Latin Life Denver is pleased to be attending for the fourth year in a row this incredible event that brings together so many creative and fun loving people that help shape the direction and growth of Latin Life Denver Media
The event kicked off on Monday, April 3rd, with a variety of over 20 workshops covering everything from Latina empowerment to town halls discussing the practical and challenging implications of the recent political climate, recent demographic trends, the latest on what some call Total Market Evolved and the evolution of U.S. Hispanic and multicultural social and digital strategies.
Lunch featured NASA’s own Evelyn Miralles who talked about how few people in the world have the foresight about how virtual reality and augmented reality are going to disrupt the way we learn, shop, create content and engage people with marketing communications.. In her multimedia keynote, Miralles gave us a rare, inside scoop at the cutting-edge worlds of virtual reality and augmented reality.
The evening featured a spectacular fashion show before everyone hopped on buses to the Perez Art Museum Miami in South Beach for a private live concert by Juanes and the advance screening of his new Visual Album “Mis Planes Son Amarte”. Juanes, is a rock musician from Medellín, Colombia.
His politically-minded solo debut Fijate Bien (Take a good look) (2000) after Ekhymosis disbanded, earned him three Latin Grammys. The follow-up, Un Día Normal (A Normal Day) was a platinum mega-hit in Latin America and dominated that year’s Latin Grammys, where he was nominated for and won five awards including Song of the Year and Album of the Year.
In the 2005 Latin Grammys, Juanes won three additional awards to his nine previous Grammy awards. He took the award for Best Rock Song for Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor (I’m Worthless Without Your Love), Best Rock Solo Album for Mi Sangre (My Blood) and Best Music Video for Volverte a Ver (To see you again).
