940 Million Dollar Man and Recent Buyer of Anaheim Angels -Arturo Moreno- to Keynote National Latino Business Expo

LOS ANGELES - In a rare public appearance outside of the Angels’ home field, Arturo Moreno, owner of the Anaheim Angels, will keynote the Latin Business Association’s National Latino Business Expo Luncheon, scheduled for October 21 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  Moreno recently purchased the Anaheim Angels franchise from The Walt Disney Companies for $180 million dollars.

The Expo is the largest Latino business-to-business event in the nation and is expected to attract over 8,000 of the most successful Latino Entrepreneurs in the United States and from Latin America.  “The Expo and the LBA represent the gateway to the fastest growing business sector in the national economy and to the fastest growing consumer market in North America,” said Ruth Lopez Williams, LBA Chairman of the Board.  “When a major CEO ranked in the top 250 by Forbes Magazine keynotes one of our events, it not only provides our members with world class thinking, but it underscores the importance of Latino entrepreneurship in the economic engine of the U.S.”

The 8th Annual Expo includes a trade show floor with over 500 exhibitors; a Loan Pavilion for businesses seeking start-up or expansion capital; a Procurement Pavilion for vendors to meet corporate buyers; Business Seminars featuring Franklin Covey, La Opinion (US largest Spanish language Newspaper) and ABC7, and a Business Solutions Pavilion featuring high-tech business and personal tools.  For more information, call 800-371-4LBA or visit www.LBAusa.com.
