Welcome to the inaugural Vacation Rental Women's Summit in New Orleans

February 19-20, 2019 | Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans

The inaugural Vacation Rental Women’s Summit, sponsored by VRM Intel and the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA), is coming to the spectacular Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans, February 19–20, 2019. Words cannot express how incredibly excited we are.

In most destinations, women dominate the vacation rental industry, from the back offices to the executive offices, and as women, we face a unique set of challenges in this rapidly changing sector. Our objective for this event is to bring the smartest and most influential women in the vacation rental industry together to inspire and empower attendees, encourage a sense of community, and discuss high-level topics specific to this unique audience. We will also be offering opportunities for creativity, innovation, and discussion that have the potential to dramatically change the trajectory of our businesses; and we will be celebrating the pioneering women who helped build the vacation rental industry into the force that it is today. See the complete agenda here.

The Vacation Rental Women’s Summit is thrilled and humbled to feature Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love and Big Magic, and Lady Carnarvon, the countess and guardian of Highclere Castle, the real-life Downton Abbey. Joining them as keynote speakers are Leslie Preston, founder and managing director of Bachcare; Tina Weyand, chief product officer at HomeAway; and Mary Lynn Clark, president of Wyndham Vacation Rentals. See all 70+ speakers here.

Although many events are often described as “can’t-miss,” we believe that this is truly a can’t-miss event for women in the vacation rental industry.
