It’s official the candidacy of Milan to host the 37th Convention IGLTA, International Association for Gay & Lesbian Tourism, planned for 2020.

The location of the annual congress that will involve more than 400 international tourist operators will be selected by December 15th among Milan, London, Bruxelles, Tel Aviv, Bogotà and Sydney. To support the candidacy of Milan, the National Agency for Tourism (ENIT), the City of Milan and Italian Association for Tourism (AITGL); among their main commitments, the sponsorization of the gala dinner closing the 2019 Convention in New York and the opening cocktail reception in Milan in 2020.

The location selected to host the congress is AtaHotel Expo Fiera. Milan’s candidacy got an endorsement from the US Consulate in Milan, VisitUSA Italia, European Travel Commission, San Francisco Travel Association and Arcigay of Milan.

“Our Country is already a winner -said Local Committee’s President, Alessio Virgili-. Milan understood right away not only the social and cultural importance but also the economic impact of this market (estimated 2.7 billion) and with 35 million international arrivals throughout the year around the world. The entrance in May of ENIT as member of IGLTA is not to be underestimated: a strong message that strengthens a gay friendly image of the Country versus the conservative one that makes Italy go down to number five among LGBT travelers’ choice, even if number one in preference”.
