In lieu of one annual expo, the "GLBT Travel Expo" goes on tour each year to hold trade shows in several cities across America. Connextions Magazine attended the expo held in New York City, at NYU on April 28th, 2013.
Before opening doors to attendees, I engaged in conversation with some of the other exhibitors and we all expressed concern that due to the gorgeous spring day, the visitor count may be decreased. But to our surprise --this was not the case!
I spent all 5-hours of this trade show, talking shop with visitors to my booth. There was a non-stop flow of people, but never so over-crowded that my conversations were cut short or I wasn't able to give my full attention to each visitor.
The expo remained true to its purpose -- A trade show dedicated to businesses in the gay-friendly travel industry. No other distracting events took place during the show, which gave exhibitors an opportunity to truly market their product or services in a targeted environment.
Kudos to Steven Levenberg for a well-thought and well-designed travel expo for the glbt community. Looking forward to our next one!
