2009 Session:

Session Description – UNDERSTANDING THE LATINO COMMUNITY

Latinos are now the largest minority in the United States. By 2050, a quarter of the U.S. population will be comprised of men, women and children of Latino descent.

If you want to grow your company, or even keep it afloat, you must begin to adapt your business and marketing strategies to embrace Hispanics as a significant part of your customer base.

From groundskeepers to government officials, Latinos are everywhere and they’re buying the products and services you sell.

By discovering and understanding the latest trends of this growing segment of the U.S. population, you’ll gain the tools you need to implement the changes necessary to maintain growth and profitability by adapting your business and your message in a way that resonates with Hispanics.
