Gay or LGBTQ + European tourism is a tourism segment that caters mainly to Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer people, preferring companies, services and tourist destinations that openly welcome these travelers. DMA International, the video production company headquartered in Italy and operating throughout the European countries, is the winner of our LGBTQ+ Welcome Award Italy for openly welcoming Gay film productions as well as for servicing Gay weddings, parties, events with memorable films.
In Italy only, it is estimated that LGBTQ+ Tourism, events and activities is worth well over 3 billion euros (sources: AITGL – Italian Association of Gay & Lesbian Tourism and Sonders&Beach). LGBTQ + people also have on average an income 38% higher than heterosexuals with a high annual frequency of trips carried out for pleasure and for business as well as often dual income couples with no kids (DINK – Double Incomes no Kids), very careful in choosing companies and services that reflect and take care of their values.
Starting this year, our magazine confers this symbolic award to those companies or individuals that have shown particular openness and availability towards the interests, motivations and needs of the LGBTQ + community.
DMA International is a movie production company that ranges from TV spots, corporate videos, luxury wedding videos and Infomercials to feature films. The company is headquartered in Italy and operates globally.
