Sears and Kmart made LATISM11 smell like Navidad

You come to a conference on the first night full of anxiety, fears, expectations and butterflies in the stomach. The first impression was key to the success for LATISM’11. This was thanks to the amazing welcome reception launched by Sears Holdings. It was so elegantly put together. I was hoping that attendees payed attention to all the little details. The calming music after a long trip, the fabulous food, the Noche Buena decorations, the models, the table arrangements and so many other detallitos that made it perfect for the Bienvenida.

I was so glad to see on the post-conference survey that so many attendees really appreciated the warm welcome on Wednesday evening in windy Chicago with their Noche Buena party that rocked the house.

“The Sears-Kmart welcome reception was the best – it felt like real navidad”

“My favorite was the first night.  It was cold outside and faraway.  When I got there? I felt the spirit of LATISM all over.  It was warm, all the hugs, Noche Buena! Just perfect”

Many loved the fact that the models were real.  Some curvy Latinas rocked the house.  Others loved the dancing, the food, the feeling of Noche Buena.  It even smelled like navidad!

The other hit was the Cafecito breaks! Even my demanding Italian husband gave 5 stars to the cafe cargado served by Sears and Kmart.  It was interesting to see all the feedback about this part.

“Esa musiquita navidena me ponia en buen humor cada vez que pasaba”

“I made my shopping list while waiting for my coffee on line.  Loved the vast selection of toys”

And the makeover booth was such a fun place to explore new accessories, take great pictures and just relax!

“The Sears – Kmart Makeover Booth made me feel like a real Diva!”

“The makeover booth with Sears was fun.  I tried everything they had there”

Thank you Sears – Kmart for bringing Navidad to LATISM’11 and for highlighting the best of our culture with the cafecito breaks, the villancicos, the decorations, the makeover and so much more!  you Rock!
