The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday announced its inaugural Latin Power Event, set to take place Nov. 8 at Soho Beach House in Miami.
The afternoon event will honor Latin executives, talent and makers who have been leaders across film, television and music. Panelists and honorees include four trailblazers who are being recognized for their contributions in the following areas: America Ferrera, for advocacy and representation; Cris Abrego, chairman of Banijay America Group, president and CEO of Endemol Shine Holdings and co-founder and CEO Hypenate Media Group, for executive leadership; Danny Trejo, for entrepreneurship and philanthropy; and Emilio and Gloria Estefan, for lifetime achievement in the arts.
In a joint statement, THR co-editors-in-chief Nekesa Moody and Maer Roshan said: “We couldn’t be more excited to host our first ever Latin Power event in Miami, bringing together world-class talent and business leadership. Our shared goal is to create a platform to hear inspiring stories, celebrate leadership and shine a light on the undeniable momentum being created by Latin’s Power Players. We are also proud to have a dedicated issue that recognizes these influential leaders in the Latin community.”
The event coincides with THR’s Latin Power issue, which takes a fresh, business-forward look at the Latin executives, talent and makers having an impact on global audiences while driving business forward. The issue’s power list and accompanying features will tell a story, not of language or country of origin, but about the content that drives billions in revenue.
