Long Description:
Plaza Mayor is a modern convention and exhibition center for the city of Medellin. Wikipedia tells us:

In 2001 the Municipality of Medellín, the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia, the Chamber of Commerce of Medellín for Antioquia, and the IDEA agreed to provide financial and physical resources for the construction of the convention center, taking the first step towards the consolidation of Plaza Mayor Medellin. It was agreed that the objective of the project was to promote the realization of modern business and commercial activities, creating spaces for holding events and conventions with national and international actions to complement the competitiveness and internationalization of Medellin and foster a culture of citizenship.
