Hispanicize: not your typical professional conference

With PR and Marketing professionals: Daisy, Diana and Tatiana

Almost a year ago I traveled to Miami to participate of my first Social media/Marketing series of events known as Hispanicize. This is a yearly event that congregates journalists, marketers, filmmakers, blogger and entrepreneurs. I’ve never participated in an event of this magnitude and all I can say is that it was totally worth it.

Hispanicize is not the typical professional conference, actually in more than one panel I heard that it was actually not a conference; and I agree with it. I’ve participated in professional conferences and this was like no other. You had great insights from renowned industry influencers, but not only that, you get the chance to actually interact with them and even exchange business cards. You are also able to meet people with great mind sets, some who are ahead of you, other in the same level but at all times you are able to learn from each of them. You have fun at the networking events; get to meet people from different industries, companies and cities. Furthermost, you get inspired! During the sessions I attended, great things came to my mind, great plans for my personal and my company’s future. Hearing so many successful and amazing stories, from many Latinos just like me (or you) was a big eye opener, and I’m happy to say that this blog was born thanks to Hispanicize.

I really hope I get the chance to be part of this awesome event again this year. Special thanks to Mama Contemporanea and Hispanicize for giving me the opportunity to talk a little bit about my experience in this great event  ….hopefully, next month I will get the chance to sign my posts as “Peruvian Chica in Miami” ( fingers crossed 😉 )
