Venue

Agora Bogotá Convention Centre 

The Agora Bogotá Convention Centre, located in Bogotá, Colombia, opened its doors in 2017 be a transforming axis of the city and become the epicentre of large conventions and events. It is strategically located 3 kms from the historic centre of Bogotá and 8 kms from El Dorado International Airport.  

History

Ágora is part of the innovation zone that links the Airport with the City Centre, based on the development of the axis on the Western Railway, a mobility corridor with associated residual spaces. These spaces create a large linear park that unites the north and south of the city on which nodes with different uses are developed, depending on their nature and power. 

Design

Agora has been inspired by principles of transparency and luminosity and provides spaces that are integrated with the spectacular mountains that surround Bogotá.  

In October 2018 Ágora Bogotá – International Convention Centre became the winner of the Fernando Martínez Sanabria Award for Best Architectural Project and the Real Estate Excellence Award granted by the International Federation of Real Estate Professions FIABCI, cataloguing it as one of the most modern and country innovators.
