Reasons to Participate:

  • Community - The Triangle’s LGBTQ+ community is diverse and shows up in large numbers to support community focused events. For exhibitors, this is a unique opportunity to show support for this community and garner valuable market share in a demographic that has demonstrated long-term loyalty to businesses who serve their needs in a respectful, affirming way. For the community, this is an opportunity to interact with a wide range of professionals, businesses, non-profits and service providers who support you and want to fulfill your needs. It’s an opportunity to locate an affirming professional, business or service provider to replace the one that currently serves you, but leaves that certain something to be desired.
  • Visibility – As a professional, business, non-profit or service provider exhibiting at the PrideLife Expo you will be seen and be noticed. Be acknowledged that you have a desire to reach out to, and serve, the LGBTQ+ community, regardless of age. This is your chance to create a memorable brand for your offerings. For the individual, this is a time to demonstrate the size and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community and show appreciation for PrideLife exhibitors.
  • Accessibility – A unique opportunity, with over 100 exhibitors, all at one time; all in one place, in an enormous venue for the purpose of connecting the LGBTQ+ community with a huge array of professionals, businesses, non-profits and service providers.
