In 2014, the Colorado Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) commissioned
Tourism Economics, a nationally recognized research firm concentrating on the tourism industry, to conduct a fact-based analysis. The goal of the analysis was to examine local destination marketing funding and, if additional funds were recommended, to research methods by which those funds could be raised.
This analysis was supported and sponsored, in part, by 26 local organizations, individuals and municipalities.
