The Globe and Mail, Canada’s fourth largest newspaper, has selected
Denver, Colorado as the best city in the world for holding a business
The selection panel consisted of airline chiefs, frequent fliers, meeting experts and business travel pros.
According to Zane Kerby, senior VP of the National Business Travel Association, Denver’s central U.S. location, cheap flights into DIA, and the proximity of most hotels to the Colorado Convention Center all were factors in choosing Denver. In addition, Denver’s travel taxes – a measure of accommodation, rental car and airport taxes – are among the lowest in the U.S
New York City was picked as Best for Business over all. Other categories and selections were: Pro-business (Sao Paolo, Brazil), Best Sightseeing (Istanbul), Most Exotic (Mumbai, India), Best Buzz (London), Freshest Downtown (Los Angeles), Best Comeback (New Orleans), City to Watch (Shenzhen, China) and Best Music Scene (Nashville).
Bottom line: Denver is among some pretty good company.
