The Billboard Latin Music Conference
 
Celebrating Crossroads
As we enter our 27th year at the vanguard of Latin music sounds and trends, we celebrate the crossroads of Latin music. Never before has music, across the board, been so intrinsically connected with other disciplines: Arts, culture, sports, advertising, marketing, television, fashion, data, technology, film, the mainstream itself.
 
In 2016, we celebrate convergence and who it has shaped the Latin music industry in the past year.
