Launched in 2017, ZafigoX is the first event in Asia dedicated to women empowerment and travel, where women come together to discover, learn, meet, and be inspired.

Travel – especially solo travel – empowers women to be independent and stronger. It teaches them about themselves as well as the world around them. Women have to look out for many things that men don’t. This is especially so in Asia and the Middle East, where social and cultural norms that affect women vary from country to country.

ZafigoX aspires to help women discover what they are capable of through their journeys and to ultimately inspire themselves and everyone around them.

Held at The Gardens Hotel Kuala Lumpur this November over 3 days, this year’s edition of ZafigoX will feature:

ZafigoX Talks - 12 Informative and inspiring talks and discussions on overcoming barriers for women and empowerment through travel.

ZafigoX Workshops - Workshops on life skills for women travellers to travel better, easier, safer and discover.

ZafigoX Marketplace - A marketplace featuring performances, women artisans and products/services for women travellers.

Drawing participation and attendees from all over the world, ZafigoX looks to share powerful lessons of how pushing geographical barriers through travel helps to push our own personal boundaries, in turn empowering us with the confidence to live the lives we truly want.

“You will love the ZafigoX experience. I wanted an event like ZafigoX for a long time. In the end, I decided to create it and share this initiative with like-minded women. There will be laughter and tears and hopefully a little enlightenment amidst the most amazing, non-judgemental and supportive group you could wish for”, says Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, Founder of ZafigoX.
