ANA ANA 2013 Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference Presented by Clear Channel Media + Entertainment, November 3-5, 2013
"Marketing to a Multicultural Nation" is the theme of the 2013 ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference. Just last year, it was widely reported for the first time, that racial and ethnic minorities make up more than half the children born in the U.S. While this shift was expected, the official announcement was nonetheless a landmark as the multicultural market is increasingly becoming the new general market. And at last year's event, Walmart shared the forecast that 100 percent of the growth over the next five years for Walmart would be driven by multicultural consumers, highlighting the importance of marketing to a multicultural nation. The 2013 ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference will help marketers navigate this changing landscape and provide case studies and ideas on driving business growth.
