2010 is our 17th Anniversary. This is a huge milestone for the GLBT Community, the loyal sponsors/exhibitors/attendees that support the EXPO and your dedicated staff at The RDP Group.

For the past 17 years, the EXPO has helped to present the finest products & services available to the GLBT consumer. Starting in 1993, the EXPO has generated over $80,000,000 of dollars spent within the Greater Tri-State area. This includes the GLBT friendly companies from every industry, both large and small, Fortune 1000 and Gay-owned companies. They have all discovered the GLBT Community is affluent, brand-loyal, well educated and business minded. It is the truest of definition of "THE PERFECT NICHE MARKET".

20th Annual Legislative Summit Washington, DC March 22-24, 2010

Working together towards a New Economy
 ushcc
 
There is no more important time to come to Washington than now. Our elected officials have an enormous obligation to stimulate and repair our economy. Congressional leadership is reacting to the new policies of the Administration, which will have a direct impact on the future of our community. Rules and regulations that impact our businesses and their bottom line are being designed and refined. You must be at the table to ensure those changes are beneficial and not harmful. If we expect to be included and represented effectively, the Hispanic business community must deepen relationships in Congress and maintain a high profile with key decision makers. .
