Over the past decade, Colombia has significantly boosted tourism while improving public safety. This capital city, a sprawling metropolis of 8 million inhabitants, is a modern cosmopolitan hub.

Among Bogotá's many meetings-friendly properties is the 303-room Casa Dann Carlton, in the northern part of the city, with 14 meeting rooms and a ballroom that can accommodate up to 800 people.

In the nearby neighborhood of Santa Barbara, the AR Convention Cen­ter, which opened in late 2008, offers eight meeting halls, with capacities ranging from 60 to 420. The 251-room Radisson Royal Bogota, connected via footbridge, features nine meeting rooms of its own.
