FILBo 2020 is a unique opportunity to promote your products, design, culture and business and to tell the Danish story.

The Nordic embassies with presence in Colombia have joined efforts to create a #ThinkNordic brand in one of the most interesting markets of the Western hemisphere. Not only is Colombia a growing economic hub, it is also on the forefront of exploring how culture and creative industries can be a driving force for sustainable development. 

The Nordic countries will be the guests of honor at FILBo 2020. This project aims to expand the Nordic brand in the following sectors:

  • Sustainability
  • Gastronomy
  • Danish design and architecture
  • Sustainable mobility 

Colombia will be able to experience the concept “#ThinkNordic, culture for a sustainable future”, being a unique opportunity to highlight the Nordic strengths for sustainable development through creativity, innovation and culture. 

What we offer:

  • 15-day exhibition at Corferias creating visibility and branding of your company for Colombians with high purchasing power.
  • Media/press coverage and your company logo will be printed on various publications. 
  • Events to promote the Danish products and sustainable solutions to attract even more potential clients to the fair.
  • Immediate brand recognition, whether you already operate in Colombia or want to enter the prosperous market.
  • B2B meetings and promotions can be arranged during the exhibition.

The Colombian market
Colombia is the second largest country in South America in terms of population with almost 50 million inhabitants. Colombia has a rapidly growing middleclass and a drastically improved security situation, which offers interesting business opportunities within many different areas. GDP is expected to grow by 3.7 % in 2020.

Danish technology, products and design are associated with high quality and excellence among Colombians, which is why the booming consumer market constitutes a huge potential for Danish companies. The creative industry is one of the most prioritized areas of the Colombian Government, who wants to learn from the Nordic countries and their experience. 

FILBo is one of the most important international book fairs in Latin America. Global as well as local companies always have an important presence at the fair. For the past 30 years, FILBo has gathered publishers from various countries and nearly 240 national authors. Every year 150-200 events take place during the fair; 13,000 books are sold, and more than 600,000 visitors participate. FILBo targets a broad audience and aims to strengthen relations between the academia, public and private sectors. The Nordic countries will be in the spotlight of both cultural and broader media coverage during the months leading up to the event.
