2022 LGBTQI+ U.S. – Mexico Travel & Tourism Forum   

The U.S. Commercial Service Mexico along with Brand USA, the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), and the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association (IGLTA) will host the first ever LGBTQI+ U.S. – Mexico Travel and Tourism Forum. The event will promote inclusion, economic development, and travel to the United States. Travel & Tourism represents one of the top services exports both for the United States and Mexico and its benefits reach a wide gamut of industries and subsectors. Additionally, multiple studies show that LGBTQI+ individuals are often considered strongly entrepreneurial, are usually owners of their businesses, and dedicate a significant amount of financial resources to leisure activities such as tourism. This forum represents an unparalleled opportunity to support post COVID-19 economic recovery and promote the development of minorities within the United States and Mexico.
