Mexico’s annual LGBT Confex will return for a two-day conference on 26-27 October: its first in Mexico City. This will be the conference’s sixth annual meeting. Previous events have taken place Puerto Vallarta, Cancún, Guadalajara, Vallarta-Nayarit and Mérida. The event has consistently grown in size, and organizers say that it now has the support of government agencies – not least since the country has become aware of the value of LGBT tourism to the country. The Mexico Ministry for Tourism has previously found that LGBT travelers spend, on average, US$1,550 (€1,383) per person, almost double the $780 (€696) average visitor spend.
