New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation (NOTMC) Launches LGBT Travel Sweepstakes

#LoveNOLA campaign features romantic trip for two to New Orleans

New Orleans, LA (May 30th, 2016) - Heralded as one of the most romantic cities in the world by CNN and other travel publications, New Orleans is the perfect place to spend some quality time with loved ones.

In a recent survey conducted by Community Marketing, Inc., a majority of LGBT travelers who had not visited New Orleans viewed it as a party destination and only somewhat romantic and friendly. In response, New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation (NOTMC), along with partner agency Communify, launched the #LoveNOLA campaign, which includes a sweepstakes featuring a romantic trip for two that highlights New Orleans' vibrant LGBT community.

New Orleans (NOLA) is a romantic outpost of love, diversity and acceptance," said Mark Romig......"For almost 300 years we have welcomed citizens from across the globe to experience one of the most unique, authentic and delicious destinations in the world, and I urge you to follow your NOLA this year and beyond. "

The #LoveNOLA Sweepstakes runs through July 20, 2016 and has a generous prize package including a two-night stay at the new Ace Hotel and roundtrip air to New Orleans. People can enter the sweeps by visiting where they can also sign up for NOTMC's monthly LGBT newsletter.

While targeted to LGBT travelers, the sweepstakes is open to anyone who meets the eligibility requirements. See Official Rules for details.

Additionally, NOTMC will use the hashtag #LoveNOLA across its social media channels to promote and inspire user-generated content about LGBT couples experiencing love in New Orleans.
