We’re excited to announce that Devcon VI will be held in Bogotá, Colombia's capital and largest city.
Our venue is the Agora Bogotá Convention Center; a newly constructed and state of the art venue that we hope will be, by far, the most suitable venue to ever host Devcon.
Our search for a fitting location for Devcon VI began prior to Devcon V in 2019. After exploring venues in over ten cities across the world, and meticulously evaluating each against an extensive set of criteria, the clear winner was Bogotá, Colombia.
See our City Guide for an in-depth explanation on why Bogotá.
Bogotá is safer today than at any point in the last 50 years in terms of crime rates.
