Following the resounding success of its inaugural edition at MECC Maastricht, Women in Exhibitions is proud to announce the eagerly awaited second edition, set to take place on 18 – 19 November in Milan, Italy.

The summit, dedicated to empowering and advancing women professionals in the exhibitions and events industry, promises to build upon the success of the previous edition and deliver an even greater impact. This event is supported by Fondazione Fiera Milano and the entire Italian exhibition industry, and will mark the creation of the Italian Chapter of Women in Exhibitions.

The first edition of the Women in Exhibitions World Summit, held at the MECC in Maastricht in June 2023, garnered widespread acclaim for its insightful discussions, networking opportunities, and commitment to fostering gender diversity and inclusivity within the sector. Attendees from around the globe praised the summit for its thought-provoking sessions, dynamic speakers, and great atmosphere: “What a great event: such a positive vibe! It gave me so much energy. I was touched by the generosity of the speakers in sharing their personal experiences. The 2nd edition is a “not-to-be-missed”!

Building on this momentum, the second edition of the Women in Exhibitions World Summit aims to further elevate the conversation surrounding gender equality and leadership in the exhibitions industry. The theme is: “Building bridges, breaking ceilings”, and will include keynote presentations, panel discussions, and interactive workshops. Participants will have the opportunity to gain valuable insights, share experiences, and connect with fellow professionals passionate about driving positive, sustainable change. There are also a few surprises in store!
