With less than a month to go before Bogotá welcomes the World Travel Awards Latin America Gala Ceremony 2015, Bogotá Turismo has unveiled the latest details of the event. 

The red-carpet ceremony will take place on October 10th, centred on two iconic locations in the city.

Bogotá Turismo Director Tatiana Piñeros Laverde said: “We are going to have a night to remember.

“Winners at the World Travel Awards will be treated to a magical show, against scenery filled with fantasy and spectacle.”
