Dubai Tourism’s senior manager Ingrid Aagesen and Virgin Holidays’ managing director Amanda Wills are among nominees already entered into the Women 1st Top 100 Most Influential Women listing and Shine Awards.

The results will be announced on 31 March at an awards ceremony at the Savoy hotel.

Sodexo’s UK and Ireland HR director Natalie Bickford, who is chair of Women 1st, said: "David Cameron too has acknowledged the vital role the hospitality and tourism industry will play in driving the country’s economy forward.  It is paramount that we as an industry develop and retain the best talent – whether male or female. Showcasing women who have worked hard to achieve their career aspirations in our amazing industry will hopefully inspire countless others to emulate that success."

Nominations can be made at the Women 1st website and the deadline for submissions is 18 February.
