Registration Now OPEN!

Colombia

Colombia may be Latin America’s best revival story as it makes a successful push to become the region’s next top boating destination!

Join the NMMA, ANC and ProColombia on a week-long fact finding mission to learn firsthand about this emerging boating market. During this six day trip, we’ll explore potential business opportunities and growth areas for our industry, gather information on new projects and opportunities while networking with industry contacts and potential customers throughout.

The past 10 years have brought extraordinary change to the country in terms of economic development and improvements in the national safety and security situation. The political stability, growing middle class, and improved security have created an economic boom in Colombia.

Colombia is the only country in South America with two coasts: the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea — and home to many navigable lakes and rivers, many of which are already used for boating and watersport activities. The Colombian Ministry of Tourism and the National Fund for Tourism have developed a National Plan of Nautical Tourism covering over 3,800 kilometers of shoreline on the country’s Caribbean and Pacific coasts and offshore islands. There are currently more than 21 developed projects including marinas, watersports facilities and docks. Much more development in this sector is projected, including small marinas on the offshore islands of Providencia and San Andres, as well as new and expanded marinas in the historic coastal city of Cartagena.

This group fact finding mission will be limited to 15 participating NMMA member companies!
