Ohio, in Chicago.

The event will offer a forum for discussion about the demographic change that the United States is experiencing due to the unprecedented growth of the Hispanic population and the opportunity for greater cooperation and commerce, driven in great part by the dramatic growth of the use of the Spanish language in the United States. The sessions take place on Thursday, Dec. 8 from 4:30pm to 9pm, and Friday, Dec. 9, 9am to 3pm. The panels will be conducted in English and Spanish, with simultaneous translations, and with the aim of opening a national and international dialogue to generate ideas for leveraging these opportunities.
