Attention, women in power! We want you!

Attention, women in power! We want you!

With the 2018 Women in Travel Awards coming up faster than ever this year, the judges are already up to their necks in entries.

Which means it’s time to nominate for the Women in Travel Power List for 2018!

We’re looking for some powerful women who are absolutely killing it in the travel industry.

We want you on this list! This year, anyone can nominate for the Power List. You can even self-nominate!

You definitely don’t have to be a CEO or founder of a company to get your name on the power list – but we are looking for women with some form of power.

Basically, you can’t be an intern or junior employee.

For all you industry folk, nominate a colleague or boss you find inspiring – the sky is the limit!

Once we have a nice, long list of lovely ladies, we’ll throw it to our judges to pick and choose 20 Power List winners, which will be revealed at the Women in Travel Awards, held in late June this year.

So get nominating here! 

To reiterate: the Power List is not a popularity contest or people’s choice list.

Each person is only entered once and a panel of external judges choose 20 women for the Power List based on nominees.

If you’re a female judge for the Women in Travel Awards, you can put yourself forward for a spot on the power list, provided you don’t vote for yourself when choosing the final 20!

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.

You’ve got two weeks left to nominate a powerful lady (even yourself) for the Power List, which gives you a lil’ more time to think on it.

This year’s awards will be held on June 21 at Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf – and nominations for the Women in Travel Power List 2018 will close May 9. 

All other info can be found on the Women in Travel website here – but to lock yourself in, grab yourself an early bird ticket right here.
