FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (16 August 2016)— The International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association is now accepting applications for its fourth annual Buyer/Supplier Marketplace, the only global appointment-driven LGBT networking event of its kind for LGBT tourism. Held in conjunction with the IGLTA Annual Global Convention, it creates one-on-one timed meetings between leaders in outbound LGBT tourism bookings and LGBT-welcoming travel providers.
Approved buyers receive complimentary registration to the three-day IGLTA convention, including all educational sessions and evening networking events, in addition to the marketplace. The 2017 Annual Global Convention will be held 3-6 May in St. Petersburg, Florida at the Renaissance Vinoy St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club.
“Our Buyer/Supplier Marketplace has proven to be an extremely popular addition to the convention as our members are always looking for more ways to generate direct LGBT business,” IGLTA President/CEO John Tanzella said. “We expect the 2017 marketplace to be the largest yet.”
