DishLATINO Named "Top Marketer to Hispanic Audiences" at Portada Hispanic Advertising and Media Awards

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DishLATINO has been recognized as the "Top Marketer to Hispanic Audiences" at the Portada Hispanic Advertising and Media Awards, which took place on September 17 in New York City.

The award is a recognition of DishLATINO's successful campaigns to date, including those featuring actor/ writer/ director/ producer Eugenio Derbez. DishLATINO first introduced Derbez as the new brand spokesperson in the fourth quarter of 2014 through a series of TV ads that chronicled his move from Mexico to the United States. Those ads were known as "aeropuerto," "taqueria" and "instalación." Adding to the story was a digital ad spoofing Jean-Claude Van Damme's famous "Epic Split."

DishLATINO went on to feature Derbez in a series of spots highlighting the brand's soccer offering, including the TV ad "Cancha," and the viral "streaker" digital campaign. Streaker launched with an April Fool's stunt featuring a "leaked" cell phone video of an unidentified fan streaking across the field. After generating significant buzz, DishLATINO revealed that the streaker was in fact Derbez and allowed viewers to choose from three alternate endings. DishLATINO also created several direct response TV ads, some of which featured Derbez's legendary character Aaron Abasolo.

"We are committed to delivering the best entertainment experience to Hispanic consumers living in the U.S., and our marketing is designed to connect with this audience in a way that is both relevant and entertaining," said Alfredo Rodriguez, vice president of DishLATINO. "We are honored to be recognized by Portada for our work to engage this important, growing audience."

"The Top Marketer to Hispanic Audiences Award is given to client side marketers who have substantially contributed to the quality of Hispanic marketing as a discipline over the last twelve months," said Marcos Baer, publisher of Portada. "DishLATINO executed innovative Hispanic marketing campaigns with strong results."

DishLATINO developed these campaigns with agency support from Miami-based Marca and Havas Worldwide Chicago.
