NALIP Media Summit Teaser

The 2018 NALIP Media Summit serves to celebrate the convergence of media and the inclusion of Latinos as one within the general market. As the industry shifts, NALIP strives to examine and explain how Latino content creators can be proactive. We hope to continue pushing Latinos within the industry by giving them the right tools, the most up-to-date knowledge and connecting them with industry professionals. Most importantly we seek to have more Latinos both in front of the camera and behind the scenes to broaden the stories told through media.
