The Enterprising Women of the Year Awards is the magazine’s annual celebration of the world’s top women entrepreneurs. Nominations for this prestigious award are submitted each Fall. The event draws heavy interest from the magazine’s readership and allows us to shine the spotlight on a remarkable group of outstanding women. The top organizations for women entrepreneurs partner with us to help assure wide support for this outstanding annual event.

The event is co-hosted by some of the country’s top corporations. It generates international media attention for the award winners and sponsoring companies who are a part of this very special event. Now in its 20th year, the program recognizes top women entrepreneurs in categories that include women business owners with revenues up to $1 million annually, over $1 million and up to $5 million, over $5 million and up to $10 million, over $10 million and up to $25 million, over $25 million and up to $100 million, and over $100 million in annual revenues. We recognized 100 outstanding women at our 2021 event. We have also inducted 50 women into the Enterprising Women Hall of Fame over the past 20 years and have presented a number of Advocacy Awards to nonprofit organizations and other advocates deserving of recognition.

We recommend you book your flight to Tampa International Airport, which is approximately a 30-minute shuttle ride to Clearwater Beach.

Transportation from Tampa International Airport to Clearwater Beach and the Wyndham Grand Hotel
The hotel is approximately 35 minutes from Tampa International Airport. The hotel recommends Olympus Limo for group transportation. www.olympuslimo.com or call 727-842-3522. Fares are not per person, but rather by the vehicle so if you have more than one person in your party this may be the most economical. A sedan for two people is $101, an SUV that holds five people is $115 and a van that holds 10 people is $205. Uber fares appear to be about $46. Other transportation options may be available and you can inquire at the information desk at the airport as well for van shuttle services that go to Clearwater Beach.


We recommend resort casual for the Sunday evening reception and dinner, business attire for the Monday and Tuesday daytime programs, resort casual for the Monday evening reception, and semi-formal for the Tuesday evening Gala Dinner (dressy suit, cocktail dress, or long dress if you prefer). For men, coat, and tie (black tie not required).


The average temperature for the Tampa, Florida area in October is a high of 78 degrees and a low of 61 degrees.  We recommend a sweater or light jacket for the evening reception.
