Julian Holguin, President of Billboard, said: “We are so thrilled to be back in-person for the first Billboard Music Awards in two years. We couldn’t think of a better time to launch Billboard MusicCon, two robust days of world class programming with one-of-kind access to artists, creators, and industry leaders discussing and celebrating the ever-evolving music industry. We felt the timing was right and these discussions are the perfect note to kick off such a special weekend in music.”
