With gratitude, we’re excited to announce that our friends at Rented are joining VRM Intel as presenting sponsors for the upcoming 2021 Vacation Rental Women’s Summit, Dec 1 – 2, at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans.
Occurring every other year, the Vacation Rental Women’s Summit is designed to celebrate the accomplishments of women in the vacation rental industry, provide targeted motivational and educational sessions, and to build and encourage participants to grow as thought leaders in the fastest-growing and most exciting sector in travel.
“I know firsthand the kind of assumptions that can be made about the positions women are expected to hold in our field,” said Rented CFO Karen Fleck. “It can sometimes feel like an uphill climb for our talented female leaders to stake their claim as trusted authorities in this industry. And, as is almost always the case, doubly so for women of color. It can be frustrating, because we have so many amazing women in our industry, with so much wisdom to share. That’s precisely why I’m thrilled that Rented has partnered with VRM Intel to sponsor this year’s Vacation Rental Women’s Summit!”
In addition to presenting sponsors, Rented and VRM Intel, Red Sky Travel Insurance, IMEG, Breezeway, Generali-CSA, ICND, and TravelNet Solutions (TRACK) have also generously joined as top-tier sponsors.
“It’s hard to put into words how incredibly grateful we are for the HUGE support and resources these companies are committing to help bring this very special event back,” said VRM Intel founder, Amy Hinote, who launched this event in 2019. “For both women and men in our industry, you don’t want to miss this epic holiday celebration of the women in our industry. It’s going to be something we’ll remember and talk about for decades.”
Hinote added, “To the men in our industry, I also want to extend an invitation to you. This event is designed to celebrate and promote the women in our industry, but it is not exclusively for women. We’re encouraging our industry’s men to join us in New Orleans to build these women up and share in celebrating their accomplishments and contributions to the industry. Last year, Tim Cafferty, Steve Milo, Matt Landau, Ben Edwards, Laird Sager, Brett Parry, Joel Inman, Colin Morrison, Vincent Rosan, the CiiRUS executive team, Sascha Hausmann, and Cliff Johnson, among others, joined us to support this effort—and I think I can speak for them that they are glad they did. So please come. I promise it will be worth it!”
Tickets are $849 (with early rates still available through February) and include a welcome meet-and-greet party the night before the conference, our French Quarter brunch, a special Holiday High Tea, Red Sky’s Mardi Gras Party at the famous Red Fish Grill, the Canal Street Breakfast Extravaganza, the Pioneer Award Luncheon sponsored by IMEG, the keynote awards reception sponsored by TRACK, and our champagne closing . . . plus live music, special keynote speakers that we cannot yet announce, and many holiday surprises throughout the event.
