Fall festivities were in full swing at Smart Meetings’ event held Nov. 8–10 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. Surrounded by more than 100,000 forested acres in Pikes Peak, attendees took part in exhilarating outdoor adventures, action-packed keynotes and one-on-one networking.

To kick off the conference, personal stylist Carly Himy of RSVP demonstrated how to incorporate fall fashion pieces into professional wardrobes. Meeting planners were later treated to a rustic autumnal tasting before attending an opening talk with former U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Kevin Sweeney.

Early the next morning, attendees braved the cold for an introduction to fly-fishing on the Tarryall River. Then it was time to get down to business with an educational session on mindful meetings with Holly Duckworth, and a keynote presentation on the latest hospitality trends from Gregg Herning. Meredith Oliver closed the last day with her secrets on how to drive event engagement and attendance.

The Broadmoor is a Forbes Five Star, AAA Five Diamond resort that has 779 guest rooms, 62 meeting rooms and 185,000 sq. ft. of meeting space.
