#IBWTJ22✈️ Speakers!

Sign Up for Virtual Meetings with Brands

If you’re a content creator or aspiring, you’re able to meet one-on-one with brands who sign up for meetings. Last year the ladies met with Travel + Leisure and Fodor’s Travel and went on to publish some of their first travel writing pieces! The brands this year are looking for diverse representation among Black women travelers-LGBTQIA, disabled, solo travel, family travel, budget and luxury etc.

It’s a great day to believe in yourself and get your voice out there.

Sign up to meet with this year’s brands and get access to the workshop How to Successfully Collaborate with Brands taught by the former Senior Editor of Travel Noire, DeAnna Taylor.

Participate as a Brand or a Sponsor!

Who Should Attend?

You don’t have to have a business, or an audience, or be a well-traveled traveler. You don’t have to be an extrovert or have your whole life figured out.

This conference is for Black women who’ve been to their 3rd or 80th country. Many who are drawn to our community are curious travelers, content creators, expats, digital nomads, interested in taking a sabbatical, or aspiring to any of the above.

We are women who embrace our true selves and are making moves to live life on our own terms.

This room was built for you to thrive.

You don’t have to do this alone, or with people who are half-invested in your success. We’d love to provide that space for you to see yourself and give yourself permission to truly go after your travel, wellness, and entrepreneur goals.

Grateful for our 2022 sponsor Moon Travel Guides!

Here’s their story

Moon Travel Guides was founded in 1973 with a mission to advocate for independent, active, and conscious travel. They started out with guides to Asia printed by founder Bill Dalton on a Xerox machine (yes, really)—and nowadays, they’re the #1 publisher of travel guides to the Americas and have expanded their coverage globally. They’re published by Avalon Travel, a Hachette Book Group company. Their team is comprised of experienced editors, designers, cartographers, and marketers who ensure that their books are easy-to-use and reflect their brand values. Their program is simple:

Wherever they cover, they prioritize local businesses, outdoor recreation, and traveling strategically and sustainably.

They look for authentic voices: authors who share those values and are excited to share their destinations with the world. They have a continued commitment to diversity and representation which you can read about on their website.

Let’s talk about those authors

Moon authors are experts who have a passion for their destinations. They are culturally and politically aware, adventurous, and inspiring. They all have great stories to tell. Nearly all of them live in the destinations they write about; if they don’t, they’ve spent a significant amount of time there. Their authors experience places the same way their readers do: firsthand. This makes it possible for Moon to deliver information that’s up-to-date, reliable, and entertaining.

How do they decide what to include in a guide?

Their guidebooks cover destinations often overlooked by other publishers—like Oaxaca, the U.S. Civil Rights Trail, or the Camino de Santiago. They are designed for active, ethically minded travelers. They know that every travel publisher says they’ll guide you to the off-the-beaten-path spots, but Moon guides really will.

Moon Travel Guides are meant to read like notes from a trusted friend: Their authors let you in on their favorite places, like a secluded beach on the Amalfi Coast, a locally-loved bar in Mexico City, or a less-crowded hiking trail in Glacier National Park. All recommendations, including those for sights, activities, hotels, restaurants, and shops, are based on each author’s individual judgment, with guidance from their editors. Even when they cover famous sights, their books reveal strategies for how to have the most local experience possible.

That being said: They always do their best not to steer people toward places that are offensive, problematic, or otherwise incongruent with their values. They want to be held accountable to those standards, and they encourage your feedback.

Head to Moon Travel Guides to see what they’re up to, and let them know IBWTJ sent you!
