Gayvan.com Travel Marketing has published the 11th annual Gay Friendly Vancouver – In Town Guide, for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgendered (LGBT) summer travelers to the Vancouver region, including Whistler, Victoria and Seattle. A free mobile app also offers information for mobile devices.
Marketing to the LGBT traveler has skyrocketed, with destinations worldwide now courting this travel segment, so it is essential to have current resources, social media connections and the latest technology on offer to attract the discerning LGBT traveler. It has been estimated that the LGBT travel segment represents a multi-billion dollar market worldwide annually.
“Vancouver, Whistler, Victoria and the surrounding region have been active and visible in the international LGBT travel segment since the nineteen nineties and continue to showcase the destination as an LGBT welcoming place to visit,” states Angus Praught, owner of Gayvan.com Travel Marketing. “We created a comprehensive hand-held print guide over a decade ago, for the convenience of LGBT travelers to our region. The digital editions, social media networking and mobile app are ongoing endeavours that keep us within easy access of the tech-savvy gay traveler.”
At Gayvan.com, visitors can access local resources, as well as social media options such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Blogger and Pinterest, bringing together residents, businesses and international LGBT travelers.
