FITUR GAY (LGBT+) is adding the “+” sign to the international acronym, in reference to the addition of new and socially-accredited orientations. This section is one of the most consolidated and widely represented sections at the Trade Fair, by number of square meters, participating companies and extensive programs for discussions and activities.
