Hosting an ILEA Denver meeting in Colorado Springs has been a long-time vision of board member, Tami Forero, owner of Forte Events. In November, this vision became reality as over sixty event professionals from both Denver and Colorado Springs converged at the historic Colorado Springs School for an evening of networking over drinks from Sovereignty Wines, a lavish dinner from Garden of the Gods Gourmet displayed under an ornate one of a kind Russian chandelier, and an excellent educational presentation about the value of networking and the art of building relationships, given by national speaker, Tami Forero.
Laser Sound equipped the event with sound equipment, T’da Design and Event Rents provided lovely decor in fall flavor, and Splendor for your Guests brought some warm fur wraps for the chilly evening. Meanwhile, caricature art by Cartoon Bill Crowley added an element of fun while Amanda Lamb Photography captured great images of the evening (featured in our blog post) and Pure Cinematography captured the night in video (above). The event was so well-received, even after having been rescheduled by two days due to weather, that attendees lingered nearly an hour after the official end, chatting, laughing, and building relationships…the true value of ILEA realized.
