Spotify hosts high-priced executive retreat in Cancun

Spotify just hosted a pricey offsite meeting in Cancun, Quintana Roo, with dozens or more executives and employees participating.

Of course, Cancun isn’t usually associated with getting work done — unless that work involves repeatedly lifting rum cocktails.  But this offsite is reportedly focused on assembling content groups from various global offices.  Beyond that, we’re not sure of the exact business purpose.

One Spotify executive referred to this as a ‘Spotify Music Conference’.  Another source noted that the ‘entire content org’ at Spotify is attending the getaway.  Sounds like a lot of people.

There seems to be a strong Latin emphasis among the performers, which makes sense given the location.  But at this stage, this looks like a broader global content and curator meet-up.

According to one source, most of the action took place at the Ritz Carlton Cancun, which is surrounded on all sides by white-sand beaches and light blue waters.

According to Spotify’s head of content for Benelux Wilbert Mutsaers, reggaeton superstar Nicky Jam was among the performing slate.
