Helping people better understand the programs and funding of Visit Colorado Springs.
Visit Colorado Springs is a private, non-profit 501(c)(6) trade organization that provides information and inspiration to people thinking of traveling to the Pikes Peak region. Our funding is provided by both public and private sources. We are committed to complete transparency in how we are funded, how we allocate these funds, how we operate and the results that we achieve. Tourism promotion is a tool that helps our local community by putting people to work and making this a great place to live - it's likely that someone in your family or one of your neighbors directly benefits from the tourism industry. And the entire community benefits indirectly. Tourism promotion is an investment in our community and our people. The work of Visit Colorado Springs puts people to work and provides economic opportunity. Tourism promotion is funded largely by those who visit and not the people that live here. We thank the community and our local, state and nationally elected officials for their ongoing support as we provide this important public service.
Colorado Springs & the Pikes Peak Region will be the leading U.S. destination for experiential travel, inspired by the majesty of Pikes Peak; iconic, accessible natural wonders; and the Olympic & Paralympic spirit.
VCOS Mission Statement
We create economic vitality through memorable visits to the wonders of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.
Raised in Ohio & Virginia, Doug has spent his career inviting guests and visitors to make memories as well as creating a work culture that makes employees feel special. You’ll often find him on the golf course at Garden of the Gods Resort, and he’s most likely to tell you a story about a family member and/or their pet. You can ask Doug why we’re branded Olympic City USA!
Born in the Hills of Tennessee, Jason served his country for 26 years and found a love of tourism through his time as a Park Ranger. His joy comes from helping others, especially in the great outdoors. Jason is most likely to turn on “park ranger” mode when meeting a visitor, and he loves Pikes Peak. Ask Jason about the best Jeep trails in the Pikes Peak Region.
Born and raised in Montana, Kathy has made her home in Colorado Springs for the past 36 years with no plans of ever leaving. Her passion is sharing the opportunities of meeting in the Pikes Peak Region. She loves The PepperTree Restaurant and is most likely to ask about your pets. Ask Kathy about finding the perfect location for your next conference!
Though from the East Coast, Amy can't imagine ever leaving Colorado Springs. She has an abundance of gratitude for living here, promoting the region to visitors and supporting the vitality of our community. Bear Creek Dog Park is one of her favorite spots in COS, and she’s most likely to see the humor in most situations. Ask her about why tourism needs to be a shared community value.
Christy worked for the Durham Bulls Baseball Club and the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce before moving from Durham, NC to Colorado Springs. Now she spends her days telling people where to go (In a nice way, of course)! She loves North Cheyenne Cañon Park and is the most likely to get creative. Ask her what you can do in Colorado Springs in only 2 hours.
