Thank you for taking the time to read about Tour Colorado membership and membership benefits. Tour Colorado brings together Colorado destinations, attractions, lodgers and tourism based service providers as members in one statewide marketing organization. Tour Colorado is positioned as the authority about Colorado for North American Tour Operators and Packaged Travel Planners.
Your Tour Colorado membership presents you with exciting and invaluable opportunities. If on your own, you were to attend each industry trade show, the cost is approximately $3,500 or more. Tour Colorado represents you and brings back leads from these tradeshows, which are immediately sent out to membership. Members have told us that even one good lead is able to pay for membership. At these important industry trade shows, Tour Colorado normally has pre-set appointments and speaking opportunities with tour operators to promote Colorado and our entire Tour Colorado membership. Information sheets about Colorado and specifically, member profile sheets are given out. Often, Tour Colorado is asked to speak, and present information directly benefitting members.
Each year, Tour Colorado represents our members at the following industry tradeshows:
American Bus Association Marketplace (ABA)
National Tourism Association Convention (NTA)
Travel Alliance Partners (TAPDANCE)
Student Youth Travel Association Conference (SYTA)
Travel Industry Association of Colorado (TIAC)
Tour Colorado hosts a meeting for the Membership 4 to 5 times each year. The meetings are held at member locations around the state, this allows members an opportunity to showcase their location and business. Tour Colorado meetings provide excellent opportunities to network and do business with other members and also to learn about different aspects of the tourism industry from our exceptional guest speakers. Every year we host special guest speakers, the past we have had the key leaders from NTA, SYTA and ABA speak to our members. We are fortunate to have relationships with such industry leaders and organizations. They bring a wealth of current information that helps our businesses grow and thrive.
