The Top 40 Women in MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) initiative has been going strong over the last four years, and plays an important role in providing a platform that motivates, inspires and supports women in the industry to achieve both personal and professional goals. It also connects women in the industry to leverage their reach and resources, creating a global community of economically empowered women.
These women have proved that they are the best in business events. They know that success is no accident. It takes hard work, perseverance and passion. The 2017 Top 40 Women in MICE awards, held at the prestigious Rand Club in Johannesburg, saw 165 women recognised for their hard work and dedication to the industry.
The importance of acknowledging the abilities and success of these women cannot be understated, as there are still various barriers that prevent women from fully participating at the highest levels of business and government. These must be overcome.
This is your opportunity to nominate the distinguished women that you think made this industry what it is today.
