2017 Communications Industry Executive Forum

August 23-25, 2017
The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, Colorado

An Outstanding Program

CoBank’s 2017 Communications Industry Executive Forum will bring together some of the nation’s leading experts on regulation, geopolitical risks, technology trends, the economy and politics.

Through a series of thought-provoking and informative sessions, the leaders of America’s rural communications providers will gain valuable knowledge, insight and information they can use in their business and personal lives. The conference will also offer attendees the opportunity to network with industry peers and enjoy golf and other activities in a world-class venue.

New Addition to the Program

Thursday’s reception and dinner will be hosted at The Broadmoor, Seven Falls. Located less than one mile from The Broadmoor, Seven Falls is one of the most captivating natural wonders. This magnificent series of waterfalls is situated in a 1,250-foot-wall box canyon between the towering Pillars of Hercules. Shuttles will be running continuously between the West Building and Seven Falls, commencing at 5:50 p.m. and continuing through the duration of the program. The last shuttle will depart from Seven Falls at 9:30 p.m. Please dress comfortably for walking as there are opportunities to hike up parts of the Falls for additional views. Jeans and tennis shoes are appropriate. Please be sure to bring a jacket, as it can get cool in the mountains, even in summer.
