Medellín’s four-year-old Plaza Mayor is Colombia’s most modern convention and conference complex, situated in the city’s administrative and cultural epicenter and readily accessible from the main hotel and tourist hubs.

In the wake of the boom sparked by this facility’s construction, Medellín is emerging as a new business event destination. The city now can play host to high-profile gatherings like the recent Thirty-eighth General Assembly of the Organization of American States.
