March 3-5, 2023 New York City



Welcome to the Women’s Travel Fest! Join us as we celebrate our milestone 10 Year Anniversary in 2023.

Our Mission

Since 2013, we’ve equipped women with the tools they need to travel the world in a safe way. We’re a supportive, diverse travel community that aims to inspire and empower.

Our Community 

Meet likeminded women (and all identifying) who love to travel, just as much as you do. We’re not just about business; our focus is a shared passion for travel through unity, community, and meaningful connection. 

Our Speakers

Learn from industry leaders as they help you design your dream trip! From practical to the inspirational, their unique expertise gives you a first class seat to perfecting your travel skills. 

Our Event

With over a dozen sessions and workshops, you won’t just walk away with knowledge, you’ll find your tribe. Many feel a sense of genuine comradery amongst the attendees. We hope you’ll join us and experience this, too.

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.

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 evolved in the past 10 years, and we’re excited to be a part of that evolution.

While our core mission remains inspiring, connecting, and empowering women — we invite travelers of all genders to attend.

“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.”
