The Miami salsa congress, an initiative of Salsa Lovers, was first held in 2002. Usually it takes place somewhere end of July, beginning of August. This time of year Miami is the salsa hotspot of the U.S. What is different from most congresses is that this congress takes place during a period of 5 days instead of the more common 3 day period.
The mission of the first Miami salsa congress in 2002 was to bring salsa
lovers from al over the world to the warm and sunny Miami with the
perfect salsa climate. Due to its success it became a yaerly event.
