Celebrating female excellence across the industry
The Top 40 Women in MICE Awards achieved new heights in 2018. With the high calibre of nominees and a beautiful awards ceremony celebrating the achievements of these women, we are looking forward to the next instalment of this exceptional event.


Woman in MICE Mentorship and Development Initiative

Project Plan Overview

As the Top 40 Women in Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) enters into its fifth annual Top 40 Women in MICE celebration, we look forward to deepening, refining and growing the industry – taking it to new heights.

Women are the nurturers and caregivers of our world and within the MICE space, these traits are especially important. 3S Media, through Women in MICE and its Meetings brands, together with the South Africa National Convention Bureau (SANCB), has launched an initiative that aims to encourage and promote greater mentorship amongst women within the area of MICE by tracking their stories and celebrating the ways in which they are impacting their colleagues, staff and affiliates.

Meetings and 3S Media, through its online brands and print platforms, will support the success stories of women who are giving back to the industry, however and wherever they can.

Under the Women in MICE Mentorship and Development Initiative, women who are keen on mentoring individuals in need of guidance opt in to provide the necessary level of input and direction required – whether it is through hands-on experience or exposure to industry or help understanding the ins-and-outs of the meetings space. This will ensure valuable and practical knowledge transfer that can then benefit the individual and be applied going forward.

Together with the support of the SANCB, we will develop an online repository of articles and resources to bolster the initiative.

A possible solution to this is mentorship – where an individual is able... Read More
