Operation Altitude design of the #IMEX18 Destination Colorado booth is a crowd favorite for the fourth year in a row.
Destination Colorado IMEX Booth Design Wows Again
The Destination Colorado booth at IMEX has become a bit of an oasis among the maze of booths at IMEX. With its iconic Glamping theme that juxtaposes luxurious elements with a rustic charm, the space is inviting and functional. Hosting 18 exhibitors who represent the vast range of group options in Colorado from Aspen and Snowmass to Aurora and Colorado Springs and everything in between, the booth is a hub of activity and valuable resources.
The lovely Glamping decor including the wildly popular faux firepit have been a crowd favorite for the past few years. Each year, the booth layout is enhanced. Be sure to check back next year and see what's new!
