Upcoming Meetings

How to Market in a Diverse Marketplace

Thursday, September 11, 2014
2:30PM - 5:00PM ET

ARF Multicultural Roundtable: A lively discussion about the full spectrum of “how” to engage a multicultural audience

There is no debate that today’s audience is a multicultural one. And it is also clear that there is no one “right way” to market to a multicultural consumer group. But every approach has its strengths and weaknesses, and this event is a rare opportunity to hear them all. While your company may approach the multicultural consumer in one way, there are other companies choosing a different path. Come hear from a variety of multicultural thought leaders about what they’ve seen work – approaches, structures, tools, techniques, strategies and program.

A conversation not a presentation, this event promises to be unfiltered, candid and energetic.

Moderated by Dr. Jake Beniflah, Executive Director of the Center for Multicultural Science, the roundtable includes:

Esther Franklin, EVP, Head of Starcom Media Group’s America’s Experience Strategy
John Zatwarnicki, VP, Practice Area Lead, Nielsen
Mebrulin Francisco, Partner, Director Marketing Analytics, Multicultural, Group M
John Burn, Hispanic Shopper Marketing Lead, Geometry Global
Gabriela Mangieri Harper, Multicultural Marketing Manager, Subway
