"Thought I’d share my impression of the conference that I presented to the agency I now work with, Waggener Edstrom. This was a great conference for me to provide a bit more insight to general market teams. I use this level of insight to influence teams into considering the Hispanic market to expand their clients business."
Attendees included media sales teams, agencies (advertising and PR), corporate clients like Comcast who’s super new into this space.

Jose Pinero, Corporate Diversity Director, was asked to participate as a panelist. Our relationship with TJG helped Jose get on this impressive panel. His topic, ‘"Retail Activation: The Meaning of 360 Marketing in the Hispanic Market”. He did a great job highlighting Microsoft’s success in the Windows Vista outreach to the Hispanic consumer and demonstrating Microsoft’s continued commitment in this space with products like MS Office Workspace, Office Accounting, Zune, Xbox. He also stressed that Microsoft is still new in the multicultural/Hispanic Marketing arena. We have been doing this for only about 3 years. Of course, he was the only client to speak about Public Relations as an important strategic initiative. Lorena Sandoval Denny | VP, US Hispanic/LATAM | Waggener Edstrom Worldwide

"Great event yesterday. Fantastic panels and participants. Fabulous venue. Congratulations"
Cristina Schwarz, CEO Paravos Communications
