About the Conference

November 6–8, 2022 | Hollywood, Fla. and Virtual




The latest Census results disclose that the United States is more diverse and multiracial than ever. The multicultural population increased from 36.3 percent in 2010 to 42.2 percent in 2020 and will be the majority in the not-too-distant future.

Join us at this year's Multicultural Marketing & Diversity conference, the annual "go to" event to become inspired and to learn the best ways to reach the multicultural market, and to discuss and debate industry issues. Today, this work, and the impact it has, is more important than ever before. Now in its 24th year, this highly rated conference assembles prominent senior thought leaders and client-side marketing professionals who produce multicultural marketing, DEI, and supplier diversity programs across a wide spectrum of industries.

As Marc Pritchard, chief brand officer of P&G, says, "If you're not doing multicultural marketing, you're not doing marketing."


Here's what some of last year's attendees had to say:

“The content was overall extremely good and relevant. I have never been to a conference with such a diverse group of first rate speakers, topics and attendees — really well done.“

“It was a powerhouse event filled with inspirational and impactful work.”

“Rare insights and material that can't be Google'd and seem never to be showcased in other spaces.”


Join us to hear how leading professionals are tackling the industry's most pressing issues, sharing their successful strategies, and providing some best practices. And connect with peers from businesses large and small to expand your personal network and sphere of influence.

Register today to learn what's now, new, and next!

Why is ANA holding the 2022 Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference in Florida?

ANA has received a number of inquiries from our members, asking, "Why is ANA holding the Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference in Florida, given the passage of the 'Don't Say Gay' bill, which became law on July 1, 2022?"

The agreement to secure the 2022 venue was signed over three years ago, in June 2019. We need to honor our contractual obligation to hold the event there, or risk substantial financial penalties. As a nonprofit, we cannot afford those penalties.

The ANA is committed to the LGBTQ+ community.

    • The focus of the ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference was expanded to include LGBTQ+ content many years ago.
    • The ANA Multicultural Excellence Awards has a LGBTQ+ category.
    • In 2021, ANA established the LGBTQ+ Forum to educate marketers on best practices for inclusion of LGBTQ+ in advertising, provide support for LGBTQ+ marketers, and drive more meaningful community-brand connections.

The ANA shares the goal of GLADD and Equality Florida of ensuring that all students have a healthy environment to learn and thrive and for all parents to know their families are included and respected. The ANA is also mindful that many of our members live and work in Florida and will continue its affirmative inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community and LGBTQ+ marketing at this and future Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conferences. The ANA's commitment to the LGBTQ+ community remains consistent regardless of the physical location of this conference.

The 2023 ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference is already scheduled to be held in California. Plans for the 2024 conference are still TBD, and we will monitor the situation in Florida (and elsewhere) before any final venue decisions are made.
