Latam Summit: More Blue Chip Speakers Added! Early Bird Expires Friday!

Preparations for our Latin American Advertising and Media Summit, June 6-7, 2012 at the Perry South Beach in Miami, are in full gear. (Early Bird is expiring this Friday!, Register now!). Over the last few days we have added two blue chip marketers to an already impressive roster of speakers:

- Mariano Moro, Senior Integrated Marketing Communications Manager, Latin Center Business Unit, The Coca Cola Company

- Martha Krawczyk, VP Marketing, Visa 

Coca Cola’s Mariano Moro will participate in a panel that goes right into the crux of the panregional advertising and media industry:  “ Miami 2012: Where do we go from here? Opportunities for the Panregional Advertising Marketplace". As new media and advertising regulations in some Latin American markets are changing the panregional advertising business, a creative content expert, a client, a media agency and a media owner will discuss how these changes are impacting their work and what opportunities and challenges they see going forward.  Carlos Gutierrez, Chief Growth Officer - Latin America and Caribbean at McCann Worldgroup will provide the view of the creative content expert. Panelists representing a media buying agency and a media owner will be announced soon.

Visa’s Martha Krawczyk
, will participate in a panel on Colombia which will explore the big opportunities that lie ahead in marketing to Colombians, now that the South American country  has been able to significantly reduce terrorist violence.  

Portada's Latam Advertising and Media Summit is the annual Meeting Point for the global Latin Advertising, Media and Content World (Latin America, Spain and U.S. Hispanic). This year's event main theme is "From Rio to Madrid via Los Angeles, Leveraging Technology to reach Latin Audiences."
