“This reception is our way of celebrating and bringing together all of the incredible people we’ve worked with in New York over the years, while partnering with organizations that have been instrumental in our success along the way,” states Matthew Skallerud, President of Pink Banana Media. “If you’re coming to New York City for the upcoming IGLTA 36th Anniversary Convention April 24-27, 2019, we invite you to join us, where you’ll meet some incredible LGBTQ movers and shakers in the local New York City business community, as well as LGBTQ Influencers and other new media individuals who have become ever-more relevant in 2019.”
“As a pillar of the downtown community and a destination for global travelers, we are honored to partner with Pink Banana Media to host members and friends of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association at the 2nd Annual Pre-Conference Reception,” said Keith Douglas, Managing Director of One World Observatory. “We are excited to be among the hundreds of businesses to not only attend the conference but host the reception.
