4th Annual Hispanic Expo comes to Edison

July 21, 2014 at 2:55 PM

EDISON, NJ - The Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce will host 4th Annual Hispanic Business Expo July 22.

The expo allows for professionals to network with and learn about the rapidly expanding Hispanic market in Central Jersey. It also allows for Hispanic professionals to network with the non-Hispanic market and learn about breaking out of the comfort zone.

The Expo will take place Tuesday, July 22, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Pines Manor, 2085 Lincoln Highway (Route 27 South), Edison, NJ.

Ramon De Leon, a social media strategist who speaks to audiences around the world, will give the keynote address at the Expo, now in its fourth year. De Leon is widely known for his ascent to being a highly successful businessperson who began his career delivering pizza part-time for Domino’s.

Middlesex County has seen a 45-percent increase in the Hispanic population since the 2000 Census, with Latinos comprising 18 percent of the county’s population. As the Hispanic community—and particularly its business community—continues to grow, maintaining sustained personal and business relationships is critical, said Luis De La Hoz, a vice president at the Intersect Fund, a New Brunswick-based micro-lender to small business entrepreneurs. De La Hoz also chairs the Small Business Council as a member of the Middlesex Chamber’s board of directors.

Highlights from the 3rd Annual Hispanic Business Expo

“This Expo has grown into the premiere event for the Hispanic business community, as well as for the greater business community, to meet new people and explore new opportunities,” he said.

Last year’s Expo drew hundreds businesses representing the nonprofit, health care, retail, finance and hospitality sectors.

“Attendance at this event is a must for anyone interested in Middlesex County,” De La Hoz said.
