Mexico City will host LGBT Confex for first time

Mexico’s annual LGBT Confex will return for a two-day conference on 26-27 October: its first in Mexico City.

This will be the conference’s sixth annual meeting. Previous events have taken place Puerto Vallarta, Cancún, Guadalajara, Vallarta-Nayarit and Mérida.

The event has consistently grown in size, and organizers say that it now has the support of government agencies, not least since the country has become aware of the value of LGBT tourism to the country.

The conferences aim is to promote the business case for diversity and inclusion, forge alliances between both businesses and LGBT individuals, and highlight the economic power of the LGBT market.

The theme for this year’s event is Inclusive Innovation: we create, we innovate and we revolutionize.

Remember, one year ago, Mexico’s Supreme Court legalized de facto same-sex marriage.
