Just Say ¡Sí! The Latino Media Explosion – Opportunities in Any Language
Hispanics are the fastest growing demographic in the United States. Bilingual, bicultural, second-generation and third-generation Hispanics have seized the imagination of advertisers, distributors, producers and content providers, creating an explosion in Latino media.
There is a proliferation of content being created in English to capture the attention and buying power of this important and growing market, while not ignoring the landscape and strength of the Spanish-language audience.
Don’t miss a fantastic opportunity to learn about this segment of our industry, how it affects you and how to best realize opportunities in your market — whether you speak or work in español, English or both!
