Weird.  Mean.  Painful.  2017 was arguably one of the strangest years in American history for the Latino community and a rash of unprecedented headlines – and even natural catastrophes – made it particularly tough for Hispanic brands to navigate. In this brands town hall we’ll look at how cultural and political trends are impacting Hispanic brands as well as predictions for Hispanic advertising in 2018 and beyond across a variety of key topics and industries.
In this session, you’ll learn:
A year after the Trump presidency, how have the rules of Hispanic and multicultural marketing changed or been impacted by the constant headlines against the Latino community, the war against DACA, Puerto Rico, etc…?
What brands are standing out for their unwavering support of the Latino – and immigrant – communities and why you think their work makes them particularly stand out?
This past year several brands went out of their way – P&G, among them – to affirm the importance of Hispanic Market segmentation and even about the commitment to work with agencies owned by executives from diverse backgrounds.  Where has this development impacted the ongoing Total Market debate?
- How is your brand spending this year across U.S. Hispanic TV, radio, digital/social?  Let’s review each category and tell us if your company is going to spend higher, lower or flat compared to 2017.
- What is your view towards the TV ratings and programming wars between Telemundo, Univision, etc…?  How are the TV networks faring in your opinion, what are they being smart about and where do you think they need to do better?
- Switching to social media.  Which social media strategies and tactics do you think are resonating with Hispanic brands – including yours - right now the most and which ones do you think are not?
- Other than the public affairs topics we discussed earlier, what are the top cultural trends Hispanic marketers are most paying attention to this year?  

- Who are the Latino trend-setters that brands most admire this year in music, film and culture?
