The event will be open to all businesses in Southwest Colorado and anyone interested in destination marketing and the Colorado tourism industry. Topics will range from digital marketing and social media for businesses to sustainable tourism and crisis communication.

The Durango area is Southwest Colorado's premier four-season destination with more than 600,000 annual visitors. Registration costs $75, which includes two full days of networking events and educational sessions, a welcome reception with drinks and appetizers, and breakfast, a hot lunch buffet and a cookie/coffee bar served daily.

The Broadmoor is welcoming a new 125,000-square-foot Exhibition Hall in spring 2020, an addition to the existing Broadmoor Hall, International Center and Colorado Hall to form “The Broadmoor Event Center.”  

The Broadmoor will be the only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond awarded hotel in the country to operate a large on-site exhibition space. 

 

The Broadmoor is expanding its meetings and events capabilities with its new exhibition hall and Mountain Clubhouse spaces. The property is expanding to better accommodate trade shows and other larger meetings and events, which will be best suited in the new exhibition hall. The Mountain Clubhouse is meant to offer a Colorado-inspired event space for small to medium groups.

 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
