Urban Renewal Partners Summit
December 1, 2017 | 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Location: Wheat Ridge Recreation Center
In the world of internet shopping and the Amazon increasing markets each day, the small business owner has legitimate fears for the future. But there is hope for the small retailer! When the small business begins to understand different demographics and consumer preferences for experience, a world of opportunity emerges! Consider some simple steps to help downtown visitors cross the threshold of your store and become customers for life!
Join local leaders, business owners, and community development champs in an interactive workshop about collaborative marketing, entrepreneurship, and fully leveraging your resources — lead by experts working at the statewide level.
Also join us earlier in the day for a complimentary Discover Walsenburg Opportunity Tour. We will be meeting at 3 PM to learn more about Walsenburg before the business training.
Join us for a fun night with artists, creative thinkers and supporters of small business from around the state! Come Support the Museum of Friends to Save the Roof and Dick Building in the heart of downtown Walsenburg!
Museum Of Friends is an on-going labor of love that began when opened in 2006. Unlike most museums MOF is egalitarian and inclusive, which speaks volumes about the diversity of MOF’s permanent collection and exhibition planning. Recently History Colorado awarded MOF a capital improvement grant to start their restoration efforts. The grant money needs a 25% match or $66,000.
This gala event will include an art sale, a live DJ, entertainment, a cash bar, and Alys Romer’s wonderful tasty treats. Each ticket to this event will raise the matching funds and awareness of the need to have a Fine Art Museum in the Walsenburg community. Online ticket sales will end Nov. 28. After Nov. 28, you will have to register and pay at the door.
DCI will also be holding a Downtown Institute for Business: Small Business Thriving in an Amazon World along with a Discover Walsenburg Opportunity Tour beforehand. Click here for more information.
DCI's 2018 Vibrant Downtown Event IN THE GAME will be held on April 10-13 in Boulder, CO. IN THE GAME is a three day interactive educational experience.
