The LMEC and LatinVision Media announce the 2008 Convergence: The Future of Latin Entertainment, Media and Technology Markets

NEW YORK CITY - The LMEC-LatinVision Media 2008 Convergence: The Future of Latin Entertainment, Media and Technology Markets will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2008 at the New York Times – Times Center - in New York City.

The 2008 Convergence conference is the premier event for Latin media, entertainment, and technology CEOs and executives looking to grow their business and new opportunities with Latin audiences and to reach the mainstream. This one-day event brings the best minds in the Latin media, entertainment and technology markets and is presented by New York City’s Latin Media and Entertainment Commission (LMEC) in partnership with LatinVision Media.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg established the LMEC in 2003 to make New York the capital of Latin media and entertainment in the world. The Commission is made up of leaders from the Latin and mainstream media industry, community leaders from nonprofit and cultural sectors, and leading executives from the financial, advertising and real estate sectors.

The conference will be presented in the form of thematic panels with questions from the audience and moderated by experts in their respective fields.

In addition, we will highlight major companies like Univision which have relocated to New York City. Joe Uva, CEO of Univision, the nation’s largest Spanish-language media conglomerate, will share its decision to relocate headquarters to NYC, its competitive advantage, and how Univision is adjusting and changing its business model in relation to the growing and elusive Hispanic audience. Another example in the New Media space is Mio.tv, a discussion by Manuel Garcia-Oliva about launching this new initiative in NYC.

The 2008 Convergence: The Future of Latin Entertainment, Media and Technology Markets will also feature:

·Effective best practices to adopt new technologies to Latino media and entertainment


·Case studies by top media players in the so-called traditional space, and how their outlets are adapting to the digital space

·Technologies available for delivering information and entertainment via new channels

·Efforts launched by both the private and public sector to create, promote and support Latin American arts and culture

·Best practices in training, recruiting and retaining the best talent in the areas of marketing, advertising, new media, PR and technology

·Case studies of new ventures and how they got started through financing

·Networking event

The 2008 Convergence conference seeks to share and enhance a broader knowledge of industry’s best practices to transform businesses and to better meet the demands of an increasingly mobile, fragmented, and elusive target audience. It’ll also showcase New York City’s efforts to promote and support Latin culture and media as well as to how businesses can benefit and contribute to the future of Latin media, entertainment, and technology.

The 2008 Convergence: The Future of Latin Entertainment, Media and Technology Markets conference is presented by the Latin Media and Entertainment Commission in partnership with LatinVision Media. The conference is sponsored by major US and International Corporations.

This year’s conference will include a three-hour networking business reception at NASDAQ, where industry, talent and the new entrants will be able to connect in a more relaxed environment at the crossroads of the world.
