C Level Secondary

 


Where strong relationships begin, and tech business gets done

C-Level @ A Mile High is where Colorado tech companies can go beyond networking, do business and build lasting relationships. We gather top CXOs from Colorado and beyond for one evening to provide businesses of all sizes the opportunity to meet these individuals, bid on their time and follow up on project opportunities. It’s the perfect opportunity to build relationships with peers, win business and be introduced to tech companies and influential IT leaders. And this year, we’re bringing you the world-class C-Level experience from the comfort of your own home!

C-Level @ A Mile High has always been an opportunity for Colorado’s tech community to come together to support Colorado Technology Association, make connections and get business done. This year we need that sense of community more than ever. As we all work toward this new normal, let’s mark July 30th as a day to come together for Colorado tech.

“The Colorado tech community is very open, collaborative and engaged. What I love about C-Level @ A Mile High are the connections and valuable business relationships that grow out of this event each year. This is an opportunity to gain insight from technology leaders, and at the same time see and explore the vibrant IT landscape we have in Colorado.”

– Suma Nallapati, SVP & CDO, Dish Network

FAQ

  • C-Level @ A Mile High is CTA’s annual signature event that brings the community together for a night of networking and connection.

    At the event we’ll have 50+ Celebrities (C-Level executives) available to meet. Each Celebrity has put together a Celebrity Auction Package that attendees can bid on throughout the evening. The winner of each Celebrity Auction will win additional time with the Celebrity along with a unique auction experience – a round of golf, a cooking class, etc. Don’t worry, we’ll ensure these packages can be executed safely as we navigate restrictions around COVID-19. These auction packages will be released as the event nears.
