If you are looking to secure funding to cover your registration and travel costs, we recommend that you leverage your existing relationships with brands and agencies to help identify potential sponsor partnerships.

What if a company that is not a sponsor invites me to an off-site brand event?
This practice is frowned upon in the industry, as it undermines those paying sponsors who have helped to make an event of this magnitude possible. We ask that our attendees to please respect our sponsors, and attend only those events that are hosted by official event sponsors.

Can I distribute materials/product from a brand that I’m working with that is not an Event sponsor?
 No. Out of respect to our sponsors who have helped to make Hispanicize 2018 possible through their financial support, we ask that bloggers please refrain from distributing or socially promoting non-sponsor products to attendees.
