• What it's about

    PROUD Experiences is the first of its kind. An international three-day event bringing together travel suppliers and buyers as well as lifestyle brands targeting the LGBTQ+ community.

    Back in New York City for 2020, you’ll have the chance to meet with your peers through Pre-Scheduled Appointments, matching you to buyers and suppliers that fulfil your aspirations. You’ll hear from influential people who can pass on some great lessons, enabling you to avoid the mistakes of brands who have ‘superficially’ tried to break into the LGBTQ+ market.

    With limited places, the lucky few will develop business, strategies and creative ideas to better serve this fast growing market.

    • Thank you for a very informative and productive show. I thought the time was very well spent and I learned quite a bit. Left with many answers but also with a lot of new questions about the best way to market to the LGBTQ+ community.
