Why Bogota won the ICCA Best PR Award 2015


A beautiful story in itself: The judges unanimously chose the first Latin American winner of the Best PR Award, which was announced at the 2015 ICCA Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina: The Greater Bogota Convention Bureau.

Bogota’s “People: The Power of Hope” PR campaign, supporting their bid for the One Young World Summit, successfully activated the local community to tell the story of Colombia’s transformation with Latin American spirit and passion.

At the recent ibtm world tradeshow in Barcelona, James Latham of Best PR Award sponsor International Meetings Review interviewed Sandra Garcia of the Greater Bogota Convention Bureau about their campaign:
