After taking an election year break, Colorado Brewers Guild brought back Hop the Vote to encourage Colorado legislators to set aside their differences, brew craft beer, and campaign for their creations at Denver’s Great American Beer Festival held on Oct. 5-7. To prepare their brew, the Colorado House of Representatives team met at 4 Noses Brewing Co. in Broomfield on Aug. 24, and the Colorado Senate team gathered at Renegade Brewing in Denver on Aug. 25. 

Colorado Brewers Guild introduced the Hop the Vote initiative in 2014 to highlight the importance of beer in Colorado’s economy, as well as the relationship between lawmakers and Colorado craft brewers. “The 300-plus breweries account for $1.7 billion, which directly impacts the state economy, and that means it is important to keep our legislators informed on what is going on with craft brewers,” says Steve Kurowski, operations director for the nonprofit trade association.   

The Meetings Industry Council (MIC) of Colorado hosted a record 1,210 registered attendees for its 18th annual conference and trade show on March 13-14 at the Colorado Convention Center. MIC of Colorado is a coalition of 13 professional organizations related to the meetings and events industry.

 

Approximately 480 representatives of the meetings and events industry gathered on March 12 at Denver Place in downtown Denver to celebrate the 12th annual Colorado Meetings + Events Best of 2018 readers’ choice awards and Hall of Fame induction. The event served as the kickoff for Colorado Meetings Week in tandem with the MIC of Colorado Educational Conference and Trade Show. Thank you to our event sponsors and partners!
