking, we know.

But aside from the hateful chill that is the mild Aussie winter, June is known for something else this year.

The Women in Travel Awards!

The awards are less than two weeks away, and we’re getting pretty damn excited to dance the night away with all you fab industry gals (and guys).

200

Yeah, you know it.

But guess what? You can’t party the night away with us unless you have a ticket! Seems obvious, we know, but since the event is so close, we thought we should remind you.

This is not only a great night out with your industry pals, it’s a chance to show that you support the women in this industry as well as recognised their well-deserved success.

These awards recognise exceptional women who have achieved astronomic success in their professional arenas and celebrates their invaluable contribution through their leadership, innovation and courage to the travel industry.

It’s way, waaaaaay too late to enter, but it’s not too late to attend and support this fabulous event! Oh, and you get to get dressed up and have a celebratory champagne or five.

The celebration of women, your best industry gals, and a night out to remember? What more could you want?!

Grab some last minute tickets right here – and start planning your party outfit, stat.

This year’s awards will be held on June 21 at Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf. All other info can be found on the Women in Travel website here.
