Initiative – Leverage new technologies to implement tourism strategies:

Wayin (social photos), OnceThere (tour bookings) and other new, innovative tools are being assessed and utilized to keep VISIT DENVER on the cutting edge.

Initiative 6.xii Expand promotion of the live music scene (e.g. comprehensive music calendar, annual event):

For the second year, VISIT DENVER brought a Red Rocks replica to Chicago’s Taste of Randolph street festival to highlight Denver’s music scene. The Denver365 events calendar is featuring an expanded music section. And, see Initiative 2.i regarding a multi-day music festival being planned for Overland Park Golf Course.
