We are pleased to announce that the city of Bogotá (Colombia) will host the 5th International Nightlife Congress and the 4th Golden Moon Awards on November 14th together with Colombia’s ExpoBar Fair. Last week in Ibiza, the President of the International Nightlife Association (INA), José Luis Benítez and the President of the Nightlife Association of Colombia (ASOBARES), Camilo Ospina agreed to collaborate. As you may know, the INA holds an annual international congress and awards ceremony and has decided to celebrate this year’s edition jointly with the 5th edition of the ExpoBar Fair. ExpoBar is Colombia’s most important nighttime entertainment event with more than 3.000 attendees including representatives of the industry, staff, authorities and sponsors.
 
In the aforementioned meeting between the two representatives, the entry of ASOBARES Colombia (Colombian Nightlife Association) into the International Nightlife Association was also agreed on, strengthening the international association.

On behalf of the International Nightlife Association, we would like to welcome ASOBARES Colombia as a new active member and thank you for your willingness and hospitality in allowing the INA to jointly celebrate our international events at its annual Fair.
 
The 5th International Nightlife Congress will deal with key issues such as safety, noise pollution, music tourism, quality and excellence, all with internationally renowned speakers, who are in turn guests of Expobar, the host of all events. The main subject of the International Congress will be the "Triple Excellence in Nightlife", a triple quality distinction granted by the INA to those venues & clubs that meet a series of requirements in terms of safety, acoustics and quality of service after a meticulous inspection. It should be noted that Bogotá, host capital of our next event, has issued the "Sello Seguro", a standard public certification issued by the City for venues that meet established requirements and will be up for debate in our International Congress.
 
During the evening of November 14th , the International Nightlife Association will release the list of the “World’s 100 Best Clubs 2018” followed by the official event closure of Expobar hosted by ASOBARES and tourism authorities of Bogotá.
