The theme for this year’s Hispanicize 2014 blogger session’s agenda can be summed up in three words: Bigger, better and deeper.
Curated by the Latina Mom Bloggers network, the Hispanicize 2014 Latino blogger track this year will feature 25 sessions focused on more advanced professional development topics than ever before. A roster of the nation’s top Latino and multicultural blogging leaders and influencers will host this year’s workshops, case studies, topics and talks.
“Hispanic bloggers, brands and agencies are now collaborating in content marketing programs that require an increasingly advanced approach,” said Piera Jolly, Co-CEO of the Latina Mom Bloggers. “This year we are emphasizing that kind of content without losing sight of the fact that bloggers come to Hispanicize to connect directly with the brands and agencies that want to work with them.”
Among the list of top bloggers and social media influencers who will present at Hispanicize 2014 are: Jeannette Kaplun of Hispana Global; YouTube star Jorge Narvaez of Reality Changers; Lizza Morales of XoxoLizza; Ana Flores of Latina Bloggers Connect; Stacey Ferguson of Blogalicious; Ramon de Leon of #RamonWow; Flor de Maria of Flor de Maria Fashions; Vanessa Vargas-Wilson of Crafty Gemini; Yvette Marquez of Muy Bueno Cookbook; Nadia Jones of Niche Parent; Martin Amado; Joscelyn Ramos Campbell of Mami of Multiples; Deborah Deras; Denise Cortes of Pear Mama; Kathy Cano-Murillo of Crafty Chica; Kristina Nuñez of Hott Mama in the City; Silvia Martinez of Mama Latina Tips; Zay Zay of ZayZay.com; Teresa Garza of ChecaLaMovie.net; Jose Sanchez of Piccolo Mundo; Mercedes Sanchez of BeChicMag.com; Gaby Natale of Super Latina TV; Vanessa Bell of De Su Mama; Melissa Bailey of Hungry Food Love; Carmen Ordoñez of Viva Fashion; Rachel Matos of The Art Muse; Monique Frausto of Curves & Chaos; Vanessa Diaz of The Queen of Swag!; Yolanda Machado of Sassy Mama in LA and Lance Rios of Being Latino and DigiBunch.
Hispanicize 2014 is also celebrating its 5th anniversary by adding another great tradition for bloggers and journalists in the spirit of its popular annual yacht party: A “Blogger and Journalists Pre-Treat” on Monday, March 31st. The “Blogger and Journalist Pre-Treat” is a fun, four-hour long, offsite activity organized by several major brands in partnership with Hispanicize 2014. The Blogger and Journalists Yacht Party will take place on Wednesday, April 2nd.
Thanks to record sponsorship support from top brands like 3M, Toyota, Google and others that will soon be revealed, bloggers and journalists will once again be given front row access to celebrities, music artists, VIP concerts, film premieres and more. The event will provide bloggers with expert professional development sessions, access to more brands and agencies than ever before as well many opportunities to win thousands of dollars in cool prizes and contests that will be held throughout the event.
