Inclusive Awareness Conference

The National Gay Wedding Association Inclusive Wedding Experience

Join us at the beautiful Indian Wells Hyatt Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, California for The National Gay Wedding Association’s annual conference, January 4-6, 2022. Connect with like-minded LGBTQ+ wedding experts for support, education and advocacy in one of the country’s most inclusive cities. We are very excited to welcome a talented group of speakers from around the country, including Sara Cunningham of Free Mom Hugs, a few surprise guests and a dynamic lineup of educational and inspirational topics will help you to navigate this growing billion-dollar industry. 

Attending guests will stay at one of Coachella Valley's award winning resorts. Relax and enjoy yourself poolside or visit the area in one of our organized excursions. Virtual attendees will enjoy the beautiful views at every angle. Palm Springs’ large LGBTQ+ community (over 50% of the city’s population is queer) allows us to experience a world in which the inclusivity we are learning already exists here in the Coachella Valley area.

Make sure to register NOW for an experience designed to educate, inspire, and prepare. Tickets are limited.
