Corferias is massive and puts on trade fairs, exposition, exhibitions and that kind of thing; the best thing on recently was ‘Bodies’ or ‘Bodyworlds‘ as it was when I saw it on London…

Not all the expos are relevant to your average traveller but it’s worth checking here to see what’s on. Cool stuff coming up:

GRAN FIESTA NACIONAL: BICENTENARIO -15th – 25th of July – Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the independence of Colombia – more details here
FERIA DE LAS COLONIAS – 15th – 25th of July – Tour the whole of Colombia in one day
FERIA INTERNACIONAL DEL LIBRO (International book fair) – 11th – 23rd of August – more details here
