Chamber Brings LGBT Trade to Colombia 
- Delta and Hilton Sponsor NGLCC's Historic Trade Mission 

Team NGLCC lands in Bogotá today for the beginning of the first U.S. Government-certified LGBT Trade Mission and the inaugural LGBT Summit of the Americas, which will bring together business leaders from several Latin American countries.

"Our goal is to increase the LGBT business presence throughout the Americas," said Justin Nelson, NGLCC Co-Founder and President. "There is a hunger among the LGBT business community, not only in Colombia, but also in the United States, to increase opportunities between our two nations and access new markets in which to sell products and services." 

NGLCC has deliberately focused on South America as an area for economic growth, starting with the organization's first trade mission to Argentina in 2010. Colombia remains one of the biggest importers of U.S. goods, but markets for LGBT suppliers are still untapped. NGLCC is making strides to change that with this trade mission comprised of more than 20 delegates, including LGBT business owners, affiliate chamber and community leaders, and corporate representatives such as delegation sponsors Delta Air Lines and Hilton Hotels. 

Several local small business owners and national community leaders will join the delegation later this week for the first-ever LGBT Summit of the Americas. Representatives from Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Chile, and Brazil will discuss important topics of trade, business development, tourism, and further establishing LGBT chambers of commerce throughout Latin America. 

Although NGLCC acknowledges labor and human rights concerns in Colombia, the summit will discuss how to influence a nation during a period of immense economic growth and cultural transition. 

"As the national certifying body for LGBT business owners, we are people-driven first and foremost," said Chance Mitchell, NGLCC Co-Founder and CEO. "We are launching an affiliate chamber in Colombia this Friday at the conclusion of the summit, and we believe the best way to affect human rights is to be part of the business discussion. Business and profits can be great motivators for change."
