The ALVA Experience is the first event of its kind in Newport, RI. Our mission is to empower and inspire women to thrive personally and professionally through education, connection, and celebration. Our goal is to welcome women to the region to enjoy this day at Hotel Viking including breakfast, lunch, keynote speakers and seminars, as well as educational workshops of their choice. Then, Let’s Rally! at Marble House, the former home of Alva Vanderbilt Belmont herself, in celebration of 100 years of Women’s Suffrage.
