It’s a little known fact that Park City is not only a hub for great outdoor recreation, but also supports a population of thought leaders and innovators. This mountain community, with a full time population of just 8,000, is the birthplace of thriving start-ups with revenues in the six figures, like Skullcandy and Backcountry.com. The Salt Lake Valley, just 20 minutes from Park City, hosts a burgeoning tech center, and many C-level executives commute from Park City. In fact, the town has built a tech center in anticipation of the growth in this sector. Employing a spin on the motto “Work Hard, Play Harder” the Park City Chamber/Bureau has announced the launch of a new annual event, the Thin Air Innovation Festival, April 6 to 8, 2016. Thrive At The Thin Air Festival – Park City this winter.
This year’s theme is Innovation in Peak Human Performance. Business people from all industries are invited to host their corporate retreats during this festival, to gain inspiration from a line-up of fantastic industry speakers, and then to build camaraderie on the ski slopes. The speaker line-up includes thought leaders like Kevin Plank, CEO and Founder of Under Armour; Shanna Tellerman, Co-founder and CEO of Modsy, and past partner at Google Ventures; and Daniel Chao, Co-founder and CEO of Halo Neuroscience. And to lend further credibility, Fortune Magazine has come to the table as the media partner for this event. The agenda includes moderated panels featuring innovative business leaders, a networking lounge with entertainment and a street dance featuring Thievery Corporation.
This event will create an ideal backdrop for businesses to dig in and solve their business challenges or innovate their next big product offering. Whether it’s a sales meeting, team building event, or innovation camp, this event provides an ideal tie-in to foster creativity and build camaraderie within corporate teams. Or to create a retreat location for like-minded individuals to brainstorm together and then let loose on the ski slopes. Park City provides an ideal setting for like-minded individuals to blend the best elements of work and play.
