On the final day of the 6th annual Women in Travel Summit in Portland, Maine, Wanderful excitedly announced that Kansas City, Missouri will host the seventh-annual Women in Travel Summit (WITS) from May 1-3, 2020. Together with Visit KC, Kansas City’s destination marketing organization, WITS is anticipated to attract approximately 500 women in the travel industry.

Every year, WITS brings together travel influencers and industry leaders from across North America and around the world. These entrepreneurs, influencers, writers, and leaders will convene to discuss insider tips and industry trends, network, and cultivate a supportive and empowered community of female travelers.

“We are absolutely thrilled to host our 7th annual Women in Travel Summit in Kansas City,” said Beth Santos, Founder and CEO of Wanderful. “KC is a hidden gem and we can’t wait to showcase it to some of the world’s most influential travelers and their audiences.”

“On behalf of the regional hospitality and tourism community, we look forward to showcasing Kansas City to WITS attendees in 2020. ” said Traci Moon, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Communications for Visit KC. “With KC’s world-class barbecue, sultry jazz and once-in-a-generation Downtown renaissance, we couldn’t think of a better time to welcome this illustrious group to the heart of the New Midwest.”

The Summit will be held in the heart of the city at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown.

“The Kansas City Marriott Downtown is thrilled at the opportunity to host WITS 2020,” said Dustin Holcumbrink, Director of Sales & Marketing at KC Marriott Downtown. “It is an honor to have a group of such successful, influential and respected women from our industry as our special guests.”
