The Hilton in Barbados was a fantastic venue for our now infamous AWTE Sunset Reception sponsored by All Leisure Group.
A few showers didn’t dampen the enjoyment of the event or the spectacular views of the sea and sunset! This annual event gave many of our members and guests the chance to catch up and enjoy a cocktail or two.
Lorraine Barnes Burton welcomed the guests on behalf of Amanda Taylor, current Chair of AWTE, who was unable to attend the ITT Conference and introduced a new AWTE membership programme. For the first time in its almost 60-year history this programme sees the AWTE welcoming male colleagues to get involved with the Association via Company Membership, giving companies the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to supporting the careers of women in their organisations.
Our sponsor for the evening, Roger Allard, Chairman of All Leisure Group, addressed the audience commenting “I am delighted to be sponsoring the AWTE’s Sunset Reception in Barbados, and I am even more delighted to be addressing you as the first Company Member of AWTE! All Leisure is committed to supporting female colleagues and staff, and sees membership of the AWTE as a great opportunity to help develop and support some of the best talent in travel. The networking and business events which AWTE produce throughout the year are also a great way for us to interact with male and female colleagues in the industry.”
