Women in Hospitality Day at Hotelympia

Curated by Alessandra Alonso

 Thursday 8th March 2018, International Women's Day
Hotelympia, ExCeL London

 According to the British Hospitality Association approximately 60% of employees in the tourism and hospitality industries are women, yet only 15% are in senior management positions. Today there are circa 24,000 fewer women in management positions in the hospitality sector than there were in 2010 and women working in the hospitality and catering sector in 2015 were on average paid 18% less than their male co-workers. At Hotelympia we will be addressing these issues by focusing an entire day on Women in Hospitality. 

Our Women in Hospitality day celebrated successes, looked at challenges and focused on opportunities for women in the Hospitality Industry. We showcased both female and male champions, providing the perfect opportunity to connect with & learn from top industry leaders. We also discussed the contribution made by female hospitality entrepreneurs and showcased some up-and-coming stars.
