As one of the main presenters, Cristy will speak to the opportunities and challenges that the convergence of multicultural marketing and social media offer to communicators, marketers and entrepreneurs around the world. Topics to be discussed include:

— What is the difference between using social media for multicultural marketing and communications vs. general market marketing and communications?

— How do you deal with the cultural issues and language challenges when creating and implementing multicultural social campaigns?

— What are the best technologies/tools to help you listen, monitor, and engage specific cultures, ethnicities and groups via social media/social networking?

“Social media and multicultural marketing are very similar disciplines in that both require a deep understanding of one’s target audience and a willingness to be an engaged participant in the conversation,” remarked Clavijo-Kish. “As such, understanding how and when to integrate social media into a multicultural campaign is becoming a valuable knowledge-set for marketers and communicators that are looking to extend the impact of marketing, brand-building and public relations efforts.”
