The first LGBTQ Wedding Expo, presented in January 2012 at Brooklyn Borough Hall, was a tremendous success with thousands in attendance. Over 75 Brooklyn owned and operated vendors participated in the event including local restaurants, hotels, caterers, bakeries, photographers, jewelers, florists, clothiers, beverage distributers, travel professionals, entertainment providers and financial advisors. The event received extensive media coverage including taped segments which aired on New York 1, NBC 4 New York and BIT and press including articles in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and OUT.
The 2013 LGBTQ Wedding Expo, scheduled for Sunday January 13th from 11 AM to 6 PM, will more prominently focus on DESTINATION: BROOKLYN and encourage attendees to utilize the exceptional services of the Brooklyn business community when planning their LGBTQ nuptials. Our good friend Borough President Marty Markowitz will once again host this seminal event celebrating the rights of the LGBTQ community.
There are three ways to become a partner in Brooklyn’s LGBTQ Wedding Expo: as a Sponsor, as a Vendor or as an Advertiser.
Sponsorships are available at $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000 levels and include preferred vendor placement at the expo, prominent business logo inclusion on Wedding Expo ads and promotional materials and other exclusive perks. Vendor space is available at an early bird discount rate of $400 to $550 through November 1st only. You save $100 to $150 by booking by November 1.

The full color Expo Journal will be distributed in advance of the event throughout the borough in addition to being available the day of the event. The journal will be printed in full color glossy and feature sponsorship and vendor information and listings by category. The journal is a comprehensive and accessible directory and a must for any business interested in reaching LGBTQ consumers.
As a member of the NGLCCNY you understand the importance of the LGBTQ consumer and the well established and substantiated fact that gays support those who support them.
