IN THE GAME 2022 Was a Huge Success!

DCI’s 2022 IN THE GAME Vibrant Downtown Event was a huge success. Held April 12-15, 2022 in Colorado Springs, the event connected local leadership and downtown champions to make great strides in the work of community and economic development and making Colorado’s downtowns great places to work, live, and play. DCI loves to connect with our Downtown Do-ers, people in their communities who are working hard to get stuff done. 

DCI was honored to have so many partners from our host community, sponsors, speakers, and of course all of the DCI IN THE GAME attendees.
