“Prudential’s presenting sponsorship support greatly helped us raise the bar in 2016,” said Hispanicize event founder Manny Ruiz. “Thanks to Prudential and to many other great brands and media partners such as NBC Universal/Telemundo who were our presenting media partners, we were able to execute our vision of elevating and uniting Latinos and as a result, Hispanicize 2016 turned out to be the biggest and most creative event to date.”

In addition to being the Hispanic marketing and social media industry’s premier program, Hispanicize 2016 also included in-depth Blogger/Creators, Hispanic Journalist, Music, Film and Latino Tech Entrepreneurs and marketing showcase with Geoscape.
