For the past five years, Destination Colorado has been switching up its Customer Appreciation Event from golf to experiential. This year, partner suppliers helped host planners for a private dinner reception at Red Rocks Amphitheatre followed by a 1964 Beatles tribute band performance. Nostalgic costume items, a photo booth and a roped-off seating section at Red Rocks were part of the fun.

Recent Denver events caught our attention as they provide fun and tasty ways to bring local experiences to group gatherings, offering alternatives to popular wine, beer and spirit tastings.

The land that originally held a Colorado Springs dairy farm and gambling casino in the late 1800s was transformed into The Broadmoor, one of Colorado’s most iconic luxury resorts, with the vision and guidance of founder Spencer Penrose. The resort’s doors opened to the world on June 29, 1918, and the rest is history. 

 

One of the best and simplest ways to get a real taste of local without going to a bunch of work and expense is scheduling a meeting in tandem with a destination’s event calendar.
