The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has announced the host city of its 44th annual National Conference — Orlando, Florida.
This conference will be in collaboration with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando (HCCMO), and is the largest meeting of Hispanic business leaders in the country.
“This year, we’re proud to bring our national network of Hispanic business leaders to Orlando to unify and empower our community,” said Ramiro Cavazos, President & CEO of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, in a press release.
An estimated 3,000 of the nation’s top executives, entrepreneurs, and corporate leaders will convene in central Florida to directly impact the local economy, accelerating the growth of Hispanic businesses in Florida and nationwide.
Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in policy-driven discussions with America’s business leaders, members of Congress, and local Hispanic Chamber leaders to amplify the country’s 5 million Hispanic-owned businesses, which contribute over $2.8 trillion in economic input.
The theme of this year’s conference is “The Future Is Now — Elevating Latino Businesses for Tomorrow,” and attendees will have special access to curated experiences that will connect them with business opportunities.
“Whether through our matchmaking sessions to source new contacts and procurement opportunities, meeting with corporate leaders from Fortune 500 companies, or showcasing local businesses from Orlando, together, we’re championing the economic growth and interests of the Hispanic entrepreneurial community and demonstrating our commitment to our nation’s economy in the process,” added Cavazos.
Gaby Ortigoni, president & CEO of the HCCMO, praises Florida for boasting “one of the most prosperous Latino-dominated business landscapes.”
The state alone houses approximately 600,000 Hispanic-owned businesses, which contribute over $90 billion to the American economy and create nearly a million jobs nationwide.
“As a major hub for Hispanic commerce in both the U.S. and Latin America, we’re privileged to host this year’s Conference in Orlando and eagerly anticipate the arrival of thousands to our exceptional city,” added Ortigoni.
At this year’s Conference, the USHCC and HCCMO will honor several prominent industry trailblazers and entrepreneurs within the Latino community. The seven award categories that will be presented are:
- Hispanic Business Person of the Year
- Chamber of the Year (Large, Medium and Small)
- Employee Resource Group of the Year
- Corporation of the Year
- Entrepreneurial Spirit of the Year
