Sporting our CMUKs at WITS '15

What is WITS?

WITS (the Women in Travel Summit) is the world’s only summit for women travel influencers, creators, and brands to meet, network, and grow their skills. We help connect women influencers, bloggers, and creators together while simultaneously providing them with great tools, networking opportunities with some top companies looking to work with bloggers, and valuable inspiration and support. WITS is the creation of Wanderful, a global network for women travelers. We help connect women travelers together (and not just bloggers and entrepreneurs either) by providing a safe and trusted forum for them to share travel tips, exchange stories, and just be with a community of women who understand what it is to be a woman abroad. Wanderful members get a discount to WITS as well as a number of other amazing perks like exclusive access to webinars, events in our global chapters, and more, so consider joining our community here.

What kinds of sessions does WITS offer?

Sessions are offered at beginner and advanced levels and will be broken up into multiple tracks. Click here to view last year’s schedule and see the kinds of sessions we offer at WITS.

Who should come to WITS? Do I have to be female to attend?

Every woman influencer who works in the travel space, or ally, is more than welcome to come! You do not have to be a woman to attend, though the summit and all related activities will be focused on women in travel. At the summit you’ll find bloggers, Instagrammers, journalists, travelers, writers, creators, PR/brand representatives, entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations, developers, coders, videographers and photographers, teachers, and more.

At WITS, we are firmly committed to diversity, intersectionality, and inclusion. We aim to make our events inclusive for attendees of any ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender, expression, age, or ability. If you have a suggestion for how we can better accommodate you, we’d love to hear from you!

How can I get involved with WITS?

There are four ways you can get involved:

1) Purchase a ticket. We’d love to see you there!

2) Get your company involved as a brand sponsor or exhibitor.

3) Volunteer with us. Sign up for our newsletter to find out when volunteer opportunities open!

4) Spread the word. Do you know a person, company, or brand who you think should come to WITS? Tell them!

How can I or my company sponsor WITS?

Check out our partnerships kit! We are seeking inspired companies that are interested in growing or enhancing their relationship with women travelers, or working with travel bloggers. Partnership opportunities include online promotions, booth space, giveaways, official parties, coffee hours, tours, and more. The attached kit is just a taste; we encourage you to contact Ana at ana [at] sheswanderful [dot] com to discuss how we can give your brand the exposure it deserves.

If WITS were a wild animal, what would it be?
