Denver 2022

Downtown Partnership’s Inaugural Economic Development Trip June 1-3, 2022

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED – PLEASE CONTACT Rebecca Rybczyk to be placed on the waitlist.

Following the challenges of the pandemic, the Downtown San Diego Partnership has renewed its commitment to fostering a culturally vibrant and economically prosperous urban core in San Diego with the announcement of the inaugural working trip Discovering Downtowns – Denver 2022. During this three-day trip, members will tour projects in line with those happening in San Diego, hear from experts on best practices and economic insights, enjoy networking opportunities with receptions and happy hours and strengthen the relationship among sister cities.

Downtown San Diego is well-positioned for significant growth over the next five years with transformational development projects under construction including IQHQ’s RaDD development, turning Tailgate Park from a parking lot to a vibrant mixed-use project and Horton Plaza in line to be Downtown’s first life-science hub. Paired with exciting infrastructure efforts including the Gaslamp Promenade, the Downtown Arts District and East Village Green Park under planning the delegation of the Downtown San Diego Partnership is eager to travel, tour and hear expert opinions on efforts of paralleled projects in the Downtown area of Denver, Colorado.

Our team intends to make this a regular experience to offer our membership. If you have ideas, comments or things you’d like to share with the team as we are building out our agenda, please contact Rebecca Rybczyk at
