LOS ANGELES – The Hispanic Public Relations Association, Public Relations Society of America L.A. chapter and International Advertising and the International Association of Business Communicators are presenting a breakfast panel titled “Marketing to the New America: Gaining a Share of the Trillion-Dollar Multicultural Economy.”

The panel is taking place on Wednesday, September 1.

With the 2010 U.S. Census expected to confirm a rapidly growing minority population, corporate America must re-examine its marketing programs to embrace Hispanics, Asians and African Americans as the nucleus of the new “general market.”  In the next two to three years, the purchasing power of this multicultural market segment is expected to top the trillion dollar mark.

How can we as PR professionals adapt?  Exactly what actions are necessary to better serve and communicate with these rapidly growing populations?  How can a marketer garner its fair share of this exponential growth?

Panelists will share research, in-depth case studies and insights to help you tap into the significant buying power of multicultural markets.  Hear from some of the industry’s most innovative multicultural leaders on the research, client and agency side.
