By Women, For Women
FAB is educational and inspirational workshops created by women, for women in the hospitality industry.

Welcome to the year better known as, RE. RE-open, RE-brand, RE-invest, RE-invent...I think you get it.
The other RE is RE-vise.
Since FAB was created four years ago, we found that the real magic of it all lies in the connections made while women from all over the country come to Charleston, and gather together both eager and ready to learn from one another. To hear about the tough shit, the wins, the losses, and the honest truth of what it takes to be in this business. These two and a half days have led to long-lasting friendships, mentorships, kinships, new businesses, crazy-unique partnerships, and collaborations that cross boundaries.
As the country went into quarantine in March (just 10 days after the 2020 ticket sales launched), we decided to push the date of the workshop to October. But so much has happened since then, and our industry has been rocked harder than most. We can’t in good faith sell tickets to an in-person workshop this fall, as it’s our responsibility to not gather in large groups, even though we ALL need to be surrounded by one another more than anything right now! We're also keenly aware of the financial hardships you’re all facing, which will likely continue.
So while this ROYALLY SUCKS to share, we have made the difficult decision that FAB will not convene in person this year. Instead, we’re shifting gears (for the life of me I can't use the word pivot anymore) and are in the midst of planning an all-digital format. We are crafting it now and will begin this summer. We have always relied on you, our audience, to keep us informed of topics and issues that are important to you, and now are asking for your help.
Even if we can’t get together in person — we can still share our stories and work together to find some creative solutions to navigate lives during and after the pandemic. We are resilient, ingenious, hard working and incredibly smart and will rise above, together.
“Remember, Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.”
Thank you for your past, present, and future support of FAB, and of each other. We'll see you in person June of 2021 and on a web gathering soon.
The real power of FAB comes from its intimate, must-see/hear/meet format.
The simple act of bringing women together to inspire, support, educate, empower, and activate one another in an industry designed around serving others is in and of itself a triumph, a nurturing and revolutionary act, which, in turn, inspires others.
