Vail Valley businesses get ready for a new season

Michael KurzVail, CO, Colorado

Spring is here. The vernal equinox has passed, and the days are getting longer. First pitches have been thrown in ballparks around the country. Birds are chirping, and so are we. Why? Well, its not just that were about to swap bumps and powder stashes for golf tees and tennis balls. Its Partnership renewal season, and were really looking forward to another great year with all 800 of you.As I grab the helm of this great organization, now in its 43rd season, and meet more and more of you, Im encouraged and energized by the possibilities. Were building a better-than-ever group sales force, adding new talented and committed staff, investigating and adding important partner benefits, adding economic development to our mission and putting feet on the street to make personal connections with as many of you as possible. In other words, were doing all we can to be your best and most reliable business ally. By phone and in person, Partnership staff will be reaching out this month to share news about whats coming and to thank you for your loyalty and support. If you havent had the chance to meet me and you dont want to wait for a visit or call from us, or if its been a while since youve spent time with your favorite Partnership staff member, grab some of your folks and check out one of our April events.We kick spring off at the incredible Ludwigs at the Sonnenalp with our monthly business after-hours mixer April 16. Two days later, please join us at the Vail Chophouse for the traditional end-of-season bash at our annual Blue Jeans Lobster Networking Party. Mix and mingle with a big group of your business neighbors, and spread the good word about what you do. Buzz is definitely a good thing and a lot more fun to generate with adult beverages and great food. Just contact the Partnership at 476-1000 for more information about either of these events. Theyre your parties, and theyre just for you.We want you to know that our days begin with thoughts about you. We ask ourselves and one another how we can be a more powerful, reliable business ally, what programs and events work for you and how to structure important, valuable benefits that help you succeed and help all businesses in the valley move steadily toward our 365 goal. So whether youre a current or prospective partner, remember, you have to be with the best to play with the best in this league of our own.Michael Kurz is president and chief executive officer of the Vail Valley Partnership.
