2023 Conference Agenda Is Now Online!

The action-packed agenda for the 2023 Hispanic Radio Conference is online now, offering sessions on content, revenue, talent management, technology, and the crucial topic of Hispanic radio and political and social issues

Take a look at the agenda HERE, and keep an eye out for updates.

Here’s what attendees are saying about the 2022 Hispanic Radio Conference:

“Radio Ink’s Hispanic Conference is a must-attend annual event that sparks impactful conversations and empowers the Hispanic multimedia industry. It’s a unique platform that brings together the best in the business to discuss new ideas, best practices, trends, and strategies. No matter if you’re a seasoned broadcaster or advertiser seeking to get a better understanding of the power of Hispanic radio, everyone who attends this event always walks away learning key valuable insights.” — Albert Rodriguez, President/COO, Spanish Broadcasting System

“There was learning to be done by every department in a radio station.  Programming, sales management, engineering, and even regulatory information were a part of the program. People who were new to radio were exposed to issues they didn’t know were a part of the radio ecology; longtime broadcasters had a chance to hear new ideas about establishing radio’s digital identity. It was a master course in radio trends and best practices.”
Ben Downs, Vice President and General Manager, Bryan Broadcasting Corp.

“This year’s Hispanic Radio Conference may have been the best one in the conference’s illustrious 14-year history.  It saw both U.S. Senator (and likely U.S. presidential candidate) Marco Rubio, as well as newly appointed NAB CEO Curtis LeGeyt speak out about the vital role of Hispanic radio in our society, and it introduced the industry to its newest and largest Latina-owned Hispanic radio company in Latino Media Network, while pulling together industry veterans across generations.  It truly highlighted the evolution and maturity of Hispanic radio in the United States. Beyond all that, the networking was humming at all times and the panels were riveting.  I’m looking forward to see how they top that next year.”
— Frank Montero, Managing Partner, Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC

“The top voices in Spanish radio are always at Radio Ink’s Hispanic Radio Conference.”
Angelica  “Angie” Balderas, Senior VP Integrated Marketing Solutions, Entravision Communications

“For anyone wanting to stay current or break into the Hispanic audio marketplace, Radio Ink’s Hispanic Radio Conference is a must. Two days of informative sessions and networking opportunities with industry thought leaders and influencers. I highly recommend the conference.”
— Matt Feinberg, Chief Strategy Officer, HRN (Gen Media)
