THE GAY BUSINESS CONFERENCE

The Conference is designed to help professionals, businesses and organisations to increase sales to gay and bisexual customers - not about academic theory but about proven business techniques and sales & marketing campaigns that work.  It is about better targeting consumers with a high level of disposable income, increasing sales and boasting profits into 2011 and beyond.

* enable delegates to meet and network with other delegates, sharing sales, marketing, customer service, product and service development, operations advice, ideas, techniques etc.
