The South Florida Chapter of the Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT-South Florida) in partnership with Books & Books cordially invites you to sponsor the 14th Annual International Business Woman of the Year (IBWOY) Awards Luncheon taking place on Friday, February 19th at the Rusty Pelican.

 

The IBWOY Awards recognize outstanding women in international trade and international business for their success and contributions to South Florida businesses and communities. These exceptional women have impacted the business world personally in their South Florida communities, in their professional capacities, and have been involved in mentoring other women in their industries. An IBWOY Award winner will be chosen from community member-nominated candidates from each of three categories: Large Company, Small/Medium Company, and Public Service/Non-Profit.

 

This year’s IBWOY Awards Luncheon will bring together more than 300 members of the South Florida community, including past IBWOY Award winners, to pay tribute to this year’s extraordinary honorees. The IBWOY Awards Luncheon will gather women and men in the South Florida international business and trade industry for dining and networking with the opportunity to engage new contacts, friends, business connections, and colleagues.

 

The event includes a one-hour VIP Sponsor Reception prior to the luncheon providing an intimate environment for networking with our VIP sponsors and our featured speaker. After the VIP Sponsor Reception, attendees will enjoy a seated lunch overlooking the Miami skyline while South Florida’s Laurie Jennings interviews our featured speaker, Kate Hudson, on stage about her new lifestyle book, business, and professional success. The event will conclude with the presentation of the 2015-2016 IBWOY Awards to our three distinguished winners.

 

Proceeds from this event will fund scholarships for women at South Florida universities studying international business or trade.
