The Bogota International Convention Center is an initiative that seeks to position Bogota as one of the top five destinations for conventions, events and conferences in Latin America. In August 2011, the project was awarded to Colombian architect Daniel Bermudez and Spanish architect Juan Herreros, who formed a consortium for the competition.

"This project confirms the strategic vision of the Bogota Chamber of Commerce as an allied institution for regional prosperity, promoting projects that help to improve the quality of life and business climate and to facilitate business formalization and generation of quality employment in the city and the region," said Consuelo Caldas, President of the CCB.

An international architectural competition focused on a scheme that would promote the new Convention Center as part of an integrated exhibition, arts, cultural and entertainment district. The ideas of overall connectivity in urban design, sense of the building's identity, street life, urban regeneration, flexibility, and public access were of prime importance.
