Singapore’s first professional female magician and escape artist Ning Cai (left) and her travel companion radio DJ Pam Ho, will be joining the all-woman’s cast at WITX 2012 in Bangkok this April.
The two adventurers, both of whom have just completed a year-long trip around the world, will be talking about their experiences as women travelers on their own and also sharing their recommendations to the industry on how to target this travel segment.
“We hope to share our experience of traveling the world as two women, the difficulties, obstacles and dangers we faced, the ways we got around them. We will share candidly about what we hope to see happen in the industry so that more women can travel more widely and more freely,” said the two.
Pam and Ning will share details on how their trip materialized including how they financed it, and how they used the online media to plan and publicise their trip.
WITX is a one-day conference, to be organized in Bangkok this April. It will gather women leaders of different generations, cultures and backgrounds who will address issues and trends, share ideas and insights and unearth opportunities in the Asia Pacific travel space.
To be held April 27 at Dusit Thani Hotel, Bangkok, the conference is organised by the people behind the award-winning Web in Travel conference.
The conference themed, “Celebrating The X-Factor In Travel”, will also focus on women as major consumers of travel.
Ning and Pam expressed their excitement about seeing the production of an event like this.
“It's about time we have an event like this! The face of travel has evolved so much, and women are at the forefront of setting trends and pushing the envelope when it comes to world travel. We're women, we're Asian, and we're avid travellers, so we're thrilled and honoured to be part of Asia's very first all-women's travel event,” they said.
