Colombia has become a favorable location for corporate events, conventions and conferences, as it is also one of the most interesting places for investment. This is due to the recent economical stability and the fast paced growth of certain sectors such as tourism. Furthermore, Colombia’s diversity gives a wide range of choices when it comes to traveling for business.
We have 5 big cities and 4 mid-sized cities where world conferences, events and seminars can comfortably be held. Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Barranquilla and Cartagena are some of the most chosen destinies due to their multiple facilities and touristic development.
A great example is the latest Summit of the Americas, which took place in Cartagena in 2012; a midpoint between Chile and Canada, Peru and Mexico, just to name a few. Its historical richness was an inspiring yet practical setting for such an event.
The best Facilities
Additionally, Colombia has spectacular sites for conventions and events; from restored palaces that date back to colonial times to modern architectural buildings, there is a wide range of venues to choose from. Multiple exhibition areas, theaters, boardrooms and convention centers, with capacities up to 7.500 people, are available to hold effective corporate events and meetings.
Hotel infrastructure is also very good in Colombia, especially in big cities. Not only you’ll find multinational hotel chains such as Sheraton, Holiday Inn or the Marriot but you will also enjoy excellent Colombian hotels such as Hoteles Estelar and bh (business hotels), especially designed for business people.
Moreover, there are boutique hotels in case you or your clients need special treatment. These five stars hotels offer a very welcoming and pleasant stay with several facilities such as meeting rooms, international food restaurants, fitness centers and spas to provide some leisure time whenever it is needed.
