Second Texas Hispanic Upfront
You are invited to attend the second Texas Hispanic Upfront, to be held on June 17 and 18, 2010 at the historic Aztec Theater in downtown San Antonio. Rated by Gene Bryant of HispanicAd.com as "…one of the best local/regional events in our industry..." it’s a must-attend event for any marketer in Texas.
The 2-day event will feature the Upfront Gala with Media Expo from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., where you can speak first hand with representatives of a wide range of media companies serving the Hispanic market. You will enjoy a dinner buffet and cash bar, accompanied by live musical entertainment while visiting with colleagues and media executives. From 7:00 to 9:30 p.m., you will experience multimedia presentations from ten Spanish-language television networks showcasing their innovative new fall programs.
A Media Auction will allow advertisers to purchase media packages donated by participating firms. Proceeds will benefit student internships and scholarships for students of Hispanic Marketing degree programs.
The AfterParty allows networking to continue across the street at the Drury Plaza Hotel with a hosted bar on the second floor balcony. On Friday, qualified media buyers are invited to engage in one-on-one meetings with the media vendors at the Media MarketPlace, also at the Drury from 10 AM to 2 PM.
This is your opportunity to get an advance preview of upcoming programming and to take vantage of unique sponsorship and upfront buying opportunities previously available only in New York.
