Women in Tourism and Hospitality Conference on Track to Sell Out and Disrupt

August 24, 2017 Conferences No Comments Email Email

Women in Tourism and Hospitality (, an organization dedicated to the advancement of women in the tourism and hospitality industries is on track to a successful sell-out of its inaugural conference. The all-day event takes place in Toronto on September 18th, 2017 at the Park Hyatt Hotel, with a welcome cocktail reception to kick-off the conference on September 17th.

Women in Tourism and Hospitality (, an organization dedicated to the advancement of women in the tourism and hospitality industries, today announced the program lineup for its upcoming inaugural conference taking place in Toronto on Sept. 18, 2017, at the Park Hyatt Hotel.

One of the renowned speakers who will share her knowledge during the event is Reeta Gupta, Chief Operating Officer of The Gupta Group and The Easton’s Group.  “Ten years ago, in the hospitality industry, you would only see men as you went up the hotel hierarchy,” says Gupta.  “Now, you see many, many more women on the front line and as General Managers, which is amazing.”

But, she believes more needs to be done. “There is a still a gap,” Gupta adds. “We still do not see many women in executive roles. This is what needs to change, and this conference will help. It’s so important to have women walk away from the conference, having heard from other women in executive positions such as Rosanna Caira and Anne Larcade, and feel empowered. More importantly, I hope we can create a strong sense of community. I am always looking for inspiration and always looking to learn and better myself!”

The conference will feature industry icons and thought leaders sharing personal and professional stories of their unique paths to success. Development of individual and corporate best practice strategies will be shared and innovative initiatives and experience with other successful global executives curated and revealed.  Attendees will learn how to be bold, fierce, strong and motivated to take action.  The agenda is designed to focus on critical topics such as equality, diversity and building opportunities.
