Sponsor and Exhibit at the 2018 MDHBC & Expo

Tuesday, September 4 | Bethesda North Marriott Conference & Center

Sponsoring & Exhibiting the 2018 Maryland Hispanic Business Conference is a smart investment. Hispanic business is the fastest growing segment of the Maryland economy. With a growth rate nearly four times that of the general economy, forward-thinking decision-makers are making the smart choice of targeting exposure among the 21,000 Hispanic-owned businesses in the state.

Participating in this Conference is the best investment you will make for your business. Hispanic entrepreneurs are fueling our nation’s economic growth. In fact, Hispanic-owned businesses surpassed 4 million, contributing $661 billion in combined annual in 2015. Hispanic-owned businesses increased 15 times the national growth rate. Statistics show that Hispanics spent 1.5 trillion U.S. dollars in the retail and CPG market in 2015. The buying power is expected to increase to 1.7 trillion U.S. dollars by 2017. Products targeting the Hispanic population are seen as a great opportunity for retailers and CPG companies as Hispanics will represent approximately 28.6 percent of the total U.S. population by 2060. Hispanic entrepreneurs are America’s business future.
