Published on : Saturday, January 18, 2014

lgbtRegistration is live for the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association’s 31st Annual Global Convention, set for May 8-10 in Madrid. It is the association’s first time to hold its premier educational and networking event in Spain.

This year, IGLTA debuts an appointment-driven buyer-supplier marketplace to better facilitate meetings between tourism professionals interested in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender market. Buyers may apply to receive free registration to the convention and a table for the five-hour marketplace on opening day where they will have pre-booked meetings with suppliers.

“We’re incredibly excited to bring our convention to Spain – a country known for its progressive LGBT rights – and to the beautiful region of Madrid,” IGLTA President/CEO John Tanzella says. “And, it’s an important step forward for the association to launch an appointment-driven buyer-supplier marketplace this year. Our attendees have requested this as a way to improve upon the quality networking opportunities we already offer.”

IGLTA’s convention will also feature:

Keynote presentation from the World Travel & Tourism Council and the United Nations World Tourism Organization
Media Trade Show showcasing global LGBT media brands

Unique Destinations Showcase for emerging LGBT destinations

Educational sessions on advanced social media strategies, the same-sex wedding market, LGBT travel history/trends, lesbian outreach
