When real estate developer-turned-tech entrepreneur Manny Medina launched the eMerge Americas conference in 2014, the aim was to establish Miami as the tech hub of Latin America.

Five years later, eMerge is well on its way. This year, the conference has attracted leaders from across the hemisphere and beyond, including government officials from Chile and Denmark; SAP CEO Bill McDermott; and executives from SoftBank, Revolution, Amazon, Ultimate Software, Google and EY (formerly Ernst & Young).

Thousands of attendees — last year 15,000 — will turn out to hear sessions about women entrepreneurs, artificial intelligence, genomics and education, and check out startups vying for honors in eMerge’s Shark Tank-style pitch competition.

Once again, CNBC and Telemundo will broadcast live throughout the show, slated for April 29-30 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

This year, eMerge has a new face driving the future. The new CEO is Felice Gorordo, hired last year to replace Xavier Gonzalez, who joined Medina as a vice president at data security group Cyxtera. Melissa Medina was named president.
