Unique Times, Unique Meetings

Colorado is ready when you are! Here are the latest COVID-19 details.

Way before COVID-19 impacted the way we live, work and gather, Colorado’s meetings culture was laser-focused on healthy lifestyles, innovation, flexible venues that flow to the outdoors, unforgettable adventures and local experiences. And the best thing? After a long day of work and play, friendly Western hospitality awaits!

We’re all craving face-to-face interaction and looking for innovative ways to connect safely in these crazy times. There’s no need to do the planning alone as Destination Colorado and its partners stand ready to assist and provide the latest solutions and information.

Safety Precautions and Information

Colorado’s meetings industry, destinations, local governments, and state agencies are focused on providing safe, memorable and exceptional experiences for groups. Hotels, resorts, outfitters, restaurants and the whole range of suppliers have carefully restructured their operations and offerings to provide great indoor and outdoor options, implemented health and wellness protocols, and come up with cool new approaches to meet in-person or in a hybrid fashion.

We’ve come up with several helpful links to stay current with what is happening in the Centennial State. Always check with local destination marketing organizations for the latest COVID-related information!

  • The Colorado Tourism Office has updates on travel throughout the state
  • The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment has created a COVID status dial and offers guidance for wearing masks.
  • Colorado’s 5 Star State Certification is set up at the county or municipality level to encourage businesses to implement safety measures beyond what is already required by public health orders and guidelines that will help slow the spread of COVID-19. See the “5 Star Certification Program mitigation strategy checklists” for great resources on hosting safe events.
  • On the national level, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides an abundance of helpful information on its website.

Easy Travel

Colorado is an easy drive from many states and also has the award-winning Denver International Airport. What isn’t as known are the easy flights to regional airports sprinkled around the state, with direct options available from a variety of cities. Denver International Airport has a dedicated page to Covid-related travel through Denver.

Colorado Is Built For This

Staying six feet apart isn’t difficult when there are 66 million acres of public lands. No joke! With so much open space in Colorado, safety measures are naturally in place for a vast range of activities groups can tap into. Cabins, yurts and glamping are fun ways to get into the Colorado spirit or check out other nontraditional venues like ranches that cover thousands of acres and amphitheaters and music tents in places like Vail and Aspen.

In Colorado cities like Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder and Pueblo, there are plenty of places to get outdoors. Rent a park pavilion for a picnic, head to a golf course, or get out on lakes to stand up paddle board, trails to bike or walk, and hip rooftop patios for views and a cocktail or two.

Plenty of ballrooms and meeting and event spaces throughout the state overflow onto patios to tap into Colorado’s year-round outdoor lifestyle.
