Brief Description of City

Bogotá ,Distrito Capital, abbreviated Bogotá, D.C. (during the time of Spanish rule, and also from 1991 to 2000, called Santa Fé de Bogotá) is the capital and largest city of Colombia administered as the Capital District, although often thought of as part of Cundinamarca

The city is home to senior agencies of the executive branch (Office of the President), the legislative branch (Congress of Colombia) and the judicial branch (Supreme Court of Justice, Constitutional Court, Council of State and the Superior Council of Judicature). Bogotá stands out for its economic strength and associated financial maturity, its attractiveness to global companies and the quality of human capital; it is the largest business platform of Colombia where most high-impact ventures occur.[10][11] The capital hosts the main market of Colombia and the Andean natural region, and the leading destination for new projects of foreign direct investment coming into Latin America and Colombia.[12] It has the highest nominal GDP in the country, contributing most to the national total (24.7%), and it is the seventh-largest city by size of GDP in Latin America (about USD 159,850 million) (Source: Wikipedia)

Budget Planning

We are expecting to receive at least 800 + visitors in FUDCon

We are planning to have 2 fixed roms for talks + a FUDCon Area with some booths to receive the people and advertise Fedora.

Since we don't have to spend money on the event organization, we can focus on bringing MORE people from different countries. This way, we can have a great FUDCon experience by sharing knowledge and culture with folks from different parts of LATAM.
