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 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 ( combine to provide tools, resources and information to the business community.
