Gaytravel.com Partners with Grindr for Season Two of the Gay Travel Guru
SOLANA BEACH, Calif -- gaytravel.com, the online community that connects LGBT travelers
around the world, just announced a new marketing partnership with Grindr, the largest
gay social network in the world.
In 2010, gaytravel.com searched for and crowned the first Gay Travel Guru. Throughout 2011,
winner Nick Vivion traveled to the hottest destinations in North America, sharing his experiences
with gaytravel.com network followers around the world.
Gay Travel Guru's second season will begin this summer and is expected to be even more
extensive than Season One, with exotic, international locations added to the Guru's itinerary.
To help find the next Guru, gaytravel.com is looking to Grindr's nearly 1.5 million users in the
United States for assistance with the search, and will also look to their 3.5 million global users
for support during the Guru's travels around the world.
"We’re thrilled to be teaming up with gaytravel.com for Season Two of Gay Travel Guru," says
Joey Hernandez, community relations director for Grindr, LLC. "As the world’s largest gay
social network, Grindr is the natural partner for gay travel. From tapping our global network for
the best guru applicants to hosting events at local destinations with the winner, we look forward
to connecting our global community of savvy travelers with the Gay Travel Guru campaign."
"Gaytravel.com is delighted to have Grindr as the presenting sponsor for Season Two of Gay
Travel Guru," says Steve Rohrlick, CEO of gaytravel.com. "This partnership is an opportunity
for this fantastic competition to attract even more attention, participants and rewards throughout
North America and across the globe."
"We've been working with Grindr for about six months on some great giveaways and
promotions which have all been wildly successful," added Joey Konecek, community director
for gaytravel.com. "We have no doubt that the inclusion of Grindr for the next season of Gay
Travel Guru will catapult this year's campaign to the next level, driving even more traffic to the Guru pages of the site and opening the door to many more applicants."
