About this event

Downtown Colorado, Inc. is a unique membership association of Doers.

We are committed to building downtowns that are prosperous, equitable, creative, and welcoming. United in cause, we are Colorado’s downtown champions.

We invite you to participate in our three-day interactive IN THE GAME experience happening April 11-14 in Loveland, CO. Our annual conference provides valuable educational opportunities and peer-to-peer exchange for the leaders of Colorado's communities who are responsible for economic and community development.

The conference will feature nationally recognized keynotes and Colorado-based speakers with the shared goal of inspiring participants to action. DCI’s highly successful Challenge Studio Workshops will be the centerpiece of the 2023 annual conference, and we are working in conjunction with our ReCast City cohort for a great new experience for the Challenge Program. Stay tuned to DCI’s website and newsletters for details on speakers, lunches, tours, Challenge Studio topics, and all things IN THE GAME!
