Our Brand:

To sharpen our focus and provide clarity on who we are, what we do, and who we represent, we are rebranding as the Hispanic Marketing Council (HMC), the only organization with subject matter expertise in Hispanic marketing, devoted to promoting the critical role of Hispanic marketing, media and specialist firms in today’s marketplace. It is a fact: segment marketing has never been more critical. Brands must understand that marketing to Hispanics as a core practice for long-term growth and relevance is a business imperative. Without overt and focused inclusion efforts coupled with investment targeting Hispanics, marketers' efforts are simply out of touch, out of tune and will fall short of their potential.
