The team at GNetwork360, headed up by Pablo De Luca and Gustavo Noguera, outdid themselves this year with their 10th Anniversary LGBT International Business & Tourism Conference, held at the stately Alvear Palace Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina. With a wide range of sponsors and partners, including Delta Airlines, IBM, Argentina Tourism and the city of Buenos Aires, the week’s events brought together quite the diversity in the LGBT business community from Argentina, Latin America and from around the world.
