2015 AHAA "Redefining Relevanceā€ Conference, April 27 - 29, 2015

"Redefining Relevance" is the theme of the next annual conference of "AHAA: The Voice of Hispanic Marketing" taking place in Miami from April 27 to 29, 2015. With the marketing landscape constantly evolving to keep up with dramatically changing demographics, new strategies are tested, new models of data collection are created, and return on investment (ROI) is scrutinized to ensure proper budgetary allocations. However, the most successful marketing campaigns consistently hit home runs in one area: Relevance. Relevant messaging, creative, and delivery are all necessary to forge meaningful relationships and win brand loyalty of Hispanics, America's most powerful demographic. Confirmed speakers include: Laura Desmond, Global CEO of Starcom; Deanie Eisner, CMO of Kraft; Rick Gomez, SVP, Marketing, Target; Peter Hall, Regional Marketing Director of the Americas, Heineken; Jim McNamara, Chairman of Pantelion Films and Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO of iHeartMedia, Inc. For more information, visit http://ahaa.org.
