Advancing Women’s Leadership and Championing Equality Worldwide

The International Women’s Forum (IWF) is an exclusive, invitation-only network of more than 8,000 distinguished women leaders across 33 countries and 76 local forums. Its unique purpose is to connect women leaders from diverse professional sectors to support one another and the mission of advancing women’s leadership and championing equality worldwide. The IWF delivers engagement on an unprecedented scale, connecting C-level women across various countries and careers.

Bluewater was honored to support the 2023 International Women’s Forum (IWF) World Leadership Conference & Gala which was held in Detroit from October 4th to 6th. This event welcomed more than 700 leaders from 22 countries who gathered to reflect on how creativity and culture shape our economy and our world.

Bluewater played a vital role in ensuring the success of the IWF World Leadership Conference & Gala. Our Meetings & Events team provided comprehensive staging, audio, video, and lighting support for the event’s General Sessions and four simultaneous breakout rooms. Moreover, Bluewater extended its expertise to cover audio and video support for several ancillary events across the hotel property and at a separate gathering hosted at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

As the conference came to an end, Bluewater demonstrated its versatility by seamlessly converting the General Session space into an extravagant Gala. This transformation included full audio support for a 16-piece Motown band and a grand piano, adding a touch of elegance and entertainment to the evening. Bluewater also provided audio support for members of the Detroit Opera, who delivered a mesmerizing performance, making the Gala an unforgettable experience.

“The talented team of professionals at Bluewater truly helped bring our Detroit World Leadership Conference to life. Their technical coordination across multiple sessions and locations was extremely well done and resulted in a seamless production that left a very positive impression on our members.” – Stephanie Mathews O’Keefe, CEO, International Women’s Forum
