Seville has been confirmed as host of the 26th annual MTV EMAs.
The event will take place at FIBES, Conference & Exhibition Centre of Seville, Spain, and broadcast live on MTV in nearly 180 countries on Sunday, November 3.
“We are thrilled to land in Seville for the 2019 MTV EMAs. It’s a vibrant city with an incredible music culture that will be the perfect backdrop for this epic night of music,” said Bruce Gillmer, EVP, Viacom’s global head of music and co-band lead of MTV International.
Raffaele Annecchino, president & MD of Viacom International Media Networks Southern & Western Europe, Middle East and Africa, commented “We’re tremendously excited to be hosting the MTV EMA in Spain for the fourth time and to be working in partnership with Seville. It is the first Creative City of Music to be recognised by UNESCO and has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
"The city is a highly recognised center of creativity and musical activity, a vibrant environment that is the result of a long music tradition and influence on a global scale. In short, Seville is the perfect cultural hotspot to host the MTV EMA event.”
Following in the footsteps of Bilbao in 2018, it will mark the second successive year that the EMAs will be held in Spain.
D. Juan Espadas, Mayor of Seville. “The decision to bring the MTV EMA to Seville confirms the great momentum this city experiences in terms of international projection. This is thanks to our culture, heritage and logistic capabilities to organise A-list congresses and events, which help us to showcase our city to attract investments and put Seville on the map.”
