Rooster PR promotes event for “women in travel by women in travel”
The Women in Travel Meetup, an international event for “women in travel by women in travel”, has chosen Rooster PR to raise the profile of the event, which takes place this year at the World Travel Market in early November.
Rooster will be responsible for the Women in Travel Meetup’s press office activity, manage both proactive and reactive media relations, as well as run its social media channels and on-the-ground PR support at the event itself.
Alessandra Alonso (pictured) launched The Women in Travel Meetup in 2014 and it aims to engage with,and create a community of female professionals, current and future entrepreneurs and suppliers working in and around the travel industry.
The initiative aims to become the premier, international travel event platform, encouraging women in the travel industry to come together and support each other.
It will have a particular focus on enabling potential entrepreneurs to tap into a support network they would not otherwise have access to when trying to set up their own enterprise.
Alonso said: “I’m delighted the Rooster team is on board to help raise awareness of this important event as it continues to grow into its third year. With their support, I look forward to an even bigger and better event at World Travel Market 2016 and urge both men and women in the industry to get involved and attend our sessions.”
James Brooke, MD at Rooster, added: “With female travel professionals making up such a high percentage of the industry, this initiative is so important. We’re proud to be supporting the Women in Travel Meetup and look forward to helping women across the sector fulfil their career potential and reach key positions in the industry.”
The Women in Travel Meetup will take place on Tuesday November 8, and host two panel debates with travel professionals and entrepreneurs, group mentoring sessions and a networking session.
