Hispanic TV: Where Latino Voices Matter Most!

September 21-24

This year’s theme is “Hispanic TV: Where Latino voices Matter Most” which is particularly
appropriate given current events and the upcoming Presidential elections in the U.S.

The program on Monday, September 21 features the presentation of the Annual Hispanic Television & Video Awards which remain the highlight of the event, where leading executives, companies, organizations and on-air celebrities are honored. A new award will be introduced this year in honor of the late Rafael Eli,  co-producer of this event since its inception. The Rafael Eli awards will acknowledge individuals or organizations who were pioneers of Hispanic TV and helped to build and sustain the business.

Tuesday 22 to Thursday 24 will include keynote interviews, presentations, and panel discussions with leading executives. The topics will address media and advertising sales, brand marketing, Hispanic audience metrics and data, new programming (with a focus on election coverage and news), audience promotion, subscription marketing and content distribution.

This year’s summit celebrates Hispanic TV as the place where Latino voices matter most – where Latino viewers see and hear themselves. From sports to game shows and talent competitions, to the election campaign coverage – Hispanic TV provides Latino voices with a bigger platform greater than ever before.
