Chicago.- Due to the persistence of Covid-19, Negocios Now announced a virtual celebration of Latinos 40 under 40. Last year’s class will now be recognized on July 17, 2020, with Rémy Martin, as the main sponsor.
“We can’t predicate to know when we will meet again to celebrate our Latinos 40 under 40 the way we have for the past four years, but we do know that the pandemic will not stop us on our mission to recognize the most valuable of our young Latinos”, said Clemente Nicado, Publisher of Negocios Now.
As part of the celebration, Rémy Martin will be hosting a short demonstration so that everyone can make the perfect cocktail.
The Latinos 40 Under 40 event was originally scheduled for March 26th, 2020, but was postponed by Nicado Publishing earlier that month due to the safety of all participants.
“We hope that all 40 awardees can join our virtual celebration on July 17th and allow us to express how proud we are of their leadership and of being part of our fifth edition of Latinos 40 under 40 in Chicago”, said Nicado.
The hour-long event will begin at 5:30 pm CST. It will be hosted by Ana Belaval, a reporter for the WGN Morning News and three-time Emmy Award winner.
Since the beginning of the 40 Under 40 event, Rémy Martin has been a dedicated sponsor for the special edition in digital format and the in-person celebration. This year it also has the support of Wintrust, ComEd, BMO, Monterrey Security, Hispanic Star, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Accenture, a Fortune Global 500 company, has also recently joined as a sponsor of the virtual celebration.
All 40 young people will be receiving an award from Negocios Now during the live event. The ceremony will also feature the awarding of three special prizes to the Rising Star, Youngest Latino, and the Leader of the Pack.
Also, Rémy Martin will be awarding a special award to one female and one male candidate. These candidates display exemplary roles in their commitments to the community.
A toast to all 40 under 40!
