Andrew McCaskill, Nielsen’s Senior Vice President, Global Communications and
Multicultural Marketing, and long-time diversity advocate, breaks it down. “With 43% of the 75 million Millennials in the U.S. identifying as African American, Hispanic or Asian, if a brand doesn’t have a multicultural strategy, it doesn’t have a growth strategy,” he says.
Our target audience has a buying power of $1.3 trillion currently and based on gains in population, income and education, it’s estimated to rise to $1.54 trillion by 2022.
Promoting products during CVFAC Expo provides necessary beneficial exposure for your company’s brand. Companies that can clearly identify and promote products that address the unique needs of African-Americans can increase their presence and
market share. African Americans are early adopters of new technology and heavy users of social media and more likely to share your companies products and services with their friends.
