Big Gay Business Forecast for Canada
It is important for the tourism industry to begin planning how they will leverage and accommodate the millions of visitors WorldPride 2014 will bring to our region. This is one of the largest LGBT events in Canada’s history and the first-ever North American stop, the positive economic spin-offs that will stem from it cannot be underestimated.
TGC’s October conference will educate and inspire tourism-related organizations to prepare for what many organizers are describing as a once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity.
