Latino Trendsetters Connect and Inspire at Hispanicize 2013

Share Button

Hispanicize 2013 ignited a fire under the bellies of many Latinos in social media, entertainment, marketing, and journalism — including the pansa of this LatinoFoodie. Honored to be among such an elite group of bloggers and media moguls, the mega event (not a conference) held in Miami Beach April 9 – 13, inspired and fueled the ideas and innovation of Latino entrepreneurs.

I (Art) have to give special thanks to ViSalus, the official fitness and nutrition partner, for sponsoring LatinoFoodie to attend as one of its Latino blogger ambassadors. You’ll be hearing more about ViSalus over the next three months as I document my journey to lose weight and get healthy by taking the 90-day Body by Vi™ Challenge.

As you can see from my photos below, I indulged in the entire Hispanicize experience.  The panel sessions were informative (Stephen even got to speak on one), and we had a chance to catch up with old friends and make several new ones. A big congratulations to the entire Hispanicize team for creating a smashing event at a gorgeous venue.
