Gay Fort Lauderdale is on the map!  For six days in May, over 700 delegates of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association will be meeting in gay Fort Lauderdale.

Getting these delegates to South Florida is a major accomplishment for South Florida and the Broward County Tourist Development Authority who realized early on the importance of getting this group to our local area.  This is going to be a huge chance for Fort Lauderdale to grow economically since this year’s global convention, Lauderdale Unleashed, will bring highly influential travel agents, tour operators and other travel hosts to our area.  Not only will they be taking care of their convention business, but word on the street is that they will also partake in all that this area has to offer.

Local businesses are already starting to prepare for their arrival by meeting weekly to plan a warm welcoming for the delegates.  Hopefully, they like what we have to offer!
