VAX Launches Gay Travel Showcase

VAX VacationAccess has launched the Gay Travel Showcase, designed to help agents sell more effectively to their LGBT clients.

Managed in cooperation with long-time gay travel expert Charlie Rounds, the site features the latest in LGBT travel trends, a list of travel suppliers, tour operators and destinations that are selling to this market and paying travel agent commissions, as well as a calendar of worldwide LGBT events, many that may be bookable on VAX.

In addition to weekly blogs by Rounds, travel agent training, wedding/honeymoon resources and gay-friendly destination information, the Gay Travel Showcase will include offers by suppliers serving the gay and lesbian traveler.

“Many companies have tried to reach out to LGBT travelers through their own micro-sites and advertising campaigns,” says Rounds. “Now there is a place where those companies can showcase their commitment to our community and present their product to leisure-focused agents at the point of sale.”

Some of the suppliers participating in the launch of the site are Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority, Travel Gay Canada, Palace Resorts, Jupiter Hotel Portland, Maui Sunseeker Resort, and the LGBT tour operator Concierge Travel.
