10 Practical Tips for Working with LGBT Influencers

We recently attended the LGBT New Media Trade Show & Expo held at The Vdara Hotel Las Vegas in December

The trade show was a great mix of cutting-edge LGBT New Media companies and influencers. This trade show and expo was open to all LGBT media that had a strong online or mobile app presence, including those with a focus on bloggers, YouTube content creators and other LGBT influencers.

As part of the trade show we had the opportunity to present a session giving travel industry professionals tips on working with LGBT influencers.  Interested in working with LGBT influencers on a campaign to help promote your brand, business or destination?
