Colorado’s Largest Tech Networking Event Keeps $1 Billion in Business and Jobs in State

C-Level @ A Mile High pairs solution providers with executive decision makers to spur a Colorado marketplace for technology projects

DENVER – February 16, 2012 – Rarely do you find an event that is a marketplace of business opportunities for the majority of its participants. Taking networking to a new level, Colorado Technology Association’s C-Level @ A Mile High event puts executive-level buyers (C-Levels) directly in contact with the technology solution providers they need. It’s the single biggest technology deal-making event in Colorado with more than 900 business professionals and technology leaders attending.

Seven years ago, the Colorado Technology Association (CTA) created the C-Level @ A Mile High event in response to feedback from CIO’s that they wanted to do more business with Colorado-based technology solutions providers, but didn’t like or have the time to take cold calls.

"C-Level at A Mile High was created to help stimulate Colorado’s technology economy and help build connections across this growing sector. After seven years this event has almost quadrupled in size to nearly $1 billion in potential business for attendees offering technology solutions for our C-Level celebrities.We’ve not only helped our members grow, but our greater community as well,said Steve Foster, President and CEO of the Colorado Technology Association.

The event draws C-Level IT celebrities with either a project they are looking for help with or just wanting to meet qualified vendors for future projects. Projects cover many areas, but some include Cloud Computing, Mobile App/Web Development, Security, Virtualization, CRM/ERP/SAP and Staffing.

Wilson Davis, Vice President of Corporate IT at Western Union is a returning celebrity because he found the event so worthwhile. "C-Level gave me broader perspectives on what local, innovative companies in technology are doing and how they can support my company’s objectives. I rarely take cold calls, but I was able start solid professional relationships through this event—and to those people I will pick-up the phone and do business.”

It’s a win-win event in so many ways…Companies with C-Levels up for bid benefit from meeting qualified solution providers. C-Levels have the opportunity to build many lasting business relationships. Companies bidding on C-Levels benefit from meeting IT decision makers that may become their next client. Silent Auction winners enjoy an array of unique and exotic items. And, all attendees benefit from the fantastic networking and satisfaction knowing they supported the Association’s largest fundraising event.

Nearly 70 company’s have committed their CIOs to the event, which include AT&T, CH2MHill, New Belgium, Gates, Latisys, Google, Janus Capital Group, Newmont Mining, ViaWest, DaVita, MapQuest, Vail Resorts and many more.

C-Level @ A Mile High is the largest fundraising activity for the Association.
