From a media release:
Latin Alternative Music Conference

- Registration Now Open!

Following the success of last June's conference in its first-ever virtual form, and knowing that things are still up in the air as far as in-person events, we are once again hosting the conference digitally. This year, the LAMC will take place online the week of Cinco de Mayo (May 4-7th).
The LAMC was one of the first music conferences to go digital, and the first one in the Latin space, and many feel that we helped set a standard for what these sorts of events should aspire to be. We had an outstanding turnout last year for our first fully digital experience, and we hope you will join us once again for four days of panels, workshops, showcases and networking.
As many in our industry continue to face financial challenges, registration will be free again this year thanks to the wonderful support of our sponsors and supporters.
In addition to our schedule of panels, workshops and showcases, the LAMC is proud to announce the return of the Wonder Women of Latin Music recognitions, presented by Amazon Music, celebrating women making a difference in our industry.
"Amazon Music LAT!N was launched to connect us through music and to shine a light on the many genres and artists that make Latin Music a creative and driving force," says Rocío Guerrero, Global Head of Latin Music for Amazon Music. "As part of that mission, we are thrilled to join LAMC again this year in presenting the Wonder Women of Latin Music awards to recognize the women who are spearheading that growth and creativity, as well as paving the way for more women in the industry."
As we finally see some light with vaccines being administered, the world needs music now more than ever and the entertainment industry must continue to join together as we face our new challenges.
Jose Tillan and Pop Garage (producer of Latin GRAMMYs, MTV Music Awards, etc.) has come back on board once again to work with our team to undertake this week-long adventure. We will be sharing more info shortly.
We hope you can join us. No travel, hotel plans or budgets needed.
