1. Looking at the size and health of the travel organisation of which the woman is a part of;
2. The importance of the work that they do within the travel industry;
3. How their work has impacted and influenced the general workings/economics of the travel industry;

MTA’s Co-Founder and Managing Director, Karen Merricks, has secured a spot in the TOP 20 POWER LIST 2023 at the Women in Travel Awards by Travel Weekly! 🏆
