Latino Home Entertainment Awards24 Mar, 2009 By: Thomas K. Arnold
I just wanted to issue a friendly reminder that Home Media Magazine is presenting the Fifth Annual Latino DVD Awards on Tuesday, April 28, at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, Calif.
This annual event began as a conference, but with the economy the way it is, we decided to trim back, significantly cut registration costs and focus on one of the highlights of each year's confab: the awards. I think everyone who reads this is aware of how powerful the Latino consumer is, and that Hollywood marketers — and marketers everywhere, for that matter — for years have been eager to tap into this fast-growing demographic. For suppliers, participating in this event is a great way to publicize your key titles, given the huge amount of press the awards typically generate, particularly in the Latino press. And for retailers, it's a great way to meet and network with the suppliers of Latino product. Click here for more information.
If you haven't yet entered the contest, the deadline is March 27, so get on it! And if you haven't registered, you have until April 20 to get the discounted rate, which this year is just $150 for a fabulous dinner and ticket to the awards. I suggest you register early, though, because despite the down economy we are predicting a sellout!
