2018 Location and Dates Announced!

We're pleased to announce the dates for the West's Premier Broadband Development Conference!

Hotel Talisa
Vail, Colorado
June 11-14, 2018

The 2018 event is being moved back to June due to numerous requests as well as to ensure that snow does not cancel the golf outing.

In 2017, our conference was Building Sustainable Communities through Smart Networks.  We explored:

  • Navigating Rights of Way and Pole Attachment Agreements
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems
  • Wireless Considerations
  • Smart Utilities
  • Evolution and Impact of Over the Top Content
  • Digital Government Services
  • How can we Partner with our Incumbent Providers
  • Navigating Financing Options

As always, Mountain Connect will continue our focus on our core conference topics:

  • Economic Development
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Policy Impacting Broadband - New Administration Expectations
  • Broadband 101 Education for Elected Officials

Once again, we hosted our event at the Keystone Resort & Conference Center in Keystone, CO! The Conference center is the largest meeting venue in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and a wide choice of hotel and condo accommodations around Lakeside Village. Please see our lodging page above for more detail.

In 2016, we were able to assist two law students travel to Washington D.C. to work with the FCC through the Dale Hatfield Open!  We are excited to announce that we are going to continue this effort in 2017 at the Keystone River Golf Club.  Like last year, proceeds from this annual golf tournament will support the Dale Hatfield Scholars Program at Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado. We are excited to partner and support the Silicon Flatirons mission and immeasurable contribution to our local and national community. Please click here for more details on the Program.
