The Women in MICE Awards

The Women in MICE Awards recognise the important role women play in the meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions industry.

Conceived by 3S Media, and its MICE industry brands Meetings magazine and theplanner.guru, this initiative plays a vital role in providing a platform that motivates, inspires and supports women in the industry to achieve their personal and professional goals. It also connects women in the industry to leverage their reach and resources, creating a community of economically empowered women.

During the sixth annual Women in MICE celebration in 2019, the Women in MICE Mentorship and Development Initiative was launched to promote giving back to the industry. This will facilitate knowledge and skill sharing, to further advance the professional development of women in this industry.
