The conference, which takes place April 21-24 at the JW Marriot Marquis in Miami, will feature the top executives and artists in the industry—including Enrique Iglesias, Laura Pausini, Carlos Vives and Gloria Trevi--over three days of panels and showcases.
The conference culminates with the Billboard Latin Music Awards, which will air live April 24 on the Telemundo Network.
The 25th anniversary concert was organized specifically to celebrate the conference’s silver anniversary. It will be hosted by Telemundo personalities Jorge Bernal and Kimberly Dos Ramos.
“A 25th anniversary is not something that happens every day, so we really made an effort to bring the very best artists we could,” says Leila Cobo, executive director for Latin content and programming at Billboard. “The fact that Fonsi and Bisbal were both in Miami, that they both are in the midst of releasing new albums and that they are friends just made this occasion even more special. This is truly a one-of-a-kind event.”
Bisbal last week released his new album, Tu y Yo, which topped Spain’s sales charts and immediately went double platinum, also reaching No. 1 in six other countries. Fonsi will release his new studio album, 8, later this spring. His new single, “Corazón en la maleta,” is No. 8 this week on Billboard’s Latin Pop Airplay chart.
