The main purpose for Women in the Industry is to promote growth of women in the vacation ownership industry by connecting and advancing skills through education.

The event kicks-off Friday evening at The Fountains, a Bluegreen Resort, with an exciting networking reception where attendees will have the opportunity to connect with industry peers and forge new relationships.  The Saturday programming will feature three education panels focusing on the successful integration of generations in the workforce, unique tips on effective networking and the important role women play in the purchasing processing.  All this along with WIN updates and plenty of networking opportunities will be available at WIN Orlando 2013.
