Washington, DC- February 18, 2005 – The National Association of Hispanic Publications, Inc. (NAHP, Inc.) will be holding its 2005 National Convention and Annual Expo at the exclusive Loews Hotel, in downtown Philadelphia. Hundreds of association members, including both Hispanic publishers and editors from all over the States, are expected to meet members of the public and private sectors, among them business leaders, corporate representatives, advertising agencies, government officials and community leaders. The convention will take place at the exclusive Loews Hotel in Philadelphia from Wednesday, March 9 through Saturday, March 12.

“Nuestra casa es su casa!” said Mayor John F. Street, acknowledging the presence of NAHP’s members this coming month in his city. “The City of Philadelphia is looking forward to welcoming the members of the National Association of Hispanic Publishers for their Annual Convention and Expo this March. We hope you will enjoy our wonderful city, our delightful restaurants, great shopping venues and the history of America which has opened the door to so many dreams,” said the mayor in a statement released this week by his press office.

Philadelphia, the former U.S. capital, and today better known as “The City of Brotherly Love,” has become a favorite destination for the largest and most influential Hispanic organizations in the US.
