They create and develop travel offers, they give distinction to tourist destinations, and in peace initiatives and sustainable tourism, their ability to be proactive is exemplary. The visionary idea of Ajay Prakash in launching these awards at ITB Berlin is just one of very, very many groundbreaking initiatives that see the light of day each year at this show, and one which no doubt will not go unnoticed. At all levels of the industry, women are indeed playing a more pivotal role, and the world’s top hotel operators are indeed proof of this. One such example is Patricia Page-Champion, Senior Vice President & Commercial Director EMEA for Hilton Worldwide, heading up commercial services for no less than 405 properties, and back at ITB Berlin as a true figurehead for her teams.
