Planning a meeting takes a great deal of time and effort, and Visit Durango is here to be of assistance every step of the way. We offer complimentary meeting planning assistance and unlimited access to all the information and tools you need to create a successful and inspired business event! 

Whether you’re planning a corporate retreat for a handful of colleagues or a networking conference for a few hundred, the Durango area offers a unique variety of meeting space – from state-of-the-art conference rooms to distinctive venues you’ll find only in Durango. 

Durango Conference Activities

Make your meeting memorable any time of the year with unique team building activities available only in Durango. Our 6 recommendations are below:

  1. Experience the true meaning of Farm-to-Table with lunch at James Ranch and learn about their "table on the farm" philosophy and family owned operations. 
  2. Get a taste of the Old West with music, comedy and a chuckwagon dinner at Bar D Chuckwagon
  3. Explore the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum to learn about the history of the railroad in Durango. With early planning, your group can tour the railyards and learn about the innerworkings of the train.
  4. Take the team for an adrenaline rush and zipline through the trees with Soaring Tree Top Adventures.
  5. Team build with horse empowerment exercises through our local corrals.
  6. Get a taste of any of our locally made beer at our many breweries in town. 

Arrive early or stay another day to visit all neighboring attractions like jeep tours in the San Juan Mountains, activities at Vallecito Lake, a trip to Silverton on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, or exploring Mesa Verde National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With year-round group and team building activities, it’s easy to plan a successful and memorable meeting in Durango.
