Marketing & Tourism

Marketing efforts to attract tourists to the Telluride area have come of age during the past few years, largely because our tax-supported Telluride & Mountain Village Convention and Visitors Bureau (TMVCVB) has been able to mount a substantial promotional program with its greatly increased budget. TMVCVB now has a permanent location on West Colorado Ave, in the new visitor center built in 2003. Furthermore, several of the large fractional ownership projects, such as the Fairmont Heritage Place - Franz Klammer Lodge, have heavily promoted their properties. Some of these projects are linked to international fractional organizations, putting Telluride on the map all over the world.

Telluride Tourism Board

The Telluride Tourism Board maintains the quality of the Telluride region experience for the benefit of the visitor and the economic sustainability of the community. As part of these efforts, the Telluride Tourism Board publishes a variety of community-specific tools to help local organizations plan, forecast and stay in the know.

Business Infrastructure

Telluride's economy continues to thrive. The Town Council recently approved formation of a Business Task Force. The mission of the new task force is to foster a diverse and healthy economic environment within the Town of Telluride.

Telluride has four banks located in town and a branch of Wells Fargo Bank in Mountain Village. In addition, we have three competent title companies and several competitive mortgage companies to make it easy to complete real estate transactions smoothly and painlessly.

The Telluride business community also boasts several accounting firms, excellent graphic and interior designers, renowned architects, and competent building contractors.
