Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards
If you’re a fan of Latin music and culture, you simply have to make sure that you attend the Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards. This annual event is probably the most important event in the Latin music industry. Not only does it bring together a massive crowd of elite artists, composers and executives, but the event also features the most prestigious awards show in the industry.
The Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards takes place over four action-packed days that are filled with Latin music and culture. The conference program includes showcases, parties, social networking events and educational sessions. The highlights of the conference are the Billboard Bash and the Star Q&A. The Billboard Bash is a pre-awards show that features live performances by some of the best acts in the business, while the Star Q&A gives fans a chance to see a one-on-one interview with the stars conducted by Leila Cobo. Of course, the chance to rub shoulders with well over a thousand of the biggest names in the business is also a massive lure.
This years Latin extravaganza will feature performances by Jimmy Flavorr, Nelia, Pablo Capeda, Ponzona Musical, Los Primos De Durango, Los Diamantes, Julian Gomez y su Tamborazo Duranguense, Jorge Meza, Carmen Jara, Alejandro Radilla, Locoz por Juana and Jossie Cordoba. The artists booked to perform at the Billboard Bash are Black Guayaba, Diana Reyes, Juan and Montez de Durango.
At the end of the week, the event comes to a fitting completion with the holding of the annual Billboard Latin Music Awards. The award ceremony honors the biggest and brightest Latin stars and is almost the Latin equivalent of the Grammy Awards. From the moment the stars step out onto the bright red carpet, audiences are wowed and awed at being able to be so close to their favorite musicians. In addition to this, many of the artists perform during the course of the evening, so anyone lucky enough to be in attendance really gets to enjoy a feast for the eyes and ears.
This year the annual Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards will be taking place from the 7th to the 10th of April at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. This will be the nineteenth year that the awards have been running and it promises to be better than ever.
