Miami, FL (Hollywood Today) 2/21/13 - The conference will be held the week of the 22 – 25 of April. It is coming back as prestigious as ever, covering events ranging from conferences to the traditional Billboard Bash. This event is definitely the largest and most popular Latin music event in the world, with appearances from high ranking executives in the business to world renown celebrities in the likes of Pitbull (Cuba) and Don Omar (Puerto Rico) to up and comers like Lorena Ares (Spain). This event touts artists from every genre as well as any age the opportunity to work together and create the music we crave for in the future. Helping make all this possible is the Executive Director of content and programing for the Latin Billboards, Leila Cobo, a very talented woman native of Cali, Colombia. Every year she takes it upon herself making this experience better than the last. Recently we had the pleasure of interviewing her and she told Hollywood Today “I am very excited this year with the new dynamic being incorporated to the conference, one on one sessions where people can reach out to specific experts in the field, making this a much better and personalized experience. So next week is all about latin music and it is going to be here in Miami.”
Hollywood Today will be covering the whole event, so please watch out for further interviews and news.
