“Tour Colorado has been the Colorado marketing arm attracting Group Tour and Packaged Travel to our state. This is essential, especially now with diminishing state funds to market Colorado. Grand Junction has definitely seen an increase in buses this year. This affects lodging, restaurants, wineries, shops, and more. We all need to pull together and make Tour Colorado even stronger.”

“Still after all these years, the value of membership well exceeds the annual dues. If for no other reason to become a member, the travel show leads alone provide the ROI I need. These leads have resulted in many bookings, and the networking among members for business is tremendous. Tour Colorado members epitomize Colorado tourism experts.”

Francisca Headrick | Director of Sales

“I have been a member of Tour Colorado for 10 years. The value in our membership not just through the fantastic relationships I have developed over the years, but also the leads generated at the various tradeshows Tour Colorado attends on our part. Many of us do not have the financial ability to attend all this shows, nor the workforce. Tour Colorado meetings have also provided beneficial information pertinent to the tour and travel industry, helping us all stay in the forefront.”

Shannon Dempsey, CHSP | National Sales Manager

Due to my Tour Colorado membership, I have booked two groups in the coming year totaling almost $1000 in revenue. This more than covers the cost of my membership and proves, once again, that Tour Colorado is the voice for Colorado Tourism destinations.”

Jen Kirkham | Membership & Group Sales Manager
The Wildlife Experience, Parker, CO

“I just love Tour Colorado! I have been able to meet the best people in Colorado’s tourism industry and connect with them knowing we all have the same goals in mind. Not only do I receive great leads from the industry tradeshows Tour Colorado attends, but I have received several leads from members inside the organization, which serves to validate my membership even more.”

Rachel Solis | Sales Manager

“Within a week after receiving and following up on the NTA 2010 leads, I booked some great business.” I have been a member of Tour Colorado from the beginning and highly recommend membership.”
