MIAMI, FL – April 5, 2016 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Move over Millennials, it’s time to start discovering the next demographic headed our way: Generación Z. The topic of what drives Latino teens, one of the hottest demographics brands need to gear up for, is the focus of a ground-breaking survey completed by Alma and will be revealed for the first time at the Hispanicize conference in Miami this afternoon.

“This is a group that will be large and in charge before we know it,” says Marta Insua, Chief Curiosity Officer at Alma. “By getting to know them ahead of time, we can gather the intelligence and insights we need to prepare for the next generation in marketing.”

Get to know what motivates the new generation of Latino teens, who influences them, and what the implications are for brands trying to reach them. The full results of the survey will be unveiled at the Intercontinental Miami Hotel at 1:15pm in the Chopin room, as part of a premier marketing industry session at Hispanicize 2016. The panel will also be available via live stream from the Hispanicize site.

“There is going to be a lot of buzz about this session because we’re talking about the generation of Hispanics that will be even more influential in how brands, politicians and other organizations operate,” said Manny Ruiz, founder and chairman of the Hispanicize brands that include the Hispanicize event and DiMe Media. “This research and session are a prototype of the compelling content we have in store for our faithful audience of Hispanic market brands, agencies and media companies attending this year’s event.”
