Easy to get to and full of adventure, culture and natural wonders, Colorado Springs is a winning choice. Here are seven compelling reasons to send your RFP to Visit Colorado Springs: 1. MOUNTAIN SCENERY: The city's location at the base of Pikes Peak and the surrounding mountains provides a beautiful and unique setting for any event. The natural beauty of the area can serve as a backdrop for outdoor events and can also be incorporated into indoor events through the use of natural light and mountain views. 2. OUTDOOR ADVENTURE: The city's proximity to the mountains offers a wide range of outdoor activities for attendees, such as hiking, biking and rock climbing, which can be incorporated into team building and recreational activities before, during and after a conference. 3. MILITARY PRESENCE: Colorado Springs is home to several military installations, including the United States Air Force Academy, Peterson Air Force Base, Ft Carson Mountain Post and Schriever Air Force Base, which can be interesting for events catering to military or veteran groups. 4.

CLIMATE: Colorado Springs has low humidity and is protected from the elements by Pikes Peak and the foothills known as the Front Range. Yes, we get snow, but not as much as other western cities such as Denver and Minneapolis. Our abundant sunshine means the snow never sticks around for long. Summer evenings are pleasantly cool and our fall weather is spectacular. Overall, Colorado Springs offers a unique blend of natural beauty, outdoor recreation, military history, cultural arts and meeting facilities that will provide a memorable and productive experience for meeting attendees.
