  • We're excited to share the success of our SECOND IGLTA Foundation LGBTQ+ Symposium in India, building on the achievements of our inaugural event. Held in collaboration with esteemed partners and sponsors, this symposium continued our mission to promote inclusivity within the Indian tourism industry.

    Bringing together a diverse range of stakeholders, including members of the IGLTA team, thought leaders, and representatives from Indian tourism and tech businesses, our goal was to explore the immense potential of LGBTQ+ tourism in and out of India. Through insightful discussions, educational sessions, and valuable networking opportunities at the prestigious Lalit New Delhi, participants gained the tools and knowledge to create truly inclusive travel experiences.

    We thank all who helped make this event a success, paving the way for a more inclusive future in LGBTQ+ tourism in India and beyond. Stay tuned for updates and resources as we share insights with our global community. Thank you for joining us on this historic journey.
