COLORADO MEETINGS INCENTIVE
Meetings and Events Incentive Program
Colorado passed the meetings & incentives bill on June 6th. The bill, in partnership with the Colorado tourism office, provides rebates and direct support to eligible events in Colorado to assist in the state’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program is designed to attract eligible meetings and events that have the potential to generate significant economic impact and affect multiple counties across Colorado. The program offers rebates of up to 10% of the hard costs of an eligible event. The program may also offer rebates of up to 25% for COVID-19-related costs, which are hard costs that are directly related to complying with public health orders or other mandates issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
