BOGOTÁ, Colombia (CelebrityAccess) — Henry Cardenas, the American businessman, president and executive director of Cardenas Marketing Network (CMN), and now director of Cardenas Entertainment and Marketing Group (CEMG), has acquired the under-construction Arena Bogotá.
The arena, which is currently under construction on Calle 80, will host live music performances, business conventions, and sporting events when it opens in the second half of 2020.
When completed, the arena will boast a capacity of 24,000, purpose-designed acoustics and structural elements capable of supporting complex modern productions.
The arena also features more than 40,000 feet of backstage storage, production and artist amenities, with a loading dock that can accommodate up to 10 trucks simultaneously during load-in/load-out.
Additionally, due to its location, Arena Bogotá will not be constrained by the city’s early curfews and customers will be able to buy and consume alcoholic beverages within the premises.
“I am very proud to be able to become the entertainment ambassador in my native country, and to be able to welcome everyone to Arena Bogotá, which will be the home to all Colombians, businessmen and promoters, the artists / live music events, business conventions, and sports that our country deserves,” Cardenas said.
“For the first year of operations we plan to perform between 130 and 140 shows, which means about three events per week, which will include family events, corporate, live music, sports (e.g. motocross, Olympic sports, indoor soccer, boxing, volleyball, tennis, basketball, etc.), eGaming, parades, and equine events, among others,” Cardenas added.
