How can we collectively and individually make LGBTQ+ guests and customers feel more welcomed? What are best practices for marketing to and engaging with diverse consumers and communities? And: What does the "+" in "LGBTQ+" even mean?
View a recording of "Everyone Welcome," the LGBTQ+ Diverse Audience Training session that took place on March 30, presented by the founders of HospitableMe, a global leader in inclusive hospitality, and hosted by Explore Asheville.
Explore Asheville engaged with HospitableMe to accelerate our community’s efforts to extend a genuine invitation to diverse audiences. The powerful presentation for our internal team and tourism partners by the co-founders of HospitableMe, Billy Kolber and Kenny Porpora, was informative, thought-provoking, and at times had the audience in tears.
