This annual event is presented by leading television business publications Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News.
The Hispanic Television Summit is the signature annual event for those in the business of video and television intended for Hispanic audiences. It attracts over 500 top executives in television distribution, programming, production, advertising, marketing, research, technology and finance from the U.S., Latin America and Europe.
The session will focus on how the Hispanic TV viewing audience has proven its influence with networks and sponsors, especially with regard to the two biggest sports properties: the Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup. The three guests will discuss network plans for the future designed to increase options for Hispanic viewers that will incorporate sponsors.
"This is a unique opportunity to get multiple perspectives on the future of sports television for Latino viewers," said Louis Hillelson, Vice President and Group Publisher of Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. "The discussion will be especially worthwhile for our attendees since each of these individuals are well-regarded and accomplished within their own field of expertise in the sports television business."

He was presented with the Achievement in Hispanic Television Award at the 2nd Annual Hispanic Television Summit, so it's a special honor for us to have him return this year."
