The LGBT Tourism Forum, which took place in São Paulo Hotel Meliá Paulista, promoted the training of travel agents regarding the segment, which grows at a faster rate than conventional tourism. Promoted by the Brazilian Association of LGBT Tourism (ABTLGBT) and ViaG Magazine, the event featured panels that discussed topics such as hospitality, and workshops. GFLL was one of the main sponsors. The event included several speakers from all over the world, but the highlight was Richard Gray who brilliantly exposed the success of LGTB segment in GFLL. A total of 63 travel agencies was present at his seminar.
