In what is set to be the first in a series of LGBT New Media Expo’s debuting in 2017, our event in Las Vegas, held in conjunction with the CMI Tourism & Hospitality Conference, was a success! We had exhibitors including .LGBT, IGLTA, Revry.TV, QLife Magazine, Gay.Vegas, GayVegas.com, ILoveGayPalmSprings.com, GayDesertGuide.com, Here Media, Q.Digital, Remember Cuba, Man About World, Blu Magazine, JoshRimer.com and our company, Pink Banana Media. The folks who developed the “Socio – Shake and Connect” app were there as well, helping our attendees and exhibitors connect like never before!

The concept and idea were to create an event and a venue from which CMI conference attendees, as well as local Las Vegas advertising & marketing professionals, could interact and “talk shop” with the various LGBT influencers and media attending the conference, in ways that are never quite as easy when simply networking and attending a conference or event itself.
In attendance were some of the various destination and tourism attendees of the CMI conference, as well as local LGBT advertising & marketing folks local to Las Vegas.
We also had a variety of workshops scheduled, where the discussions focused on LGBT new media, influencers and online video. We ran a workshop entitled “Hey Las Vegas, Do You Speak Twitter (and Instagram)” that was well attended as well.

The next event will be held as part of LGBT Week NYC May 15-19, 2017 in New York City (www.LGBTWeek.NYC).
We look forward to seeing you all next year!
