Vail Valley Economic Development

Chris Romer
To create & market a business brand for our well-known resort community in the Vail Valley
The Vail Valley is a well known visitor destination, home to the Vail & Beaver Creek ski resorts. We are reliant upon tourism as our main economic driver and while we appreciate and support that industry, we are striving to create and market a business brand for our community to change the perception that we are only a place for recreation. We strive to be known not only as a great place to play, but a great place to work and to operate a business. This takes many forms as outlined in our Economic Development Plan; first and foremost is the creation of Vail Valley Economic Development and VailValleyMeansBusiness.com to provide compelling case studies (success stories), data/research, community information tailored to prospective businesses, and easy one-stop resources to all workforce and business support services in our service region. The business brand (Vail Valley Economic Development) and the website (VailValleyMeansBusiness.com) combine to provide tools, resources and information to the business community.
