IGLTA Marketing Testimonial:Marketing the glbt travel expo tour through the IGLTA was enormously successful. This is a new event and I needed to get out the word to travel related companies throughout the world. By sponsoring the IGLTA newsletter, I was able to do that. As soon as the newsletter was sent out, I saw a four fold increase in traffic on my website. That was followed up by phone calls from companies who were interested in becoming exhibitors. My banner ads on the website were just as successful but the response more steady and long term.”
