Unión Nacional de Asociaciones Ganaderas Colombianas – Unaga
The National Union of Colombian Livestock Associations UNAGA was born in November 1954, it was constituted in its beginnings by the Associations of Breeders of the Holstein, Santa Gertrudis, Norman, Cebu and Blanco Orejinegro Breeds.
The first mission decided by the directors was the participation in the National Exhibition that was to be held the year after its establishment, on the grounds of the Fairs and Exhibitions Corporation. From then in 1955 until 1967 UNAGA assumed the organization of the exhibitions of cattle that were made in the city of Bogotá. UNAGA took a great step to make its alliance with CORFERIAS, as a result of this alliance was born AGROEXPO, in which it was agreed that this event would be held every two years and alternated with the Industrial Exhibition Fair.
The Bogota International Center for Business and Exhibitions-Corferias is a private organization for the promotion of industrial, social, cultural and commercial development in the Andean region, Central America and the Caribbean. Its principal shareholder is the Bogota Chamber of Commerce, which represents the interests of the corporate sector and of society in general.
With over 60 years of experience, Corferias seeks to widen cooperation between Colombia and the world community through the organization of fairs, exhibitions, events and conventions, generating important contacts between visitors and exhibitors in facilities operated under international standards. Equally, it promotes and organizes Colombia´s participation in fairs and exhibitions abroad, and participates as a partner in companies that have the same objective of fostering the country´s industrial and commercial development.
Its fair agenda covers the clusters of highest potential in the region, to strengthen competitiveness. As such, in the past two years Corferias has increased from 25 to 38 the number of events and in 2010 expects to organize 50 annual fairs and surpass the actual statistics: 9000 exhibitors and 1,514,000 national and international visitors.
