How ZafigoX Came About [VIDEO]

A simple question some years ago motivated Datin Paduka Marina Mahathi to create a platform geared towards female travellers. The interest it garnered culminated into a panel talk titled Intimate Conversations with Women on Travel & Culture with Zafigo founder, Marina Mahathir moderating the discussion among a panel of four speakers, all avid travellers and prolific women in their own right.

What began as an intimate conversation between women, this year, grows into a 3-day event. In conjunction with the George Town Festival 2017, one of the most exciting festivals in Southeast Asia, comes a one-of-a-kind event for women seeking to go beyond borders and boundaries. From 29th August to 31st August, attendees from all over the world will converge for inspiring talks and panel discussions by 12 international and Malaysian speakers, workshops on life and travel skills, an open-to-public bazaar showcasing women artisans and services geared towards the woman traveller and to meet with other women who share similar passions.
