About Our Conferences

Estimates of attendance and other marketing-related information

The audience to our most recent NYC event ranged from small businesses (we teamed up with the NGLCC-NY and other NYC LGBT business organizations in this segment) to larger corporate attendees including Toyota (from Los Angeles), Schwab, Prudential, American Airlines, Hilton, WNBA, Google and more. We expect a similar range of attendees in this expanded week-long format.

Our target markets are businesses large and small wishing to better understand, and make successful outreach to LGBT consumers. These businesses include participants from the corporate world, either looking to enter the LGBT market or to enhance their current outreach efforts in targeting the LGBT community. Individual participation also ranges from realtors to restaurant owners, retailers to event promoters. Also included in this mix are marketing, advertising and PR professionals looking to include the LGBT community on behalf of their clients' outreach.

Working together with partner LGBT organizations, we had a modest 1st year attendance of 350 for the LGBT Marketing, Advertising & Technology Week NYC event in 2015. We anticipate 500-750 for 2016. This estimate is based on our event history, along with the size and typical attendance of the partner LGBT organizations' events we're working with in 2016. It is also based on the additional draw both an expanded conference itinerary and higher caliber speakers brings to this week-long event.

We expect a similar range of attendees at our 1-day events as well, working with the local LGBT Chamber of Commerce to ensure that all businesses large and small in their respective areas are encouraged and able to attend. Our corporate contacts will be invited, and we anticipate an attendance of approximately 150-250.

In addition to the daytime events and conferences held during this week, evening receptions and networking mixers are planned as well, including those hosted by partners.

These conferences will be heavily promoted throughout the year via direct e-mail, LinkedIn, and various social media LGBT business-to-business groups on Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Twitter and more. The marketing strategy will not only include general, day- and event-specific marketing outreach, but also marketing outreach based on individual speakers, tapping into their networks of fans and influencers to broaden this conference's overall reach.

Event partners will also be promoting these conferences, in conjunction with their events held during this time (for the week-long events in NYC). We also plan on our local partners, including our local LGBT Chamber partner, to promote this event to their membership base as well.
