Gay and Lesbain Tourism Australia (GALTA) will be representing its members and promoting inbound tourism to Australia from the worldwide LGBTI+ community this week in New York.
Some 700 delegates from some 50 countries have registered to attend the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association (IGLTA) 36th Annual Global Convention. To be held at the New York Hotel Midtown, this is regarded as the world’s premier educational and networking event for LGBT+ tourism professionals.
Of particular interest to the Australian Tourism industry will be the information session on the emerging Asian middle-class LGBTQ+ community to be presented by Kenneth Kwok, founder or Global Citizen Capital.
According to Mr Kwok “Asia, a beautiful community of more than 20 countries and home to 3.5 billion people are on the brink of a broad-based revolution for the LGBT+ community.” This will directly relate to their travel plans.
GALTA will be represented by one of its Directors, Rod Stringer a long time attendee at these events. “We look forward to flying the flag for Australia and keeping us in the minds and travel plans of the millions of LGBTQ+ travelers worldwide,” said Mr Stringer.
