Billboard Latin Music Awards

April
Since 1989, Billboard magazine has sponsored the week-long Billboard Latin Music Conference in which some 1,000 music executives, musicians, managers, composers, agents, media, and other industry insiders gather for programs, showcases, parties, and networking events.
At the end of the week, the conference presents the Billboard Latin Music Awards in over 50 categories. The awards are chosen based on record sales, radio airplay data, and position on the weekly Billboard music charts. In addition to those awards for musical performance, the conference also bestows the Spirit of Hope Award, for an artist's humanitarian work during the year, and the Lifetime Achievement Award. Since 1999, the awards ceremony has been broadcast on the Telemundo television network.
