MIAMI, FL – May 27, 2015 â€“ (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Vme TV, the only national Spanish-language television network in the United States affiliated with public television stations, has partnered with Casa Latina Home Expo, a bilingual home expo for Hispanics in Miami, Florida, that will take place on Saturday, May 30, 2015 and Sunday, May 31, 2015 at the Miami Airport Convention Center.
The event, which encourages attendees to better all aspects of their day-to-day routine and lifestyle with its message “Improve Your Home, Improve Your Life,” will host a variety of informative workshops and activities focused on DIY for the home, health for the family, financial literacy, and kid-friendly activities to provide attendees with the proper resources for home-life improvement.
â€œThe home is the core of the Hispanic family and as a national broadcast channel that focuses on providing content to inspire and promote upward mobility in the Hispanic American community, Vme TV is pleased to partner with Casa Latina Home Expo. This event shares the networkâ€™s values and vision of providing Hispanic Americans with new ways to meet their home-life needs and help them overcome daily challenges,â€ said Vme TVâ€™s vice-president of marketing, Ralph Parkman.
Widely known for its high quality, entertaining and educational content, Vme TV has become an ideal resource for Latina moms who seek alternative Spanish-language programming that is enriching for the whole family.
