IRL Networking! Women in Travel & Hospitality Conference July 11-12 in LA
Who is so ready to meet IN REAL LIFE?!? Great opportunity for networking, education, and inspiration happening next week at the 2022 Women in Travel and Hospitality Conference is taking place on July 12th at the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, CA, with the grand opening reception at the new Aster & Private Membership Club in Hollywood on the evening of July 11th.
Powered by BLLA (Boutique Lifestyle Leaders Association) and TIEWN (Travel Industry Executive Women’s Network), this event will be the first in-person gathering since March 9, 2020, which was a pivotal day and the beginning day of Covid, so participants are anxiously awaiting this network’s most prestigious event.
“When we gather together at this particular event, the energy from attendees is palpable,” said Frances Kiradjian, CEO & Founder of both TIEWN and BLLA. “It never ceases to amaze me how this group of industry professionals finds such enormous inspiration amongst their peers as well as support and camaraderie. It gives me great pride and pleasure to experience this every year, whether virtual or in-person.”
The event begins with an Opening Cocktail Party sponsored by the new Aster & Private Membership Club near the famous Hollywood & Vine intersection in Hollywood, CA, which is opening this summer. We will be welcomed to the property on the new Pool deck where the opening will be held and greeted by the hotel’s executive team headed by brilliant boutique hotelier David Bowd, founder of Salt Hotels who is operating the property.
The event continues with a dynamic Agenda and Speakers, including keynotes, presentations, panels, fireside chats with female trailblazers, and much more. All of the content will align with this year’s theme of Money, Abundance, and Manifestation.

This conference is thoughtfully curated for women in these fields, as it cultivates a space to create connections and gain top-tier insights from femme entrepreneurs and professionals.
