FLOCC Invites the Travel Industry to “Unite, Evolve, and Flourish”

The Florida Out Coast Convention (FLOCC) invites the travel industry to “unite, evolve and flourish” this August 12th through 14th in Coral Gables!

The Florida Out Coast Convention is the only conference focused on the LGBTQ+ tourism industry in Florida. Destination leaders, agencies and tourism professionals both within and outside of Florida are invited to attend to participate in conversations on how to effectively and authentically reach, support and better understand the LGBTQ+ traveler. This year’s convention is expected to attract over 250 attendees, 30+ speakers and over 25 destinations represented.

There is no denying that it continues to be a critical time in Florida and throughout the US for LGBTQ+ community members and travelers. Given that travel advisories are on the minds of tourism leaders throughout the country, there is no better time to ‘FLOCC’ together to learn, network and strategize.

If you are a destination marketing organization, hotel, attraction, business owner, LGBTQ+ organization, travel planner, influencer, media member or chamber and have a vested interest in supporting and learning about inclusive tourism, then this convention is for you!

In addition to the networking opportunities FLOCC will help you to: determine if your destination or tourism business is properly inclusive, help you market to LGBTQ+ consumers, clarify the confusing LGBTQ+ legislation that has been enacted in Florida, and better inform you on the inclusive travel experiences currently available in the Sunshine State.

Registered participants will also be treated to entertainment, special appearances, culinary delights, and an awards presentation recognizing the accomplishments of inclusive tourism leaders, marketing and LGBTQ+ organizations throughout Florida.

Early registration is now open! From now until May 31st save $100 on registration fees and guarantee yourself a spot on this vital inclusive and informative gathering of the LGBTQ+ focused travel industry.
