Welcome to the Women’s Adventure Expo!

We are the first adventure and travel expo in the UK dedicated to women. We are also a pioneering social enterprise empowering women who are interested in, or engaged in, adventure and exploration.
We are commited to the growth of a positive global platform which celebrates and inspires women through adventure. We believe in making adventure accessible and inclusive to all women no matter what age, ability and stage of life.
By connecting people, supporting one another and encouraging women to challenge themselves, we aim to raise awareness for, and collaborate with, projects that harness ethical purpose and create opportunities to expand our social value. Keep reading to find out more.

Are Men allowed in the Women’s Adventure Expo?

Yes absolutely, the expo is a platform for all people to celebrate, promote and inspire women through adventure. Although the Expo is aimed at female development, we hope many men will join with our mission and goals to empower women in the adventure community.

What did visitors think of our first event in 2015?

Our feedback survey found that 95% rated the event in the top bracket of excellent, and 5% rated the event as good. Through the comments and reactions of our 2015 visitors we know the event was a great success.

Are Expo events suitable for my friends?

Yes, we find many people you would not necessarily expect, are empowered by adventure, and perceptions are challenged. The atmosphere at our events is incredibly positive; it’s hard not to walk away feeling motivated and uplifted. We strive to make adventure inclusive to all women, no matter what physical ability, life stage and/or social position.

Does the Expo promote gender equality in the adventure community?

Yes, the Expo is an open platform for all to empower women through adventure. We are aware many people experience gender bias towards men in the adventure industry. Through our memberships, resources and network we are committed to positively improving gender gaps within the world of adventure.

What can I expect from an Expo event?

You will want to come again! 86% of our feedback said they wanted to attend more Expo events. You can expect to have your self-perceptions and self-limits challenged, also your perceptions of adventure. We provide tools and resources to empower you to plan your own adventures, and from beginners to the most experienced, there is inspiration for everyone.

How does the Expo make a positive contribution to society?

We are expanding our social value through adventure. By collaborating with women around the globe, we are able to embed positive messages and actions which inspire change and community action. Many of our Ambassador’s projects directly impact conservation, scientific research, and foster healthy cross-cultural relations; all through women’s adventure.
