Bogotá 2014

The D&E board agreed that Bogotá proves to be the ideal host for our 9th International Conference on Design & Emotion in 2014. We are confident that Bogota/Colombia will bring us a lively and memorable 9th conference that will attract and inspire our community.

Emerging Bogotá

Unlike popular opinion, Colombia and Bogota as its capital city are thriving, considered to be emerging places-to-be, fed by the Colombians' optimism and drive for improvement.

The Design & Emotion Society considers these characteristics to be a perfect background for our conference in which we always try to find a particular combination of excitement, meaning, dialogue and having a unique experience.

We feel our community will also fall in love with Bogotá, just as we have, and we are looking forward to this exciting and new adventure.

D&E goes Colombia!

Colombia, design and social change

Over the last decade, Colombia has been a touchstone of what good design and enlightened politics can do for cities. If Barcelona was the urban exemplar of the 1990s, urbanists these days are more likely to mention Colombia's capital, Bogotá, and its second city, Medellín. In both cities, a succession of dynamic mayors has used transport infrastructure and new public buildings as tools of social change. [Source: The Guardian.co.uk]
