The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) will hold its 2017 National Convention Kickoff Reception on June 15, 2017 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at the iconic Omni Hotel in Dallas, Texas. The reception is in anticipation of the association’s 2017 National Convention “Driving America's Business Future” – the largest gathering of Hispanic business leaders in America – which will take place from October 1-3. To register for the National Convention, visit ushcc.com/convention.
The USHCC National Convention brings together Hispanic business owners, corporate executives and members of more than 200 local Hispanic chambers of commerce from across the country, offering the opportunity to establish strategic, long-lasting business partnerships through dialogue, matchmaking and learning. Signature events of the USHCC National Convention include the Million Dollar Club (MDC), HBE Elite Luncheon, the ERG Summit, the Women in Business and Leadership Luncheon (WIBLL) and the CEO Panel.
Toyota Motor Corporation - the leading global automotive manufacturer – will serve as Corporate Chair for this year's National Convention. “The USHCC is excited to have Toyota, a true champion of American small business, as our Corporate Chair,” said USHCC President & CEO Javier Palomarez. “As a company that invests heavily in developing small and diverse businesses into strategic partners, Toyota embodies the healthy and profitable approach to building a 21st Century supply chain. Toyota’s commitment to quality, safety, innovation, and the overall well-being of our planet is instrumental in driving the future of American business and supporting communities across the nation.”
Don Salazar, USHCC Chairman said: “We are so proud to be returning to Dallas for our National Convention. As a hub of global commerce and the home of thousands of successful Hispanic Business Enterprises, it was a natural choice, and we couldn’t be prouder.”
Toyota has been a part of the cultural fabric in the U.S. and North America for 60 years, and is committed to advancing sustainable, next-generation mobility through our Toyota and Lexus brands. During that time, Toyota has created a tremendous value chain as our teams have contributed to world-class design, engineering, and assembly of more than 33 million cars and trucks in North America, where we operate 14 manufacturing plants (10 in the U.S.) and directly employ more than 46,000 people (more than 36,000 in the U.S.). Our 1,800 North American dealerships (nearly 1,500 in the U.S.) sold almost 2.7 million cars and trucks (2.45 million in the U.S.) in 2016 – and about 85 percent of all Toyota vehicles sold over the past 15 years are still on the road today.
