General Session on Multicultural Digital Marketing

The U.S. Hispanic market and Latin America were also represented in Ad:Tech New York's conference agenda. Martin Enriquez, CEO & Founder of Social Metrix, Matias Perel, Founder of Latin3, Rudina Seseir, partner, Fairhaven Capital and Sederrick Raphiel, Principal & Creative Director at The Design Factory, participated in a lively keynote panel on the state of multicultural marketing within digital advertising. Matias Perel of Latin3 used the analogy of "two worlds" as he played a video from Univision highlighting the dual nature of many Latin Americans today. They may be into futbol as much as football; they may like cheeseburgers as much as carne asada. This demographic may baffle marketers because of the complexities involved, but the video mentioned a very important point: Latinos make up the fastest growing segment of young people in the US.
