Children under 5 may attend for free, but older children are required to pay a registration fee.

Please note that because evening, off-site events will include the serving of alcohol we cannot allow attendees to bring their children.  

 

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 please respect our sponsors, and attend only those events hosted by them.  

 

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 2019 possible through their financial support, we ask that influencers please refrain from distributing or socially promoting, non-sponsor products to attendees. You may, of course, promote your own channel or platform.
