The annual "Latino Marketplace" was designed as a one-stop-shop event. It attracts meeting planners from the DC area to meet, network and discuss business opportunities with hotel companies, CVBs and other meeting suppliers and vendors. It is unique in that it serves as a tradeshow and a networking reception meant to create a casual and festive atmosphere.

Imagine doing weeks of site selection research in one evening, one place, in a casual and festive atmosphere. This is just what happened at our second annual Latino Marketplace and Tradeshow! The reception and tradeshow created an opportunity to make new supplier connections, learn more about destinations and venues, network with fellow meeting planners, and celebrate our Hispanic heritage. Attendees enjoyed free drinks and a complimentary quesadilla and fajita bar!

The evening also include a Grand Prize drawing for two round trip tickets to Miami courtesy of the Greater Miami CVB and a two-night weekend stay at the DoubleTree Miami. Other drawings include a two-night stay for two at the Tides Inn, and many more!
