Who Are We?

is a social, professional, and friendly network of Latino individuals working in the hospitality industry who aspire to excel professionally and nurture business relationships.

Our goal is to create a nurturing environment for all Latino meeting professionals, fostering the exchange of ideas and learning to embrace the concept of living our lives in color. Through unique events and professional relationships, we will ultimately enhance our passion for excellence.

In 2012, the Latino buying power was estimated at $1.2 trillion ( according to the Selig Center for Economic Growth) and it is projected that it will reach $1.5 trillion by 2015.
