The Colorado Springs Economic Development Corp. will host 11 national site selection consultants from around the country on a “familiarization tour” of the Pikes Peak region.
The three-day tour, slated for September 24-26, is designed to showcase the area’s quality of life which includes workforce, business climate and real estate opportunities, according to Executive Vice President David White.
Five of the consultants represent six active projects that are specifically looking at the Pikes Peak region for potential corporate expansions or relocations.
The catch – the EDC can’t afford to foot the entire bill so they’re asking for sponsors to underwrite various events.
These include underwriting a breakfast at The Broadmoor, lunch at the Club at Flying Horse and dinner at the Garden of the Gods Club as well as a one-day recreational outing at the Flying Horse Ranch in Jefferson, Colo. Sponsorships run about $1,000 and allow underwriting companies five minutes at the podium, as well as extra tickets for each by-invitation-only or major investor’s event.
