African Americans make up one of the fastest growing markets in the travel industry. Select travel groups identified this growth early on and have built online communities via social media, that connect like minded individuals who want to travel the world together. Members are part of a community. One in which they not only share their travel dreams, but build friendships to share life’s daily challenges, achievements, sorrows and opinions.
Promoter and owner of KJ Events, Keith Jones has built a black travel group called “the Grown and Sexy.” Don’t let the name of the group give you the wrong impression. Grown & Sexy is a state of mind…professionals that come together, dress up for theme nights and share their passion for music and travel. Grown and Sexy has grown to a community of over 50,000 people who stay in touch year round. We call it a community, not only because people travel together year after year and have made lifelong friends, but also because it’s a community that helps one another through prayers, friendship and both emotional and even financial support. In one amazing instance this year, someone even donated a kidney to a fellow G&S member in dire need.
Whether you want a resort in Jamaica, a trip to Dubai, or a Caribbean cruise, Grown and Sexy will take the experience to a new level. With amazing DJ’s, theme parties, Comedians, guest speakers and more. G&S cruises started with just small group of 20 people, and now book over 2,500 cruisers per year. They also offer weekend getaways in major U.S. cities such as Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta. For land lovers you can also join G&S to places such as Jamaica, Mexico and coming 2018….Dubai.
