2nd Annual Woman-Focused Travel Festival Moves to San Francisco To Inspire, Empower & Connect Women in Travel

SAN FRANCISCO—Women are the biggest group of decision-makers in the United States travel industry, yet millions of women are intimidated to travel by themselves and choose simply to stay home. A ground-breaking event called the Women’s Travel Fest is here to help change that.

After the 2014 inaugural Women’s Travel Fest sold-out to over 350+ women in New York City, the event is moving to San Francisco Feb. 28-March 1, 2015 to inspire, empower and connect women through travel.

The Women’s Travel Fest is a consumer event that helps women to explore the world and discover deeper meaning in their travels. This year’s festival has been expanded to a two-day event, offering opportunities for smaller break-out sessions on more focused travel segments (LGBTQ travel, Family Travel, Travel Writing, etc ), in addition to a main day event that includes a marketplace and keynotes by some of the travel industry’s leading ladies. See a full schedule here.

See a full list of our incredible speakers here.

The Women’s Travel Fest (sponsored by Expedia) will go beyond the boundaries of your average travel event, giving women newfound travel connections and empowering them to take on the world.

Topics of discussion include everything from travel logistics to women’s health and safety abroad. The event also includes a travel marketplace with vendors & giveaways, lunch, a happy hour designed for optimum networking, and a kick-off party on Friday, February 27th to help celebrate a weekend of women in travel.

One of America’s most remote national parks lies 70 miles off Key West, Florida.
