Wings Over the Rockies (Wings) is proud to release its plans for its new nation entertainment and education campus, Exploration of Flight. Designed to highlight the future of aviation and space centers, Exploration of Flight is an impressive 15-acre campus that will act as the sister facility to Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver’s Lowry neighborhood. Exploration of Flight will be located on the south side of Centennial Airport in Englewood, Colorado.

“This facility will be unique to the nation,” explained Wings Over the Rockies President & CEO, John Barry. “Our Air & Space Museum in Lowry will concentrate on the past while the Exploration of Flight Campus at Centennial Airport will focus on the present and future. One organization, two locations."

The aerospace-focused Colorado nonprofit has spent more than a decade in the planning and fundraising portion of the project but is expecting phase one to be complete in summer 2018. The gallery will feature interactive exhibits and activities designed to enthrall and educate visitors about aviation. With world-class shows, a thrilling simulator, tours of Centennial Airport, live takeoffs and landings, the Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery will enable guests to experience flight like never before.

From August 16-18 Denver, Colorado will be filled with creative, event-centered minds from all over the world. The International Live Events Association (ILEA)'s 2018 conference, ILEA Live, is offering live events professionals and event business owners an exclusive opportunity to focus on business strategies, creative output, inspiration and trends.

 

The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa has announced its official sale to Crescent Real Estate LLC (Crescent) of Fort Worth, Texas. Together with the hotel’s newly appointed luxury management team, HEI Hotels & Resorts, Crescent will drive what will be a new era for the iconic property.
