Example 1:

How To Cost-Effectively Reach—and Professionally Serve the LGBT Community
This is our “LGBT Marketing 101,” a comprehensive and very practical orientation to your opportunities in the global gay market place. Discussion includes a review and interpretation of Community Marketing’s LGBT market research, including industry trends and projections. Learn what “LGBT-friendly” means, and how you can ensure that your company or organization is perceived favorably. Make your initiatives a sure success by using our marketing and publicity tips, based on over a decade of advising industry leaders. This session will be valuable to all attendees, but is especially recommended for newcomers to the LGBT market.
