BOmm is part of the Chamber´s strategy, which for 13 years has been committed to the cultural and creative industries for their economic contribution to the City – Region.

This strategy provides support to entrepreneurs and business owners of these sectors from three forefronts: Consulting for business strengthening, improvement of the competitive environment through cluster initiatives and circulation and business platforms as the one in ARTBO Fair, BAM, BOmm and BFW. In this context today we have a Music Cluster Initiative aimed at appointing Bogota as UNESCO´s Music City and particularly at increasing this sector´s competitiveness in the City-Region.
