Leading Latino non-profit organization to host a historical convention at the Waldorf-Astoria

New York, New York – LATISM, the nations top leading organization of Latinos in Tech Innovation and
Social Media, announced today it’s commemorative return to NYC for its 5 th annual convention, to be held
this year at the historical New York City landmark, the Waldorf-Astoria, September 19-21 st 2013. This
year’s event aims to demonstrate the evolution of LATISM, and also, its future through innovative new
technology uses.

Marking a historical movement, which has shifted and transformed the way in which we impact our social,
civic and economic status, LATISM’13 convention will be drawing top thought leaders, organizations,
advocates, bloggers, developers and more from all across the world, engaging the developing discussion of
Business Empowerment, Technology Leadership, Health Innovation and Transforming Education, LATISM’s
core pillars.

“In the last 5 years, LATISM has grown from a group of passionate Latinos to a movement of leaders in
tech innovation and new media. Returning to NYC will help us remember where we come from and how
united, we have achieved the unimaginable.” Said Ana Roca Castro, LATISM Founder and Chair. “Most
important, LATISM’13 will set the tone for the next 5 years. We are ready to revolutionize education,
health, technology and business from the untapped creative Latino angle. We over-index in mobile and
media consumption. Now it’s time to start taking our fair share of leadership in the space to close the new
digital divide.”

At the helm of technology and the way we interact, LATISM has sparked a unique approach in connecting
key grassroots initiatives through forward-thinking tech innovations. LATISM continues to foster
engagement by bridging the gap in communications and the way we raise awareness, carving its’
