Best in LGBT

  • Best in LGBT

    This award is to recognise one destination or organisation, which has demonstrated excellence with both its welcome to LGBT guests and the relevancy of its creative marketing tactics. The awarded candidate will have demonstrated outstanding initiative to appeal to and meet the needs of LGBT traveller’s best.

    Today, more destinations and organisations than ever before want to attract the valuable LGBT consumer market. With more than USD$200 billion spent each year, this is a large market, but one where the consumer exhibits some quite exacting criteria. LGBT guests are in demand and destinations that make the effort vie to be top choice for the LGBT traveller. We want to acknowledge the most outstanding LGBT-targeted campaign within the travel and tourism industry.
