Hispanicize 2013


by Linda Castillo

Conferences are an amazing way to stay current with technology and update your knowledge but also offer an opportunity to network.

Hispanicize is coming up in April 9-13 in Miami, Florida bringing together brands, media, marketers, celebrities, filmmakers, innovators and bloggers together.

Hispanicize 2013 has so many great panels it was hard for me to select the ones that I was most interested in attending. Here are my top 4 that I would love to attend because they most closely align with my personal and professional goals for Modern Latina:

  • Digital PR: How to create a Social Revolucion
  • The Blog/Home Life Balance – Become a Force of One
  • How to create branded videos that go viral
  • Mama Power-Best practices and insights from the communities of mom bloggers

While there are many reasons why I would love to attend Hispanicize 2013, I will summarize why I want to go in three words – CONNECT, COLLABORATE, and COMMIT.

Connect – I will have the opportunity to connect with fellow bloggers and network with companies who want to work with Latina bloggers. There are many bloggers that I have met in the social media world that I would have a chance to meet in person.

Collaborate – Hispanicize will be the place for me to collaborate with fellow bloggers and brands on new and innovative projects.

Commit– Hispanicize will give me fresh new ideas and inspiration to continue with my passion of publishing Modern Latina. I started Modern Latina in 2005 and I want to take Modern Latina to the next level.

And while all the learning and networking are great, there are some social aspects that I can’t forget to mention. I mean who wouldn’t love to going to yacht party or attending some movie premiers. I hope to see you at Hispanicize 2013!!
