2024 Florida OutCoast Convention Flocks to Coral Gables with Amplified Focus on Meetings & Events

Join the FLOCC this August at Florida's only statewide LGBTQ+ tourism convention.
 
CORAL GABLES, Fla. - March 1, 2024 - PRLog -- The Florida OutCoast Convention (FLOCC) is set to take place at the Coral Gables Loews from August 12-14, 2024. This year, the statewide LGBTQ+ tourism gathering broadens its scope, placing a special emphasis on meeting planning and events within the tourism sector, inviting event hosts, sports professionals, meeting planning experts and LGBTQ+ Pride organization leaders into discussions on travel advisories, the impact of LGBTQ+ tourism, and the needs of LGBTQ+ travelers.

"The 2024 FLOCC is dedicated to creating a space where professionals from various aspects of LGBTQ+ tourism can come together in a safe and welcoming space for discussions not currently being had at the state level," said Rachel Covello, Publisher of OutCoast.com and host of the FLOCC. "Our aim is to encourage collaboration, share insights, and address challenges in the industry."

The convention will feature a range of sessions, including keynote speeches, discussion panels, and workshops. These sessions will cover diverse topics relevant to LGBTQ+ tourism, with particular attention to the dynamics and challenges of marketing, meeting planning, and selling in socially divisive destinations. The event will also offer opportunities for networking and showcasing services and products in the exhibit hall.

Flamboyance, the convention's annual awards gala honoring LGBTQ+ leaders, allies and tourism professionals, will take place onsite on Tuesday evening, August 13th.

FLOCC 2024 is ideal for meeting planners, CVB sales teams, LGBTQ+ event organizers, Pride leaders, sporting event organizers, marketing agencies and professionals from destination marketing organizations, hotels, tourist attractions, and related fields.

Registration is now open, and details on pricing and scheduling are available on the convention website, https://www.flocc.lgbt/.

Speakers, emcees and discussion topics will be announced in coming months. Experts can apply to speak through the convention website.

Attendees requiring accommodations can take advantage of a special rate at the Coral Gables Loews, available through the convention website.

The convention is hosted by OutCoast Events LLC, a Florida-based LGBTQ+ event planning organization, and supported by OutCoast LLC, Florida's travel blog that highlights the best events and most LGBTQ-inclusive places to visit and live in the sunshine state.

The inaugural FLOCC convention is supported by the generosity of its sponsors.
