Influence Communications selected to plan the Democracy in the Americas Symposium 2015

DITAS2015, an annual gathering of world dignitaries and leaders who seek to improve democracy, will take place on October 15, 2015.

(Miami, FL) – Influence Communications is proud to announce we have been selected by the Zambrano Foundation to plan and execute the prestigious Democracy in the Americas Symposium 2015 (DITAS2015), to will take place on October 15, 2015 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

DITAS is an annual gathering of world dignitaries, multi-national corporate leaders, prominent scholars, students and social innovators who discuss the latest trends in policy, trade, technology, social innovation and economic development to improve democracy in the hemisphere. The conference is sponsored and organized by the Zambrano Foundation, whose vision affirms that democracy is more than a political system; it is a way of life.

As part of its preparations for this year’s conference, DITAS has announced Andre Rodriguez, President of Influence Communications, as its Executive Director.

“The entire Influence Communications team is proud to be part of DITAS2015,” said Mr. Rodriguez. “It is the view of the Zambrano Foundation for DITAS to become the voice of the future of democracy in the hemisphere, and establish DITAS as a meeting point for democratic thoughts. We are working to ensure that DITAS2015 exceeds the successes of the previous symposiums while paving the way for an even brighter future for DITAS.”

This year’s event will be held within the umbrella of the Florida International Trade and Culture Expo (FITCE), organized by Broward County and under the leadership of Commissioner Dale V.C. Holness. This exhibition attracts hundreds of international and US companies looking to expand their businesses in South Florida, providing tools and resources for those who want to live and work in South Florida.

In previous years, DITAS has presented leaders such as President Luis Alberto Lacalle of Uruguay, President Vinicio Cerezo of Guatemala, former president of the Inter-American Development Bank Enrique V. Iglesias, Cuban journalist Yoani Sanchez, among others. To learn more about previous DITAS conferences, please visit:
