We are looking forward to seeing you at our 2024 Events

The LDC Convenings are a premier gathering of national leaders to discuss business opportunities when actively and intentionally engaging the U.S. Latino market.

All sessions evolve around the most recent fact-based data from top American economic research centers and Latino consumer insights. Our flagship, bi-annual LDC Convening series is designed as a win-win event where participants learn more about this New Mainstream market, the fastest growing in the United States.

Our invitation-only, private events follow Chatham House rules to encourage frank and productive dialogue. Our LDC Board of Directors has hosted 20 LDC Convenings in the last few years, featuring more than 90 CEOs and other top c-suite executive speakers.

The event takes place over two days, starting with a reception and a sit-down dinner the first day and a series of sessions the next day, from 8am to 2pm. We traditionally offer breakfast and a lunch buffet for attendees.
