How BLLA Uses the Money from Tickets


About the Event
BLLA and StayBoutique’s Female Empowerment Conference is an offline gathering of enlightened women in the travel, boutique and hospitality industries.

Transformed from the (Travel Industry) Executive Women’s Conference, BLLA and StayBoutique’s Female Empowerment Conference recognizes women internationally who lead in fields related to boutique, hospitality, travel, and tourism. This conference consciously creates a forum for women to support each other and to discuss, debate, and deliberate on issues of importance as it relates to the modern female achiever. As our community grows, we feel it’s important to tackle issues that influential women in the travel, tourism, boutique, and hospitality spaces must face. We consciously support all avenues to success for our network of femme entrepreneurs and professionals.
Please click “Get Tickets” to apply to register for the conference! We will let you know within three days if you have been accepted to participate.

2020 Series
  • This year’s theme will be The Enlightened Women of Our Age.
  • We rally women in the travel, hospitality and boutique industries to evoke contemporary change and support each other as a community.
  • With this conference series, we have focused around the growing influence of women in these fields. This is the platform where you will be challenged to think new thoughts and champion the cause of inclusivity.
  • We view this conference series as a Women’s type of Coffee House or Salon, reserved for bold women with the feminine eye.
  • Our attendees come to feel empowered, gain the right resources, make strategic interactions, and celebrate the growing movement of modern feminism.
  • We are crusaders and intellectuals coming together with the same goal. Together, let us defy the convention of sameness. Words spark movements, so let us come together and get the conversation going.
  • Join fellow believers in changing the status quo on March 8-9, 2020 in Los Angeles.

This was by first time attending the BLLA Female Empowerment Conference and I couldn’t have asked for anything more! It was an amazing conference in an amazing venue with amazing women! The ahenda hit the mark on many levels. The panels and speakers were dynamic, informative and fun.Lillian Lepore-KW Commercial DTLA

It was so refreshing to be in a room filled with powerful women in hospitality! I loved the fashion forward looks as well as no stuffy suits. There were lots of forward thinking ideas and I felt that I made meaningful connections with others in the industry.Priti Patel

I have been to many travel industry executive women’s conferences and meetings, and beyond a doubt this was the most well done and most important event for women in our industry today.Peggy Lee

This event sparked something within me and I came back to my office eager to share ideas and opportunities that the company should explore.Crystal Walker Cole
