2017 Vail Valley Business Forum Schedule

Colorado Demographers Office

The State Demography Office is the primary state agency for population and demographic information. Its data are used by state agencies to forecast demand for facilities and services. These data are also used by local governments and non-profit organizations in the state to anticipate growth or decline and to plan and develop programs and community resources. The office’s location in the Department of Local Affairs insures that its data and information is developed in ways that account for local input and needs. The office makes the data publicly available on their website, answers requests for economic and demographic data and provides training workshops on accessing and using the data.

This program will review demographic trends in Colorado and Eagle County today and in the future – what will be the impacts and opportunities?  This presentation will focus on population change throughout the state with a focus on Eagle County and the resort region. What are the forecasts for population change, aging, the labor force, and jobs?

Chris Romer, President and CEO of the Vail Valley Partnership moderates the discussion.

This event is co-hosted by Vail Valley PartnershipVail Symposium and Colorado Mountain College – Vail Valley.
