We have brought together a group of workshops and keynotes that will greatly help companies understand and learn new things about each category below.

Life does not start and finish with shopping. LGBT people lead diverse and full lives with complex interactions to manage between work, home and social lives. That is not always easy and one growth area that has arisen is the increased need to be aware of workplace issues faced by LGBT people every day at the office, in the factory and on the shop floor. The importance of Diversity and Inclusion to more workplaces around the world is reflected in this specific corporate platform at the 4th International LGBT Business Expo. In addition, corporate interactions and consumer marketing affects us all - and that includes LGBT people. Delegates will gain access to some of the world\'s leading practitioners in areas including LGBT marketing, research and workplace diversity. LGBT community organizations and other NGOs are also part of this area as we help them build the bridge between organizations and LGBT people to mutual benefit. Who should attend? The Corporate platform is where business connects with business across a range of sectors, including banking, automotive, alcohol, pharmaceutical, communications - and more. Supported by the world\'s leading LGBT marketing specialists Out Now and the leading employer support group - Out & Equal, our corporate platform helps decision-makers from both marketing and human resources achieve better results from connections with LGBT people, both as workers and as customers. This platform is specifically designed for marketing and brand managers, diversity decision-makers and other business professionals. Connecting businesspeople to each other is an integral part of the LGBT Confex Corporate platform.

The LGBT community is one of the most diverse and dynamic parts of society - and as such, media in all its forms has proved to be an enormous part of the community\'s evolution from \'invisible\' to increasingly \'accepted\'. Whether as the subjects of media coverage or as journalists and producers - the LGBT community is inextricably linked to the ongoing development of media in Mexico, and right across Latin America. We are very pleased to present our LGBT Media platform specifically to provide the broadest possible strategic focus on ways that media is impacted by - and has impacted upon - the LGBT people who our events are always focused on. Who should attend? Media plays an increasingly important role in all our lives. At LGBT Confex events we bring you the key LGBT media decision-makers into one platform. With education and networking that will connect you with the leading LGBT media in Latin America, attending this platform is a must for any delegate working in a consumer-focused business.
