The first event in Asia that is dedicated to Women Empowerment and Travel, ZafigoX is set to take place on 29 to 31 August 2017 at the Royale Chulan Penang Hotel, promising an immersive and evocative experience for every participant. This brainchild of Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir aims to grow into an annual event that will take place in multiple locations across Asia in the coming years.
Apart from providing a wealth of personal insights and useful travel skills, ZafigoX will also act as a platform for trailblazing speakers from around the region to give talks of their travel experiences with an abundance of lessons to share.
The event will also feature workshops and activities on skills that could contribute to a more confident and enjoyable travel experience, along with a bazaar that is even open to the public, giving a chance for local women artisans to showcase their products over 5,000 anticipated visitors.
“I believe that travel is an indirect but powerful way of empowering women to be more self-confident and independent. As we venture out of our geographic boundaries, especially alone, we also open our minds to going beyond societal and mental boundaries too. It is this awakening that empowers us to choose the lives we truly want to live,” comments Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, founder of the women’s travel website, Zafigo.com.
