The Experience

Accelerate New England Women in Hospitality and Tourism is a retreat designed by and targeted for women Owners, General Managers, Executives and Department Directors and Managers of hospitality and tourism organizations.

At Accelerate 2019, you will find yourself in a unique retreat setting with both the stunning Stowe, Vermont mountains and a modern boutique bowling alley as the backdrop. Yes, this will probably be your first meeting experience at a bowling alley….Through active participation and intimate conversations we will challenge existing mental models. We will use leadership frameworks and discuss our case studies in the hospitality and tourism industry. We will leave with practical and actionable tools and feeling empowered to tackle the challenges we face as modern day women leaders.
