Company Description:

The Broadmoor is large. When meeting planners consider the Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, they see 3,000 acres, 784 rooms, 185,000 square feet of meeting space, including the 60,000 square foot Broadmoor Hall, adjacent to Colorado Hall  with 15,000 square feet; the International Center with 18,000 square feet of space; and the potential of another 35,000 square feet in a portable structure adjacent to Broadmoor Hall connected by an internal walkway. In total, the complex of meeting space can accommodate upwards of 9,000 attendees.

But sometimes there are groups that want a location that is second-to-none, all the amenities a resort has to offer, but at first review, the meeting seems simply too large to be accommodated. When that happens, it takes more than a resort; it takes a city, or at least a partnership, to make a conference and tradeshow work.

To attract groups like the annual meeting of the Space Foundation Symposium that need a large venue with a variety of guestroom offerings and pricing, The Broadmoor formed a unique alliance of support properties. “Broadmoor Connection” is a coalition of partners that includes the 316-room Cheyenne Mountain Resort, plus 299 rooms at the Hilton Doubletree World Arena and 500 rooms at the nearby Hotel Elegante. All three hotels are within five minutes of Broadmoor Hall and extend the number of sleeping rooms from The Broadmoor’s 784 to more than 1,700 accommodations, giving “The Connection” the ability to serve a previously unattainable group clientele.

“The Space Foundation’s annual meeting and trade show is a great example of how ‘The Connection’ works,” Pepper Dombroski, Director of Sales for The Broadmoor. “This event has met here for over 30 years and has become the premier meeting and trade show in the space industry. The Space Symposium now attracts more than 9,000 attendees from around the world; the trade show alone utilizes all of our primary space, as well as all breakout and function space around the resort. It is a huge boon to the Colorado Springs economy, but we could not continue to be successful in attracting this business without our partnership offering a wide range of rooms and rates.”

Transportation by Connection members to and from the venue is included in the room rate, giving large meetings the functionality of a Convention Center but at a substantially lower fee.

“We have three terrific partners joining us in ‘The Connection,’” says Dombroski. “We can now offer groups not only our 784 rooms, but an additional 1,000 within a five minute drive radius. This gives meetings and tradeshows the functionality of a municipal convention center, but without the extra fees and costs associated with venues in metropolitan locations.”

Located 15 minutes from the Colorado Springs Airport, The Broadmoor is easily accessible with more than 60 daily non-stop flights, as well as connecting flights from every major U.S. hub through Denver, only 70 minutes away.

The resort campus has 784 rooms, suites and cottages. It includes two golf courses, a Forbes Five-Star spa and fitness center, nationally recognized tennis staff and program, 24 retail boutiques and 10 restaurants, including Forbes Five-Star restaurant Penrose Room, as well as 10 additional cafés and lounges. Other activities include falconry, guided mountain biking, hiking, rock-climbing tours, fly fishing, paintball and more. The Broadmoor Wilderness Experience properties are three unique, all-inclusive, boutique facilities that highlight a true Colorado experience while offering mountain rustic luxury along with The Broadmoor’s legendary service. In addition, The Broadmoor owns and manages attractions that include Seven Falls and The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure zip line courses.

Product Information:
When the legendary resort officially opened its doors June 29, 1918, the world was introduced to the jewel of the Rocky Mountains. The rest, as they say, is history. Situated at the gateway to the Colorado Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs, The Broadmoor and its Wilderness Experience properties of The Ranch at Emerald Valley, Cloud Camp and Fishing Camp encompass 5,000 acres.
