MIAMI - Latinx Travel Club, a digital media company powered by Ventyour Inc., highlighting the beauty, power and diversity of Latinx people through a portfolio of travel, tech, music, and other channels, will host its inaugural Latinx Travel Summit from October 15 – 17, 2021 in Miami and Miami Beach.
Intended to connect, inspire and support Latinx entrepreneurs, the Summit evolved from the Latinx Travel Club’s primary mission to create closer ties between Latinx people and their origins through travel, music, and cultural platforms.
“We are cultivating a community that empowers and recognizes Latinx entrepreneurs,” says Pablo Segarra, Esq., CEO of Latinx Travel Club. “As a gathering of the youngest, most diverse, and fastest growing populations in the world, we will be celebrating the ingenuity and innovation of Latinx people. Our Summit will be the platform for connecting businesses, founders, organizations and thought-leaders that focus on Millennial and Generation Z audiences.”
The Summit will highlight the economic, and cultural impact of what is one of the world’s fastest-growing populations, most diverse and youngest, with an estimated 23 percent of the U.S. millennial population. “We’re often told we are the minority, when in fact we are the majority of the Western Hemisphere,” says Michael Watson, Co-Founder of the Latinx Travel Club. The Summit will focus on entrepreneurs, as Latinx small business owners are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S.
Miami because of its large Latin American and Caribbean population and for the city’s growing reputation as the next tech hub made it the clear winner to host the inaugural Summit. “Miami leads the way as more entrepreneurs and investors relocate from traditional tech cities to emerging startup ecosystems,” continues Segarra. “The city also has a vibrant LGBTQ community and a non-Spanish-speaking Latinx diaspora community including Haitians, Brazilians, Jamaicans. We look forward to seeing all of them represented at the Summit.”
