The Women in Travel Summit '17 will be held at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center Hotel from April 21 to 23 in Downtown Milwaukee. WITS is the creation of Wanderful, an international community and online resource for women who travel.

It's a big event for Milwaukee and women travel influencers, creators and brands. Its goal is to provide women travelers with the tools, connections and resources they need to become better travel bloggers and entrepreneurs while growing its global sisterhood of dedicated women who travel.

Oneika Raymond, the voice behind Oneika the Traveller, an award-winning travel blog dedicated to inspiring, encouraging and empowering women and people of color to see the world, will serve as one of this year's keynote speakers.

An international educator, writer, serial expat and travel junkie, Oneika's passion for discovery is boundless and her adventures abroad have taken her to over 90 countries on six continents. Oneika has written for and been featured in major publications such as Condé Nast Traveler, the BBC, The Huffington Post, Essence, Ebony, National Geographic Traveler, BuzzFeed and CNN.

Approximately 400 attendees joined WITS ’16 this last March in Irvine, California, with speakers from around the world. WITS ’17 expects an even greater turnout international travel influencers, creators and industry executives this week in Milwaukee.
