Statement from the IGLTA Board of Directors: There are no more resilient, intrepid and confident travel leaders anywhere in the world than in the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association.
Therefore, we are determined to host our Annual Global Convention in
2020 in Milan. At the same time, we must be prudent and sensitive to
health and safety precautions and to the actual conditions on the
ground. We have decided to postpone our convention in Milan until this September/October.
We believe firmly in the resilience of travel and want to be part of the
industry’s recovery when COVID-19 has been contained with confidence.
We must, however, give all our participants time to prepare.
The outbreak of the coronavirus has left all of us with many unknowns.
We will announce new dates and plans as soon as possible. We will join
you in monitoring the situation closely through our Italian governmental
contacts and trusted sources such as the World Health Organization.
Since IGLTA began in 1983, our Annual Global Convention has been an
essential part of our LGBTQ+ tourism outreach and a highlight of our
year. We value facilitating the sharing of ideas among the leaders of
the tourism industry and bringing travel professionals from around the
world together for networking. We also love showcasing destinations
within our network, like this year’s host city, Milan, and we look
forward to seeing you there.
