Hispanicize 2013 Expands Conference Agenda To Include Showcases for Latin Music Industry and Hispanic Journalists
This year I had an amazing opportunity to visit Sunny Miami where I spent the week sharing best practices, eating Croquetas & drinking Mojitos with some of the most influential bloggers, brands and media professionals at Hispanicize 2012. I was part of an incredible panel about community building alongside some really cool people like Eva Smith, Lynn Ponder, Ted Rubin and Lance Rios. Aside from meeting many influencers from all over the country, I had the opportunity to meet some really good online friends in real life.
It was an amazing experience and so it is only natural that I would get excited that Hispanicize 2013 has announced an exciting new agenda with some new components for the 2013 version of this incredible conference. Hispanicize had the interwebs buzzing with the addition of two new tracks to the conference that in my opinion redefines it and takes it to the next level.
The new tracks are as follows…
Latin Music Showcase: The Latin Music Showcase will bring A-list and indie music artists to the event for the first time. In addition to music performances and memorable after parties, this showcase will also consist of professional development sessions examining the latest industry trends.
Hispanic Journalists Showcase: A new track, this showcase will focus on providing Hispanic journalists with professional development training and networking opportunities they need to succeed. This showcase also includes a Media Room, Press Conference Room and private interview rooms catering to journalists’ professional needs.
Both tracks are incredibly important now that Latinos are reshaping how content is created and distributed in this country… and twice as important for us to share our insights with established brands and media outlets so that they can truly embrace Latinos and respect our buying power.
I am also happy to announce that I will be serving on the Hispanicize 2013 National Advisory Board. to help shape the content alongside more than 40 Hispanic brand marketing executives and influencers from the industries of advertising, public relations, journalism, social media, film, music, business and technology.

SEE YOU IN MIAMI!
