3S Media announces the winners of the Top Women in MICE Awards 2019


The Top Women in MICE Awards 2019 culminated in a spectacular ceremony that recognised outstanding women across the length and breadth of the events industry. With an inspiring line-up of speakers and entertainment to create an ideal setting in which the industry’s most remarkable women were celebrated, the event upped the ante with the exceptional calibre of women who were acknowledged during the event, as well as new additions to their special recognition awards. The full list is below.
Speaking on the Awards, was Shanna Jacobsen, editor of Meetings magazine, part of the 3S Media group of titles: “We are delighted at the wonderful reception we have had to this year’s Top Women in MICE list and the ongoing evolution of the Awards. We are confident that through these awards we continue to uphold female excellence within the industry to truly showcase the qualities and talent that underpin what the Top Women in MICE Awards stand for.”
The Awards were launched in 2014 and in its sixth instalment, achieved new heights with the list of winners reflecting a more inclusive and encompassing drive.
“Top Women in MICE Awards are more than an awards ceremony. Not only do we recognise and acknowledge remarkable women making an exceptional difference to this industry on a daily basis, we also gear ourselves to develop the next generation of female movers and shakers in MICE. Mentorship is not just an honour, it is our responsibility. We need to give, in order to receive. These female icons are receiving because they are giving across all spheres of their lives, on a daily basis. ” says Jacques Breytenbach, 3S Media’s General Manager.
