LGBT Business Expo Attracts International Destinations to the Fourth Edition

Last year's International LGBT Business Expo

Registration for LGBT Confex’s 4th International LGBT Business Expo has ended its early-bird special period with almost 30 entities already confirmed to participate in the Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit edition. 

The International LGBT Business Expo has quickly become the leading expo for businesses interested in targeting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender consumer, an estimated six percent of Latin America travel market share.

The largest group of representatives will be the travel industry with destinations such as Las Vegas, San Francisco, Puerto Rico, Fort Lauderdale, Berlin, the Czech Republic and Riviera Nayarit leading the way, along with the corporate offices of the Hard Rock Hotels and Marriott International, with Casa Magana hosting the expo. Mexican Tour Operators DiverCity and Leemba Travel will also be participating.

Given the current state of the LGBT rights movement, a new contingent has quickly gained a place on the exhibition floor which is made up of the Human Rights Campaign, Familias Unidas law group and the USA National Gay Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).

One of the world's leading LGBT consulting and marketing company, Out Now Global, will also be returning along with Out & Equal, as well as American Express. And for the first time Google Mexico.

Others taking part in the expo include Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts, Las Alamandas Resort, Pink Banana Media, AMResorts, Casa Velas Hotel Boutique, Anticavilla Hotel, The Palm at Playa and more.

On May 7, CONFEX will be hosting a reception at the Oasis Sens Cancun as part of this year's Tianguis, where the LGBT Expo will be presented to attending trade and media. 

Full registration for exhibitors and buyers is now open at with a special $95 a night rate from Marriott Casa Magna and discounted rates from American Airline, Delta Air Lines, Alaska Airlines, Aeromexico, United and Canada Air.
