The event production and destination management company that has served Colorado since 1969 has rebranded itself as Imprint Group.

“We wanted a name that better communicated what we do and who we are,” says Nicole Marsh, CMP, DMCP and partner of Imprint Group. “Our company is special. We have a diverse team with varied skills and infectious personalities. We make the client’s needs and goals our top priority and customize our work to envision and execute events that have their own identity. The client, the venue, the theme, the entertainment, the décor, the food, everything about a given event should come together to create a distinct experience that you haven’t had before – like its own DNA.”

Imprint Group will retain its location in Colorado serving Denver, and now has a location in Florida serving Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa. Imprint is the preferred partner of the DMC Network in both locations.

Imprint Group will continue to offer the same standard of services as before, including branding and design, destination management, live music and entertainment, production services, teambuilding, and tours and attractions.

AXS Group was the result of a merger nearly four years ago between two longstanding companies in the event industry: The Arrangers, Colorado’s first DMC opened in 1969; and Starkey Productions, an entertainment and production company founded in 2000.

Honeycomb Strategies, based in the Colorado mountain town of Crested Butte and with a second location in Portland, Oregon, has been certified as a B Corporation. The women-owned sustainability consulting firm is helping the global event industry create sustainable management systems and reduce its footprint. 

B Corps are for-profit companies that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and use their profits and growth to positively impact stakeholders and the planet.

 

With meetings returning to normal as the COVID-19 pandemic levels out, outdoor mountain pursuits are finding more time on meeting agendas. Taking events outdoors not only boosts attendees’ comfort level as they ease back into in-person meetings, time spent in nature is proven to improve brain health and stimulate creative thinking as well.

We’ll be looking at this topic in-depth in the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Mountain Meetings. Consider this as an introduction to some of the possibilities.  

 

Stepping outside of meeting rooms and experiencing a destination is often the difference between a successful gathering and one that is less than memorable. A smart way to accomplish this is scheduling time to check out local breweries, wineries and food halls, where there tends to be many choices to accommodate various tastes and a range of price points. Here is the latest food and beverage news of interest to groups from around Colorado.
