On Wednesday May 2, 2013, Chicago welcomed The International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association’s Annual Global Convention for their 30th anniversary conference. The IGLTA is the world’s premier educational and networking event for the LGBT tourism industry. 

Many events and parties were planed to take place all around town. The IGLTA members are celebrating the history and accomplishments of the organization during the last 30 years, while paving the way for the continued growth for the years to come. 

United Airlines, the official sponsor of IGLTA Convention, welcomed tourism professionals from more than 20 countries. "United proudly celebrates the richness of not just our employees' diverse backgrounds, but our customers' too," said Dave Hilfman, United's senior vice president of worldwide sales, during the IGLTA press conference on Wednesday at the Willis Tower Skydeck. "As we say, diversity flies with us. And United is honored to sponsor IGLTA's convention in Chicago this year."

The 2014 convention will be held in Madrid, Spain, and the organizers are promising to rock your stay.
