We all live in a world that is changing rapidly. New markets. New information. New competitive threats.
One of the largest new opportunities to have arisen in recent years is the emergence of a large and viable market of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender consumers.
Accounting for at least 6% of the global tourism market, there has been a need for improved access and understanding of this valuable group of consumers right around the world.
The problem is that while awareness and interest in this market has increased - the available knowledge and resource base has not improved to keep pace with the increased need for business to understand how to better connect with their LGBT customers. Until now.
Welcome to Out Now Business Class
We think that business deserves a better way of understanding LGBT people and making connections that allow businesses to network with each other, across markets and with LGBT customers - wherever they may live.
Out Now is the global pioneer of LGBT market development and we are pleased to welcome business to the new B2B LGBT paradigm - Out Now Business Class.
To get things right you need to understand how the consumer sees their life - and understand how your product fits.
You need to connect with other businesses and suppliers that can help you join the dots to get your product in front of, and into the hands of, LGBT people.
To best understand how to build your market share you need to stay up-to-date and on trend.
Well now you can.

You get access to the world's leading LGBT B2B network for no charge. ONBC does not think the industry should be expected to pay annual membership fees to educate, network and connect to do business with other travel association members. So we have removed the cost for annual membership in ONBC. We have built the world’s best travel association network for LGBT tourism development and we are delighted to open our global ONBC system for the industry to join and unlock the best ways to increase sales in LGBT travel.
