In June 2018 Camilo, Rolly and I made a trip to Cartagena and were amazed by the city.
A near completely restored 500 year old colonial walled city, next to a Miami-esque modern tourist town.
Right at the heart of it all is the beautiful Convention Centre, situated on the water of the port, within walking distance of the ramparts of the old city.
The Centro de Convenciones Cartagena de Indias looks more like an art gallery than a convention centre.
A wide boulevard leads to the entrance of a 40 year old recently renovated piece of beautiful 20th century soft brutalist architecture.
Inside there are beautiful open common spaces filled with Colombian modernist art and sculpture.
It was not a hard decision for the boys and I to make to take DevelopingEM to this beautiful centre.
The skill, professionalism and patience of the Convention Centre team, has made us extremely happy with the choice and we just know the centre will be a major factor in the success of DevelopingEM 2020 Colombia.
We will be using the centre for all our functions this year and you can even check out the areas virtually on the centre website.
- Welcome Reception at the Explanada de San Francisco
- Gala Dinner on the Terrazas del Claustro de las Animas
The interactive centre website also has a virtual tour option so you can walk through the whole beautiful venue.
It is truly a stunning venue and we feel very honoured to be working with the centre team to bring you DevelopingEM 2020 Colombia.
Come and join us in beautiful Cartagena at the incomparable Centro de Convenciones.
