The Greater Louisville Idea Development Expedition (GLIDE) is an annual, invitation-only executive program for regional business and community leaders. The program promotes learning, brainstorming and relationship building that is critical to regional visioning and progress. GLIDE Denver attendees will learn how this thriving city attracts and retains talented professionals and embraces creativity to craft a vibrant community.

GLI is focusing on initiatives that lead to regional business attraction. Visiting The Mile High City will allow us to learn from the best economic development corporation in the country, Metro Denver, explore their diverse economy and learn more about urban and regional grow and design.

Denver has been able to attract the headquarters of major financial and technology firms by capitalizing on low real estate prices and a growing, educated population.  Colorado is the second fastest growing and second most highly-educated state in the U.S. In 2016, 39.2 percent of the population held a bachelor’s degree or higher according to Census Data.  The majority of Metro Denver’s population growth is Millennials working in the leisure & hospitality, professional & business services, wholesale & retail trade, and government sectors.

This three-day trip has become the most valuable opportunity to build collaboration and make positive changes in our region. GLIDE is designed to provide community representatives, elected officials, entrepreneurs, education delegates and business leaders with the opportunity to see how selected cities have overcome obstacles and achieved success.

Registration includes two night hotel accommodations at one of Downtown Denver’s newest hotels, the ART, a 2017 Conde Nest “Readers Choice Award “ #1 Hotel in Colorado. The trip price is $2995 and for the first time ever, includes all meals, snacks, receptions, round trip charter transportation and briefing materials.
