Set against the backdrop of Longs Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado’s newest destination event venue The Pavilion at The Stanley Hotel announced the opening of their $10 million-dollar building. The Pavilion offers a modern retreat atmosphere for exclusive corporate and wedding clientele.

“We designed the building with the needs of our most demanding customers in mind, with custom finishes, dedicated high-speed broadband, beautifully appointed outdoor spaces, plentiful natural light, and complete privacy,” says John Cullen, owner of The Stanley Hotel. “As with everything we offer at The Stanley, no detail is overlooked.”

The Pavilion features multiple flexible event spaces, with spectacular views of the snow-capped Rockies and a private waterfall and pond. In addition, the 5.5-ton custom glass wall opens over the pond and an available floating platform creates a stunning indoor / outdoor event space that can accommodate up to 300 seated guests.

Denver’s longest-serving caterer, Occasions Catering exclusively provides food and beverage service at The Pavilion. Executive Chef Chris Meier tailors his Colorado-centric menus to the new venue, featuring dishes like native fish and game with contemporary flavors.

“We are thrilled to showcase our unique brand of catering to clients from throughout the metro area, and we know that The Pavilion at The Stanley will draw signature events from around the world to Estes Park,” said Jeremy Bronson, president of Occasions Catering. “The Pavilion is perfect for clients seeking an iconic Rocky Mountain location with a twist of incomparable modern amenities and first-class service.”

As if it couldn’t get better, The Pavilion includes two immaculately detailed event rooms with classic, elegant architecture: The Aspen and The Willow. Both spaces include large outdoor balconies and overlook the private pond and stunning mountains Colorado is known for.

IMEX Group and Skift have published a new mini trend report titled The Rise of Midsize Cities in the Meetings Industry. The report concludes that the future of the meetings and events industry will be driven by midsize cities (defined as less than one million citizens) and secondary markets, especially in North America and Europe.
