Location: Colorado Springs City Auditorium
Why should you attend?
As a stakeholder in our community, you care about our region – as a place to do business, raise a family, and provide opportunities for better health and quality of life for our citizens.
Because you live here, you already have a certain amount of appreciation for our natural assets, such as Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods. What you know intuitively – that outdoor recreation matters to our community – we want to help you understand in dollars and cents. It’s time to think of outdoor recreation as an economic driver to this region, not just something locals do on the weekends and tourists do on vacation.
The State of the Outdoors event will help you discover why outdoor recreation should matter to you and how you can invest in your business by investing in the outdoors.
Plus, there will be opportunities to ask questions, engage with the speakers, and explore our region’s outdoor assets with local outdoor businesses and nonprofits.
*Your ticket includes light hors d’eourvres and beer/soft drink.
