WOMEN to WATCH in HTL 2020 INDEX

Following the success of the Women to Watch in HTL Index in 2019 in partnership with The MBS Group, we are delighted to launch the Women To Watch in HTL 2020 Index - again supported by the wonderful team at The MBS Group.

The inaugural edition in 2019 unearthed a monumental wealth of experiences, personal and professional stories, successes, tips and lessons learnt. The women featured in last year's Index have inspired many others to progress within our industry, and have become mentors and role models. The buzz around the launch of the Index last year was phenomenal and we can still feel its powerful and positive impact.

The 2020 Index will include two categories:

We are now seeking your nominations for this year's Index. Nominations open on the 9th March and will close on the 1st May. The Women to Watch in HTL 2020 Index will be published on the 7th October 2020.
