Vallarta Hosts Fourth LGBT International Business Expo

April 21, 2014

The Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit edition of the International LGBT Business Expo is scheduled to be held at CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort and Spa, June 12-14, 2014.

New York, USA 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, scheduled to be held at CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort and Spa, June 12-14, 2014.

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 6% 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, and the Czech Republic leading the way, along with the corporate offices of the Hard Rock Hotel and Marriott International. Mexican Tour Operators DiverCity and Leemba Travel will also be participating.

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

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 Turistico, where the LGBT Expo will be presented to attending trade and media. ENroute Communications, a PR and representation firm based in New York, is heading the expo's initiatives in the United States and Canada and has launched the RFP for 2015 and 2016.

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


Latin America's leading LGBT conferences and Exhibitions Company is LGBT Confex. Established in 2011, the organization has quickly demonstrated its capabilities to put together a professional team with staff that brings many years in event management expertise. Following the success of their inaugural event in 2011, LGBT Confex doubled in scale with its 2012 edition in Cancun and continued its growth in 2013's International LGBT Business Expo in Guadalajara, Mexico.
