• Colorado Meetings + Events Announces 12th Annual Best of Colorado Awards

    POSTED December 4, 2017

Colorado’s Meetings Week in March always kicks off with the industry event of the season, Colorado Meetings + Events magazine’s Best of Colorado reader’s choice awards. Join 500 planners and suppliers from around the state and beyond on March 12, 2018 from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at Denver Place to celebrate excellence, network with industry peers, and experience the latest in food, beverage and entertainment.

Readers have cast more than 4,000 votes in 25 categories, with the winners revealed the evening of the event along with seven new Hall of Fame inductees selected by the magazine’s editorial advisory board. Each year, Best of Colorado also highlights a new venue or innovative way to utilize an existing space. This year’s event is at Denver Place, a commercial building located at 999 18th Street in Denver with a large, two-story foyer. See what happens when the creative minds of a team of talented partners unite.

Registration information for Best of Colorado will be posted online in January 2018; make sure to register early as the event sells out. 

Colorado Meetings Week continues with the 18th annual MIC of Colorado Educational Conference and Trade Show on March 13-14. This innovative and energetic conference brings together more than 1,000 attendees at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver for outstanding learning, networking and business ideas. 

It’s not just the places and providers that make our industry great, but also the people. Here are the seven great minds we proudly celebrate as selected by the Illinois Meetings + Events Editorial Advisory Board.


Every year, we ask you—our faithful readers—to tell us the best of the best in the Illinois meetings and events world. Your votes always result in a diverse crop of winners, from F&B to event décor to A/V and more, and this year is no exception. 

Our winners are located all over the state, from Schiller Park and Chicago to Galena and Northbrook. Some have recently opened while others are passing decades in the business. A team of five work at one company, while another has thousands of employees.
