Want to gain insights into a key, fast-growing consumer segment with a voracious appetite for technology? Turn your lens on the U.S. Hispanic market. They over-index in smartphone usage, are more likely to talk about products and brands than non-Hispanics and aren't afraid to adopt new behaviors—from social shopping to mobile commerce. Our panel will give marketers a leg up on the competition when it comes to reaching this segment by exploring how technology is reshaping their media habits and shopping behaviors, how they feel about technology brands, and what kinds of marketing messages and content resonate among this fast-growing consumer group.

So stop by , we'd love to see you. We'll make sure you have a place to plug-in, as well as daypart-appropriate refreshments. And please do say hello to Ad Age writers, editors and staff.
