C Level Secondary


Go Beyond Networking

Join us for Colorado tech’s biggest night of the year, C-Level @ A Mile High!

C-Level @ A Mile High puts attendee connections at the center of our program. This year, we’re excited to be back in person at Empower Field at Mile High! At C-Level, we gather 50+ top tech executives and give them the title of “Celebrity”. As our C-Level Celebrities, these executives attend the event to connect with our attendees and share information on upcoming IT projects.

At our largest fundraiser of the year, our C-Level Celebrities put together amazing auction experience packages – such as a hike, sporting event or cooking class – that you can bid on throughout the evening in an effort to win the chance to spend even more time with them following the event.

This is a great way to support CTA and the Colorado tech community and to build long-lasting relationships. This event is not to be missed!

Why Attend?

  • Connect with your Peers: C-Level brings together our Colorado tech community for one night of connection, celebration and fun!
  • Optimize your Time – meet top tech executives in one room: More than 50 C-Level Celebrities attend the event to share information about their company and upcoming IT initiatives.
  • Participate in our Celebrity Auction: The C-Level Celebrities’ auction experience packages offer you a chance to continue your conversations with our C-Level Celebrities beyond the event. The funds raised through this auction support CTA and our technology industry year-round.
  • Help your Business Shine: Join the event as a sponsor to align your brand with the best of the best in technology and showcase all that you have to offer in front of Colorado’s top tech leaders and talent.
