Promoting your Event, Celebration, or Meeting

The Durango Area Tourism Office is here to help you make your event, celebration or meeting in Durango as successful as possible! In order to help you promote your event to your attendees, we have compiled the following resources we think you’ll find helpful: promotional copy, Durango logos and photos, a Durango area map, and local media contacts.

In addition, we invite you to contact the Durango Area Group Sales Office to tell us about your event, so that we can help promote it locally (if you’d like).

About Durango: Promotional Copy

Looking for a little promotional copy about Durango? Below is a brief description of the Durango area to use when promoting your event to your attendees!

  • get real!  real mountains. real town. real colorado.
  • Durango, Colorado
  • Durango has many claims to fame: from Mountain Bike Mecca to Best Water Town in the West; best scenic train ride on the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad to most friendly vacation and ski town; superb and varied restaurants and dining to most outdoor adventures!  It’s the kind of town you daydream about—spend a few days here and you’ll find out what the locals already know:  this is a real town.  The scenery is awe-inspiring and there are endless ways to reinvigorate, rejuvenate and relax.  Soar through the Aspens on a Tree Top Adventure, hike miles of trails, or fish our Gold Medal waters of the Animas River. Getting here is a scenic drive or easy flight--Durango offers 14 flights daily (United Airlines from Denver and American Airlines from Phoenix and Dallas) and additional winter service for Durango Mountain Resort.  We guarantee that you will find friendly locals, a magnificent mountain setting, a healthy pace of life, clean air, limitless activities, inspiring art galleries, delicious cuisine and 300 plus days of sunshine. For information on activities, lodging and anything else you need to know about Durango, visit our website at www.durango.org.  Get Real—Durango, Colorado.
