LGBT Confex Business Event Set To Soar

September 2, 2013 Conferences No Comments Email Email

Just seven days remain until Latin America’s most important ever LGBT business and consumer forum commences in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

New details of the 3rd International LGBT Business Expo produced by LGBT have just been announced. It was also announced today that the exhibitor spaces on offer have sold out. The event is on track to become Latin America’s largest and most important LGBT business and consumer event and has garnered the support of many leading brands and organisations, including: American Express, IBM, American Airlines, Out & Equal, Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board, Guadalajara OVC, Jalisco Ministry of Tourism, Mexico Tourism Board, Prego Alter, Mundo Cuervo, Westin Guadalajara Hotel, and the world’s leading LGBT marketing firm – Out Now Global.

Day 3 of the event includes a focus on LGBT entrepreneurs in business as well as welcoming local people from Guadalajara’s large LGBT community to attend free to a dedicated LGBT consumer expo.

A range of prizes and giveaways are on offer to those attending including: free nights in hotels courtesy of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board where six hotels are represented. Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts offer visitors the opportunity to get free nights in resorts from Mayakoba to Cabo Marques. Visitors can also enter to win free iPads and Prego Alter have teamed up with Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board to offer a valuable contest to win a free trip to LA. Visitors can also gain free access to the event’s Closing Party by visiting the Mister App stand at the consumer expo to get their hands on free VIP access to Guadalajara’s premier nightlife venue Club Babel.The business forum part of the event features a number of specific platforms including Corporate Diversity, Travel, Tech, Entrepreneurs and LGBT Media.

Ruben Sandoval, CEO of LGBT Confex said his company is delighted to see so many participants getting ready to participate in the event which is focused on connecting business with lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.

“We are so grateful for the support of our exhibitors, our sponsors, our delegates and our conference presenters,” Sandoval says. “We have all been working for a whole year to bring this event to Guadalajara here in Jalisco state this year. It has grown so much since we launched three years ago and we are really looking forward to welcoming the local LGBT community in Guadalajara to discover how much is on offer for them. They can plan a holiday, check out the latest technology and media, as well as enter to win the great prizes our exhibitors are offering to visitors. There is a packed program on offer and the whole team at LGBT Confex is excited to be bringing the International LGBT Business Expo to Guadalajara next week.

Premier Sponsor of the Expo is Out Now who will present an Opening Keynote to conference delegates covering the latest LGBT business developments globally as well as release new preliminary Mexico research findings from their latest Out Now Global LGBT2020 Study – the world’s largest LGBT research program.

CEO of Out Now, Ian Johnson, said his company is looking forward very much to participating in the LGBT Confex event in Guadalajara this September.

“We connected with LGBT Confex at their first event back in 2011 in Puerto Vallarta,” Johnson says. “It is quite inspiring to watch the substantial growth that has taken place since then. This is due to a number of factors. Out Now last year identified the Latin America region as the key region globally for growth in LGBT market development over the next three years at least, so this event is tapping into a definite trend in the region. More than that though – and arguably most importantly – the effort, dedication and professionalism of the LGBT Confex team is key to this event being on track to being such a success this year. We have worked closely with the LGBT Confex team and it is a most inspiring thing to be a part of. Out Now is looking forward to being part of the event next week and I am personally looking forward to meeting as many delegates as possible.”

LGBT Confex presents their annual flagship event – the 3rd International LGBT Business Expo – over three days from September 5 – 7, 2013 at Expo Guadalajara, 1499 Av Mariano Otero in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Delegate registrations are open now
