It’s no secret that the sixth annual Hispanicize 2015 event (www.HispanicizeEvent.com) has always had a special focus on serving bloggers and vloggers so here’s a list of 12 amazing facts Hispanic and multicultural digital influencers and content creators should know about next year’s event:

1. You’ll Meet HUNDREDS of Top Hispanic Brands and Agencies at One Place, One time

Hispanicize 2015 is the ONLY national U.S. Hispanic event that brings Latino and multicultural digital influencers together with HUNDREDS (yes, HUNDREDS) of brands and agencies that want to specifically work with them.  Digital influencers don’t have the time or money to continuously attend conference after conference so Hispanicize 2015 is wired to generate immediate paid opportunities, business connections and more career-building relationships than anywhere else.

3. Because Miami Matters 

People always ask why we host Hispanicize in Miami instead of places like L.A. (which we did in 2011), New York or Chicago.  Perfect Spring weather helps Miami tremendously but the real reason is because Miami is THE epicenter of all the national Hispanic marketing, PR, advertising, media and entertainment industries.  No other market has the concentration of so many industries together than Miami.

4. The Industry’s Best Content, Speakers and Sessions Tailored to Bloggers/Vloggers

Our blogger/vlogger sessions will be more comprehensive and in-depth than ever before in 2015.  There will be four types of sessions for Latina/Latino digital influencers: 1. Professional development and technical help sessions, 2. business empowerment coaching, 3. Best Practice Case Study Success Sessions and 4. Industry Trends.  This year we’ll got some really cool, practical sessions for YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, Video, Photo-taking and more and the big bonus is that at Hispanicize we encourage attendees to roam freely to sessions outside their own industry.

5. The Most Unique Networking Opportunity in the Nation

With an expected attendance of more than 2,000 influencers, Hispanicize 2015 is the ONLY place where you can easily rub shoulders with the top Latino influencers in social media, advertising, PR, film, music, journalism and tech.  That’s our secret sauce and we’re not going to touch it!

6. World Class Sponsors

The Hispanicize event has become the most important platform for U.S. Hispanic and multicultural brands to launch new products, services, celebrity alliances, films, initiatives and more so it should come as no surprise that the event garners many world class sponsors.  Among 48 sponsors, the premier level partners of 2014 event include P&G, Target, 3M, Disney, Coca-Cola, Toyota and McDonald’s.

7. Fun, Fun and MORE FUN!

Hispanicize was built to be an anti-conference which means we hate the boring and predictable stuff you find at “conferences” and we always shoot for the fun and exciting.  With a track record  that includes synchronized swimmers, live penguins and even a 12-foot tall Transformers robot with a human inside the machine, you truly “Never Know What to Expect at Hispanicize.”  Three key fun highlights will include the Blogger/Vlogger Pre-Treat, the Blogger/Vlogger Yacht Party and the Closing Night Concert Bash in South Beach.  And, of course, you have VIP treatment for all three!

8. Great Prizes and Giveaways!

Some people have complained that Hispanicize spoils its blogger/vlogger attendees with VIP treatment and giveaways that have included trips to Italy, premium washer/dryers and more iPads than we can count but that’s just our style.  Our sponsors are the most enthusiastically creative and engaged ones you’ll see anywhere so if that means they want to treat digital influencers to tons of cool giveaways and other surprises, hey, bring it on!

9. The Tecla Awards 

Every industry needs an awards program that is done with integrity and that recognizes excellence.  That’s the reason we launched the Tecla Awards.  The Tecla Awards will bring recognition to digital content creators with 20 of the 30 award categories devoted to Latino digital influencers in various categories.  You say you’ve got what it takes to win?  Nominate yourself or someone whose work you admire thru January 15 at http://www.hispanicizeevent.com/tecla-awards-2015.  The big awards ceremony kicks off Hispanicize 2015 on Monday, March 16.

10. The Positive Impact Awards

A signature national awards program of Hispanicize, the Positive Impact Awards by 3M is a red carpet gala and concert event that celebrates the achievements of five Latinas and Latinos who personify doing good and serving people.  A Who’s Who of brands, agencies, journalists, celebrities and other high achievers attend this gala and concert program, which is being produced for the second year in a row.

11. Meet the Latinovators

It’s one thing to see celebrities at an event but it’s a whole ‘nother level to be able to personally engage with some of the great ones we’ve historically had in our midst including Rita Morena, Carlos Vives, Soledad O’Brien, Maria Elena Salinas, Emilio Estefan, Carlos Ponce and many more.  In 2015, we’re going to surprise and delight you with more Latinovators that will inspire and motivate you to be more successful including YouTube sensation DulceCandy who became the first digital influencer ever awarded this prestigious prize!

12. Opportunity for Intimate Gatherings

As large as we are, Hispanicize always makes room for bloggers to have their own quality, one-on-one time and experiences.  Some of these gatherings do not even include sponsors while others are very intimate for one brand with select digital influencers.
