Presented by Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance and Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC at Colorado Springs City Auditorium, Colorado Springs CO

Oct 29 2019

Network and learn how your business can benefit from the outdoor community’s offerings before and after the program!

You’re invited to the Third Annual State of the Outdoors with the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance (PPORA) and the Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC.

The first hour will highlight the Pikes Peak region’s outdoor businesses, nonprofits, and land management entities with an Outdoor Community Expo.

Network with the outdoor community and learn how your company can benefit from their offerings; perhaps you’re looking for an outdoor experiential activity, an alternative to golf with clients, corporate volunteer opportunities, or an alternative to your annual company picnic.

The expo will be followed by a keynote address from Betsy Markey, executive director of Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade. Markey will share Colorado’s economic development landscape, the outdoor recreation industry’s role, and how important it is for communities to support this industry.

Plus hear from:

  • Nathan Fey, Director of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Industry Office
  • John Suthers, Colorado Springs Mayor
  • Dirk Draper, President and CEO of the Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC
  • Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance
