Aspen Ideas Festival shines again

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Aspen Chamber Resort Association, I want to extend our heartfelt thanks and congratulations to Walter Isaacson and Kitty Boone for a phenomenal 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival.

The Aspen Institute helped define modern Aspen, and we appreciate the excellent programming that takes place throughout the year. In its eighth year, the Aspen Ideas Festival has come to be a much anticipated part of Aspen’s extraordinary summer. Where else can you listen to and engage with the visionaries and experts that the Aspen Ideas Festival draws to our unique mountain community?

From a business standpoint, Aspen hotels, restaurants, retailers and outfitters appreciate the influx of people to our community. In addition, the media attention that Aspen Ideas Festival shines on Aspen is invaluable exposure. And from a human standpoint, the programming that is accessible to locals and visitors enriches our lives in ways that are immeasurable.

We look forward to the Aspen Ideas Festival 2013 and to this being a growing and vital part of Aspen’s summer calendar for many years to come.

Debbie Braun

President and CEO, Aspen Chamber Resort Association
