You’ve seen the photos. You’ve heard the tales. You get it — Aspen is a great vacation destination. But did you know that, beyond being a great vacation spot, it’s also the perfect place to go for a business trip? Whether you are looking to reward key clients or pitch an idea to a potential investor, conducting your business with the snow-capped Rockies in the background is just perfect.
In today’s blog, the Superior Executive Services team is going to look at a few of the reasons why Aspen is such an ideal destination for your next business trip.
Aspen has earned a reputation for being exceptionally expensive. It’s full of luxurious resorts, natural beauty, and many dining and entertainment options. If you are coming to Aspen with the goal of spending some serious dough, you will certainly find plenty of opportunities. This creates an aura of luxury and wealth, which can make it the perfect place to carry out business deals.
In some countries, like Japan, drinking is an essential part of professional networking. In many cases, business cannot be discussed until after you have had several drinks. While those who have difficulty tip-toeing the line between professional and casual may not want to opt for this strategy, for many of us a drink or two is the ideal social lubricant. If you find yourself in this latter category, Aspen can be the perfect place for you. Aspen is known for its après skiing — a term coined by our skiing friends in the Alps. This is more than just getting sloshed after a day of skiing. It’s about enjoying drinks, friends, and the overall experience — the perfect activity for those looking to build long-lasting business relationships.
What do the Ute Indians, hippies, billionaires, silver miners, and anyone else who has visited Aspen have in common? Their jaws have all dropped when seeing Aspen’s natural beauty. Aspen is a beautiful place. Whether you visit in the summer, spring, winter, or fall, the mountains and big, open sky are sure to make an impression on you and your guests. Taking your key clients or potential business partners to Aspen and treating them to its magical beauty can work all kinds of magic on your business relationships.
Tips for Planning your Aspen Vacation
Regardless of the season, it’s best to book your visit early. Booking early gives you choice, flexibility, and assurance. Be especially mindful of this if you plan on visiting during holidays, the Winter X-games, spring break, Fourth of July, and other peak-visitation times.
Depending on the season, the drive from Denver International Airport to Aspen can take anywhere from three to five hours, and even longer during inclement weather. To avoid this altogether, consider flying directly into the Aspen Airport (psst, we can help arrange this. We can even arrange for a private charter flight).
