Successful city and development planning rely on a bounty of partnership between elected officials, real estate developers, tourism, hospitality, higher education, healthcare, transportation, recruitment, and other sectors. The NoCo Trade Mission brings together Northern Colorado’s leadership for collaboration and information exchange in a new host city each year, covering topics such as lessons learned, future ideating, and community fellowship. We look forward to facilitating these important conversations during the fall season each year.
The first annual NoCo Trade Mission trip took 50 NoCo attendees to Austin, TX. We learned first-hand how the Texas capital’s top planners and key stakeholders “Keep Austin Weird,” while creating a city and community where everyone wants to be.
The second annual NoCo Trade Mission trip took our trip attendees to Salt Lake City, UT. We immersed ourselves in the entrepreneurial, collaborative spirit of the capital city and enjoyed the place where elevation meets aspiration.
Incredible connections, I was so impressed by our host city and inspired by ideas that we could bring back to Colorado.

Northern Colorado has its own unique DNA and demographic strengths. We have exciting challenges and opportunities. There is a transfer of vision and gain in motivation when we see how other communities thrive.
