Converge Orlando, Inc. is the official LGBT Convention & Visitors Bureau for Orlando and Central Florida, doing business as OrlandoGayTravel.com. We are a Florida non-profit 501 c6 (pending) public membership corporation made up of gay and lesbian professionals, governed by a Board of Directors representing many government and business interests.
Converge Orlando is part of the MBA family (the LGBT Chamber of Commerce) although governed by a separate board and separate bylaws. We fully cooperate with other destination travel and tourism organizations, including Visit Orlando, the Kissimmee and Seminole County Convention and Visitors Bureaus, Visit Florida and the Central Florida Sports Commission.
The mission of Converge is to promote Orlando to the LGBT traveler. We host familiarization tours for travel writers, attract LGBT meetings, buy cooperative advertising, organize and sponsor events, exhibit at travel shows, maintain a comprehensive website and provide the community with educational resources. We strive to increase expenditures in the local economy by boosting gay and lesbian tourism and by marketing Central Florida as the gay-friendly community it is.
