Latino Coalition Pushes Business Forward During Economic Summit In DC
Washington, DC -- (http://www.myprgenie.com
) -- The Latino Coalition, one of the most effective national Latino groups in addressing issues that directly impact Hispanic businesses and consumers, presents its annual two-day Economic Summit at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C.
U.S. Small Business Administrator Karen G. Mills and Senators Robert Menéndez (D-NJ) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and John Cornyn (R-TX) have confirmed their attendance to address the nearly sold-out audience of Latino/Latina-American entrepreneurs, as have an A-List of corporation notables including representatives from Fortune 500 Intuit, Kodak, PG&E and Hewlett Packard.
The Latino Coalition, through its support and sponsorship of national procurement events, has facilitated over 75,000 appointments that have netted an estimated $8 billion in contracts. The 2009 Economic Summit garnered more than 400 one-on-one appointments between buyers and Latino entrepreneurs from across the nation. This year’s attendance by the U.S Department of Commerce, General Service Administration (GAO), the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, mark this as this the best attended Procurement Session in the event’s history. Chairing this year’s business matchmaking session will be Daniel F. Sturdivant II, Assistant Director for Outreach, U.S. Department for Homeland Security, who will also serve as moderator during the “How to do Business with the Government” panel that is part of this two-day Summit.
TLC’s Chairman, and former U.S. Small Business Administrator (2001-2006) Hector V. Barreto, commented: “As the economy turns around, more and more businesses are expanding, so this is an ideal moment to invest in growth.”
This year’s conference is supported in part by a national Media Partnership with WomensRadio.
