Snowmass to host state tourism conference in 2022

Snowmass Village will play host to the Governor’s Colorado Tourism Conference on Sept. 21–23, 2022.

The announcement came at the close of the same conference held Nov. 3-5 in Pueblo.

Also at the conference, the Outstanding Community Tourism Initiative Award was given to the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association for its awarding 1,000 people with $100 in Glenwood Gold community currency.

“Many businesses in Glenwood Springs signed up to accept Glenwood Gold,” said a press release issued by Colorado Tourism Office. “There was no cost to the business, and they received 100% of the face-value of the community currency. Lodging properties, restaurants, and retail businesses benefited from this initiative, boosting the local economy.”
