Covid-19 + Gender + Age Policy

We no longer require proof of vaccination to attend – but we strongly recommend it. 

Guests feeling sick or who have known Covid-19 must notify us to receive digital access. Do NOT attend. 

Guests are recommended to wear masks when inside during group events, but this policy is not mandatory. 



When Women’s Travel Fest first began, there were very few resources available to support women’s unique health and safety concerns while traveling.

But the world has changed in the past 10 years, and we’re glad to see it!

While our core mission remains inspiring, connecting, and empowering women to travel — we recognize that gender is fluid.

People of all genders are welcome to attend the Women’s Travel Fest. If our message resonates with you, join us! Our community is awesome.

“An incredible gathering of women to converse, create, and connect. I appreciate how the speakers not only share their (often) powerful experiences but also offer tips and resources for more enriching journeys.”

Allison Sodha

“Not only is the actual event so fun, well organized and inspiring, but I have made long-lasting friendships and business relationships thanks to this incredible event and the community that it has created.”

Chelsea Glass

“What I love about this show is that it isn’t just for content creators and people working in travel like so many of the other travel conferences – it’s a gathering about travel for travelers – where we talk about what’s relevant to women travelers right now – no matter how old you are or how you travel.”
