Technopolis (Spanish Tecnópolis) is a science, technology, industry and art mega exhibition, based in Argentina and the largest in Latin America. Located in Villa Martelli, in the Vicente Lopez division, Tecnopolis was inaugurated on July 14, 2011, by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Initially, Technopolis was scheduled to be held in Buenos Aires after the Argentina Bicentennial celebrations. The mega exhibition was planned to be the end of the Bicentennial celebrations organized by the national government in 2010, and inaugurated on November 19, 2010 in Buenos Aires for the "Day of Sovereignty", the anniversary of the Battle of Vuelta de Obligado, in the area of parks of the Avenida Figueroa Alcorta. However, in October 2010, the Chief of Government of Buenos Aires, Mauricio Macri, denied authorization in such plots as "the transport system would collapse in the city." Thus, the national government decided to relocate the mega exhibition in an area of fifty hectares in the Province of Buenos Aires, located in Villa Martelli, Vicente López, at the former barracks of Army Battalion 601.
