  Case Studies - Vail Presents

Event: Vail Presents…All Summer Long! Concert Series

Location: Vail, Colorado, at various outdoor public spaces

Client: Town of Vail, Colorado

Client Objectives

  • Animate Vail during 33 days in summer by sponsoring free public entertainment.
  • Attract new visitors to Vail from Colorado’s Front Range.
  • Create more traffic to Vail restaurants and retail businesses in summer.

Skyline Recommendations

  • Create an event theme that supported the image of Vail as a fun and lively destination.
  • Block-book entertainers for greater cost-effectiveness and better programming.
  • Allocate a portion of the project budget to house the entertainers in Vail over each 3-day weekend in order to lower artists’ fees and bring a portion of the project budget back to the sponsoring community.
  • Program a broad variety of performance genres including all types of music, circus arts such as juggling and stilt walking, children’s entertainers and more.
  • Present performers during the lunch hours and in the early evening to have the greatest impact.
