Premios Billboard Gifting Suite

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Wilmer Valderrama & Emilio Estefan

Coral Gables, FL – April 23-25, 2013 – Last week was full of more Latin flavor than usual in Miami for the 2013 Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards. Each day, the University of Miami‘s BankUnited Center held the official Backstage Suites & Gifting Lounge presented by Wella Professionals Color Charm. The luxury lounge was a place for musicians, talent managers, and industry executives to relax, mingle with each other, and get taken care of thanks to all the cool products and sponsors. Miami Sound Machine’s own Emilio Estefan stopped by, along with Wilmer Valderrama, Daisy Fuentes, Jon Secada, and tons of other Latin music sensations. During rehearsals for the show, performers, presenters, nominees, and other VIPs were treated to a Wella Professionals Color Charm braid and blow out station with celebrity stylist Andy LeCompte, Dockers khaki pants for the guys, Sound Machine headphones from Monster (a partnership headed by Emilio Estefan naturally), Uno de 50 signature jewelry, and lots more.

Premios Billboard After Party

Monday, April 29th, 2013


Miami, FL – April 25, 2013 – After an exciting night in the Gables for the 2013 Billboard Latin Music Awards, everyone headed to Wynwood for the after party. Big time musicians like Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, model Vida Guerra and more notable celebrities joined in on the red carpet festivities in the artsy neighborhood. The party took over a warehouse on NW 25 Street and even blocked off some of the street. The space was filled with local art, bites, and drinks, and had DJ Ruen spinning some saucy beats while a group of Samba dancers gave a hot performance. Everyone got their Latin groove on well into the night for a memorable end to the annual event.
