Spend three inspiring days in the cultural and cosmopolitan city of Mexico City.
SIMBig 2023 will take place in Mexico City, Mexico. Mexico City is located in the Valley of Mexico, on the central plateau. Tenochtitlan, originally built by the Aztecs in 1325 on an island in Lake Texcoco, was almost completely destroyed in the Tenochtitlan Asedio of 1521. It was redistributed and rebuilt to meet contemporary Spanish urban standards. The municipal government of Mexico City was established in 1524; at that time it was known as Mexico Tenochtitlan; however, it was officially recognised as Mexico City in 1585. Since then it has been the centre of Spanish-speaking politics, administration and finance. The Distrito Federal was established in 1824 after independence from Spain and remained as such until 2016. As a cultural destination, it is unparalleled in North America. With the sole exception of London, it has more museums than any other city in the world. The city's population thrives on delicious food and an exquisite culture that is a synthesis of many influences from outside the city's borders, not just the cultures that already existed.
