Colorado Springs – Meeting Higher Expectations!
When people meet at an altitude of 6,035 ft., remarkable things happen. Your vision clears and obstacles seem to disappear. Colorado Springs is the perfect location for your next meeting, conference, convention or event. We offer convenient access, unique properties and venues, an inviting climate, spectacular scenery and exciting activities and attractions.
Convenient Access: Colorado Springs is located just 70 miles south of Denver on Interstate 25. The Colorado Springs Airport (www.FlyCOS.com) is located just 11 miles from our downtown area and offers nonstop and direct flights from all over the country.
Unique Properties: Colorado Springs is home to The Broadmoor Hotel, Cheyenne Mountain Resort, The Antlers Hilton and many other unique, full-service facilities. We have 5,000 convention rooms and over 495,000 sq. ft. of meeting space. Venues such as the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, Flying W Ranch, U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Glen Eyrie Castle and Garden of the Gods Trading Post offer an incredible experience for your attendees. Whether you are looking for an authentic western setting or an exhilarating Rocky Mountain experience, you’ll find it in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.
Inviting Climate: Colorado Springs boasts over 300 days of sunshine each year. Our altitude ensures a mild climate – the summers don’t get too hot and the winters don’t get too cold. Colorado Springs is colored by a multitude of wildflowers, and fall is ushered in with blazing yellow aspen leaves set against the deep greens of our ponderosa pines and blue spruce. Despite our proximity to the Rocky Mountains, we get much less snow than you might think and what we do get usually melts very quickly.
Spectacular Scenery: Colorado Springs is home to Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain, a majestic mountain that serves as a stunning backdrop to our city. The 14,115-foot summit is accessible by car on the Pikes Peak Highway, by rail on The Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway or on by foot on Barr Trail. The Royal Gorge Bridge towers 1,000 feet above the Arkansas River and the red rocks of Garden of the Gods Park are as beautiful and mysterious as the name suggests.
Exciting Activities & Attractions: Colorado Springs is home to over 55 natural and man-made attractions such as the U.S. Air Force Academy, The Broadmoor Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds Mountain Park and Ghost Town Museum. Enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking through Red Rock Canyon Open Space, biking down Pikes Peak Highway, horseback riding through Garden of the Gods Park or rafting down the Arkansas River. There’s so much to see and do, attendees will want to come a few days early or stay a few days after the event.
