Hispanicize 2014 (#Hispz14), the fifth anniversary edition of the annual Latino trends event that draws more than 1,200 influencers from journalism, blogging, marketing and entertainment, will take place April 1-4 in 2014.

The multi-industry event will be hosted at downtown Miami’s signature hotel the InterContinental Miami (which just completed a $30 million renovation to its rooms) with several offsite locations for special concerts, film screenings and other programs.  (Visit the event web site at www.HispanicizeEvent.com).

“With Miami as our canvass and a lot of great feedback from our sponsors, partners and attendees we’re poised to deliver a much more compelling experience for everyone in 2014,” said Manny Ruiz, founder and creative director of the event.

A HINT OF THINGS TO COME

Hispanicize 2014 will feature a growing focus on content creators like Hispanic journalists and Latina bloggers while also expanding its Latin music festival and its longstanding marketing and public relations tracks.

For the first time in its history the Hispanicize event will also host a major dinner program, the content of which will be revealed at a future date.

Expect Latin food and a unique fashion show to also play prominent roles in some of the 2014 event’s top activities.

“Overall we will feature tweaks to the program that will sustain our track record for being creative and groundbreaking,” said Ruiz.  “As we’ve said before, we will say again, ‘You never know what to expect at Hispanicize.’”
