LatinVision Media Inc. Announces Its Line-up of Speakers for the 5th Annual Marketing to Latinos Sports Business Summit and Networking Event

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/07/14 -- LatinVision Media Inc., a producer of business summits for the U.S. Hispanic and Latin American Markets, announced its full lineup of speakers for the Sports conference aimed at helping U.S. and Latin American marketers reach and engage Hispanic consumers.

According to Carlos Vassallo, CEO of LatinVision Media, sports is the fastest growing industry among Hispanics across the world, including Latinos in the US and in Latin America. Fans are consuming sports content, including live events, at the level that has not been seen before and they are using multiple platforms and social media channels to stay informed, connected and engaged with their teams and athletes. Latinos spend more time engaging with sports than any other group. The U.S. Hispanic Market is one of the most attractive for advertisers and marketers due to its purchasing power, which is estimated to be greater than 1.5 trillion dollars. "The exponential growth of the Hispanic Market as a segment is changing the engagement rules, forcing marketers to change their approach, strategy and tactics if they want to maintain their share in the business. Sports is perhaps the stronger driver to reach this consumer group," he explained.

This fifth edition of LatinVision's sports summit is part of the industry-specific marketing summits the company has planned for 2014. To learn more about the summit series, see the following: www.latinvision.com/marketing

The one-day sport summit will feature panels and personal presentation and after-work sessions with networking and one-on-one opportunities between attendees and presenters. The Summit will be followed by a networking event at www.latinvision.com/events
