    POSTED January 6, 2015
ACCESS Destination Services will now be represented in Colorado with the addition of Heidi Brown and Danielle Mason Phippen, owners of the Destination Management Company Workshop. Based in Denver, this company will be known as ACCESS Colorado in the ACCESS brand.
"We are excited to have Heidi and Danielle join the ACCESS team,” said Chris Lee, CEO of ACCESS Destination Services. “They are charismatic leaders, known for their commitment to service and creating unique experiences for clients. 
Together Mason Phippen and Brown have 30 years of experience in the industry and consistently focus on creating distinctive events for their customers.
"ACCESS is comprised of like-minded DMC owners who share a passion for our industry and the clients we serve, and it was these very owners and their teams that convinced us that joining ACCESS was absolutely the perfect choice for our company," said Mason Phippen. 
Currently ACCESS has 15 offices across North America.

It’s that time of year when groups are readying plans for holiday events, and employers are looking at how to celebrate their teams. In the fall 2022 issue of Colorado Meetings + Events, we looked at the state of holiday gatherings and found that they indeed are on the rebound. Some gatherings are going big after two years of not getting together or generally scaling back, while others are opting for in-office parties, small dinners, or community service projects. 


Uncharted Society works with outfitters across the globe to give groups and individuals the opportunity to try motorsports on BRP-certified vehicles. Teams can bond in some of the nation’s most beautiful spots on a wide range of nature tours offered on land, snow, and sea. Check out these three examples from Colorado and Utah. 


Colorado has 58 mountain peaks exceeding 14,000 feet, known locally as “fourteeners” or “14ers.” This is more than any other state and includes the 14,115-foot Pikes Peak, where standing at the summit in 1893 inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem “America” that today is known as the song “America the Beautiful.”
