The Hispanic Motorcoach Council is hosting a day-long spring event tailored to the needs of Hispanic and indigenous business owners in the industry. It will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 21, 2024, at the Park MGM Las Vegas from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Time.

The agenda promises to be dynamic, filled with invaluable educational sessions and networking opportunities. These sessions are designed to reinvigorate your business strategies and provide insights from industry experts.
