Women in Travel Retail celebrated International Women’s Day on March 8th in collaboration with Tumi at its Regent Street store.
The hugely successful event was attended by 73 women including Rosie Swale-Pope, a motivational speaker and author who delighted the crowd with her tales of various incredible adventures around the world.
On hand were Tumi staff to demonstrate the art of packing, and to share insight into the Tumi repairs and personalisation departments. Guests also had the opportunity to discover the Tumi’s new women’s collections: Voyageur and 19 Degree.
It was a thoroughly convivial evening; guests were spoilt with Champagne and Canapes and all in attendance were entered into a raffle to win a Tumi Backpack (first prize) or a soft toy fox given by Rosie as part of her story (second prize) - Tumi also generously provided guests with goody bags on departure.
Sarah Branquinho, Chair of WiTR said: “It was an absolute delight to see so many faces at the event and are thrilled to have gained some new members as a result of the event, and offers to host other events. Many thanks to Alex Willson and the team at Tumi for their incredible hospitality and generosity during the evening, to Rosie, and to all those who attended!”
