Agencies, media companies, startups, and enterprises are drawn to the event as they seek to harness (or be) the next big thing.

In the video, he and Yankee go head-to-head in a virtual reality dance battle game. The track is Aoki’s first Spanish-language track and has inspired an international movement in the Zumba community.
“It’s been crazy seeing all these dance and fitness videos being posted on Instagram to ‘Azukita,'” Aoki previously told PEOPLE CHICA. “From Zumba instructors and students all over the world, fitness aficionados, social media influencers, and our fans; the response has been nothing short of overwhelming proving that Latin influence is really universal.”
