Event: Women’s Adventure Expo Takes to the Water

April 10, 2017

Now in their third year, the Women’s Adventure Expo has a new event specifically focussing on water based activities – if you want to get inspiration, learn from the pro’s and hear incredible tales from some excellent speakers then head to Bristol on April 22nd


The event will be hosted at the MShed, situated in Bristol’s historic harbour side – the perfect location! An amazing array of headline speakers will cover a wide range of water based activities. From epic ocean crossings, to swimming some of the planet’s most challenging waters. You will be inspired by adventure with boats, floats, kayaks, boards and more; or even be inspired to find your nearest spot for a wild swim.

In addition to the headline speakers the day will deliver a variety of 20 minute talks from water champions and organisations. You will have the opportunity to learn first-hand from fantastic water based projects, plus plenty of time to network and gather resources throughout the day.
