The RX Africa superwomen scoop awards at Women in MICE Awards

RX Africa is proud to share that three of our very own superwomen have scooped prestigious prizes at the recent Women in MICE Awards.

The Women in MICE Awards recognise the important role that women play in meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE). The initiative aims to provide a platform that connects women within the industry, leverages their reach and resources, and motivates and inspires.   

“We have all come through an incredibly difficult period that has resulted in major losses, which has taken a serious toll on the industry as a whole. It is for this reason that we feel it is more important than ever to recognise the women who have been a beacon of hope for so many, and who have led their teams by demonstrating courage, compassion, innovation and resilience during this time,” notes Shanna Jacobsen, Managing Editor of Meetings magazine and The Planner Guru, part of the 3S Media group and the producers of the Women in MICE Awards. 

The RX Africa women received no less than four prestigious awards:   

Innovator of the Year  

  • Carol Weaving, Managing Director, RX Africa  

Health & Safety Standards Representative of the Year  

  • Carmen Wagener, Portfolio Director – Operations, RX Africa  

Industry Contribution of the Year (shared)  

  • Tes Proos, President, SITE Africa  
  • Megan Oberholzer, Portfolio Director – Travel, Tourism, and Creative Industries, RX Africa  

In addition to the prizes above, RX Africa is proud to announce their award for Enterprise Team of the Year, highlighting that these women deserve recognition for their team efforts as well as their individual achievements.   

Congratulations ladies!
