TTG Media is excited to announce chief executive of Manchester Pride Mark Fletcher will be the keynote speaker at this year’s TTG LGBT Seminar.
Fletcher began his journey with Manchester Pride in 2004, taking on the role of freelance sponsorship manager. However, his passion as an LGBT+ activist pushed him to focus all his energy on the charity and in 2014 Fletcher was appointed chief executive of Manchester Pride.
As keynote speaker at the TTG LGBT Seminar, Fletcher will discuss his journey, the importance of Manchester Pride and how he believes Pride will continue to evolve in the future.
This year’s TTG LGBT Seminar, which is sponsored by the Malta Tourism Authority, features a new line-up of speakers, with exclusive research revealed in partnership with Gaydio, case studies, destinations in the spotlight and top marketing advice.
It is the first time the seminar, which takes place on the afternoon of Thursday 22 August, has been held in the city and it is designed to kickstart celebrations for Manchester Pride, which starts on the Friday.
The TTG LGBT Seminar will also be followed by Manchester Travel Pride in the evening, celebrating diversity and equality in travel.
Sophie Griffiths, founder of TTG LGBT said: “With TTG’s focus on diversity, we’re thrilled to be taking the TTG LGBT Seminar out of London this year and bringing it to Manchester.
“We’ve worked hard to create entirely new sessions about destinations targeting LGBT+ travellers, helpful marketing tips for agents and tour operators wanting to appeal to the LGBT+ community and new case studies from travel firms who have started out on their LGBT+ journey. We look forward to welcoming our TTG readers in the north to this exciting new event!”
