FITUR Gay (LGBT +)
The Gay (LGBT+) segment accounts for more than 10% of tourists worldwide and approximately 16% of total travel spending. That’s more than $195 billion a year in spending according to the World Travel & Tourism Council.
FITUR Gay (LGBT+), after nine editions, has become a leading event in the field among the main international tourism fairs.
There is evidence of a growing demand for destinations, companies, hotel chains, airlines and tour operators who, with an increased awareness about inclusion, aim to focus on the LGBT segment, which has greater purchasing power as it has greater disposable income and is one of the least seasonal tourism segments.
The exhibition area of this section highlights the increasing internationalisation of major destinations and companies. At the same time, the event completes its offering with technical sessions and a recreational programme over the weekend.
