The annual “Latino Marketplace” was designed as a one-stop-shop event. It attracts meeting planners from the DC area to meet, network and discuss business opportunities with hotel companies, CVBs and other meeting suppliers and vendors. It is unique in that it serves as a tradeshow and a networking reception meant to create a casual and festive atmosphere.

Plans are underway for the 2014 Latino Marketplace so please stay tuned. For more information on volunteering for the Latino Marketplace or becoming a 2014 exhibitor, please send an email to

The Latino Marketplace was created as a one-stop-shop networking event and trade show that brings together Latino, and other diverse meeting planners from the Mid-Atlantic area, to meet, network and discuss business opportunities with hotel companies, CVBs and other meeting suppliers and vendors.

With increasing attendance each year, a well publicized educational session before the show floor opens also helps guarantee a constant flow of visitors to your table.

Designed as an intimate gathering of like industry professionals, with brief fun announcements, refreshments and prizes, a festive environment helps all attendees “work the room” to discuss meeting opportunities and forge lasting connections.

We invite you to connect and network with planners from America’s largest ethnic demographic & growing consumer market!!!

We hope to see you there!
