Women Innovation Days

WIND 2024

 

June 12-14, 2024, Bohinj Valley, Slovenia

About the event

Women Innovation Days is an event that is dedicated to female managers in the aviation industry. The aim of the first edition of the conference is to develop optimal, innovative solutions in three areas of airport operations – training and courses, conducting commercial activities at airports (aviation and non-aviation sectors), and infrastructure management.

The purpose of the conference is to become a meeting platform for practitioners to get to know each other and exchange experiences. We are gathering several dozen people from the mentioned industry sectors.

Our conference gives an opportunity to learn about new solutions in the largest and most progressive airports around the globe. We are happy to invite associations, organizations and private companies to fruitfully cooperate for the Women Innovative Days conference. 

June 12-14, 2024 in the beautiful scenery –  Bohinj Valley, Slovenia, together we will talk about what we are passionate about, what drives us and is important to us in our professional lives.

The conference is designed for women managers from the aviation industry who want to exchange experience and their professional network. We have chosen 4 main topics for the conference: sustainable journey, travel retail, HR & training academies, and terminal design. We’ve decided to choose these topics because we think that modern airport managers should be interested in trends and innovations in these sectors. Of course, we will try to make as professional and deep discussions as possible, but on the other hand, we plan it to be understandable and interesting for every open-minded professional.
