As the growing U.S. Hispanic population continues to fuel consumer trends and spending how will that affect Hispanic radio? It sounds like the future is bright ? but it?s never safe to take anything for granted. At the Hispanic Radio Conference, a panel of bankers, brokers, radio executives, and investors will give some clear-eyed consideration to Hispanic radio as a business.
Are the leaders on the radio side really making the most of a fresh audience and growing opportunities? What does a Hispanic radio group need to look like to attract today?s cautious investors? What is the environment for private equity, debt financing, or even privatization over the next year and into the election year of 2016?
Respected analyst Drew Marcus leads the discussion of these and other key issues for the business of Hispanic radio, and it?s information you can use to catch and keep the eyes of investors now and in the future.
FRIDAY, February 6, is the cutoff date for the special rate of $149 at the Omni Park West Dallas. Don?t miss out! Click here for all the information.
