The emergence of digital content on a vast scale is profoundly changing content consumption patterns in Latin America and the U.S. Hispanic market. Pedro Huerta, Director Kindle Content at Amazon for Latin America, will be the keynote presenter of the third edition of the Foro Portada Mexico (#PortadaMexico13) which takes place next Thursday October 17 in Mexico City’s Hotel Presidente Intercontinental.
Huerta tells Portada that a structural change is taking place in the way consumers approach content (books, video games, newspapers, magazines and movies) in Latin America. To a large extent this is due to a substantial increase in the amount and quality of digital content available to Latin American consumers over the last few years. During his presentation, Huerta will predict which transactional models (e.g. online subscription models) will win in Latin America. The role advertising will play in promoting digital content in the new Latin American digital content ecosystem will also have an important place in Huerta’s presentation.
Huerta’s most recent professional experience makes him the ideal Foro Portada Mexico 2013 keynote presenter. As Amazon’s Kindle leading executive in Latin America, Huerta last August introduced the Kindle store and self publishing platform in Mexico. At the end of 2012 Amazon introduced the Kindle in Brazil.
Digital innovation (disruption?), plays an important role in the agenda of Foro Portada Mexico. ComsCore’s Ivan Marchant, Director or Mexico and Latin America, will moderate a panel of leading Mexican digital entrepreneurs who will analyze the relationship between advertising, content and e-commerce in the online travel, insurance and classified categories. What strategies need to be used to maximize e-commerce revenues?
