NGL Media, a leading Latino video marketing solutions company, is presenting the first ever Latino Digital Video Summit hosted by Disney ABC Television Group, taking place in Los Angeles on Tuesday, October 29th on The Walt Disney Studio Lot from 2pm – 7pm.

The Latino Digital Video Summit will be unlike any event ever assembled with an exclusive focus on how Latinos are influencing the Digital video space from a media, marketing and entertainment perspective.  The summit will bring together a unique set of constituents consisting of:

– Latino TV & Web Show Producers

– Digital Video Content Distributors

– Media & Marketing Executives

– New Mainstream Media Companies

– Fortune 500 Advertisers, Media & Entertainment Companies

– Latino Celebrities

“Unlike any time in the history of media and entertainment, Latinos are making a significant impact in new and profound ways.  As screens continue to multiply, the democratization process through which video content is being produced and distributed has become self-evident.  Coupled with Latinos heavily over-indexing in both their adoption of technology and their creation of original content, they’ve become core contributors to a new and emerging Digital democracy,” said NGL Media CEO, David Chitel.

The Latino Digital Video Summit will feature a combination of panels and hard-hitting case studies focused on advancing the conversation around Latinos’ influence in Digital video media, marketing and entertainment.   Panels will dig deep into how Latino video content is being created, distributed and supported by advertisers who are eager to digitally connect with the Latino audience.  NGL Media will be presenting video case studies highlighting industry success stories from some of its blue chip advertiser clients.   A celebrity sit-down will cap-off the conversation, followed by a cocktail networking reception on the Walt Disney Studio Lot.
