Hispanicize 2012 Kicks Off

Hispanicize 2012 is getting started today in Miami with sessions like “Blogging 101 (en español)” and “Is Your Brand Ready to Engage Latinos Online?” on tap. Besides all the social media business talk, there are also a few fun happenings, like the closing night screening of Scarface on Friday. The screening is part of the National Latino Film Showcase that Hispanicize introduced this year.

Influenced by SXSW, Manny Ruiz, the chairman of the event along with the co-founder of Latina Mom Bloggers and Hispanic PR Blog, told NBCLatino that there are three times the number of brands involved this year versus last year. And the event is attracting a who’s who of influential Latinos in the social media space.

“We plan to kick this event to another level and make it a place to catapult careers,” said Ruiz. NBCLatino is a sponsor of the event.

Q&A with Hispanicize’s Ruiz: Hispanic Influence in the U.S. is Growing launched last week in beta, offering visitors – including Hispanic marketers and Latino bloggers – with a place for content, services, and networking. On the site, you’ll find technology reviews, webinars, and Hispanic social media training, management, and consulting services for those looking to reach the Latino community. The site has also taken over content on the Hispanic PR Blog, which has been around for two years.

In today’s Q&A, we talk with Manny Ruiz, CEO of Hispanicize, founder of Hispanic PR Wire (which was acquired by PRNewswire in 2008), and organizer of Hispanicize 2011, the second annual conference bringing together bloggers and Hispanic marketers, taking place in Hollywood, CA from April 6 to the 8th.
