Johannesburg, South Africa: The Planner Guru, producers of the annual Women in MICE Awards and part of the 3S Media group, today announced that the deadline for the submission of nominations for the 2021 Women in MICE Awards will be extended to 30 July 2021.

“Given the recent challenges we have faced in South Africa and in particular, in the wake of the ongoing lockdown following the recent spike in cases, we feel it is only fitting to allow the industry additional time to collate their nominations,” commented Shanna Jacobsen, Managing Editor of The Planner Guru and Meetings magazine.

The Women in MICE Awards recognise the important role women play in the meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) industry. The Awards play a vital role in providing a platform that motivates, inspires and supports women in the industry to achieve their personal and professional goals. It also connects women in the industry to leverage their reach and resources, creating a community of economically empowered women.

The Awards were postponed from last year. Judges will therefore consider efforts made during both the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 periods. In addition, the Women in MICE Mentorship and Development Initiative continues to give back to the industry by facilitating knowledge and skills sharing to further advance the professional development of women in the industry.

“As we have seen during the crisis with diversity, equality and inclusion a hugely topical theme, the marginalisation of certain groups requires urgent attention. The Women in MICE Awards have consistently recognised the crucial role women play within the MICE industry but also in our homes, and we feel it is more important than ever to award the efforts that are making a difference to how we both work and live,” concludes Shanna
