ALPFA’s 46th Annual Convention
This convention is the largest, most impressive gathering of Latino professionals and students coming together from across the United States to learn, network, mentor and develop as leaders. ALPFA inspires and motivates them to become better business leaders. It also provided key opportunities for companies to recruit talent and expand their presence in the Latino market. Latinos represent 95% of attendees; 70% professionals and 30% collegiate students.
Each year the Convention is hosted at a different state. This year, the convention will be held at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.
