Networking With Latinos in Entertainment

AXIS will host its first event of 2003 titled ?The AXIS Wrap Party? on Thursday February 13, 2003 at The Century Club featuring invited guests Peter Murietta, Jacob Vargas, Lupe Ontiveros, Julio Menchoso, Delilah Cotto, Nick Gonzalez and Rick Gonzalez and many more.

The evening will begin at 6:00 PM with the Executive Producer and Creator of ?Greetings From Tucson? Peter Murrieta along with several cast members, writers, producers and directors in a 90-minute panel. It will highlight the point of view from the Executive Producer of the show and his team as to the future of Latinos in Hollywood. A Q&A will follow with the audience.

The night will continue with a 90 minute networking reception including special guests from the cast of ?Greetings From Tucson,? Empire?s Delilah Cotto, Biker Boyz? Rick Gonzalez and Resurrection Boulevard?s Nick Gonzalez. This is an opportunity to meet other professionals in the industry and build your network. AXIS encourages everyone at each one of their sessions to meet at least 10 professionals and take home their business cards!

The evening will continue with an open forum where you can network with the friends you?ve just made and be entertained by one of Southern California?s hottest Flamenco bands ?Los Bandidos Del Amor.? They cover the Gypsy Kings with their own flavor and style and you will be amazed at their crisp and entertaining sound.

AXIS is a premiere organization, engaging in education, resourcing and networking of Latino entertainers in the Film, Television and Music Industries. In addition, AXIS provides a backbone email network comprised of over 5,000 business owners and individuals who are Latino or pro-Latino in regards to Latinos in Entertainment.

In the past years AXIS has been involved in organizing many similar events. Speakers and attendees have included: Santiago Pozo, Gabriel Reyes, Dennis Leoni, Franc Reyes, Roselyn Sanchez, Edward James Olmos, Paul Rodriguez, Laura Elena Harring, and many others.

If you plan to attend ?The Wrap Party?, I?d suggest you get there early as AXIS has been known to draw in crowds of 500 or more. Ticket price is $20.00, but you can take advantage of their $10.00 offer by sending in your RSVP to info@totalaxis.com. Last day to RSVP is February 12.
