From the Mile High Business Alliance, Denver:

“We’re thrilled to let you know we’ve opened registration for our 2nd Annual Local Food Summit, taking place on March 3, 2014, back at McNichols Civic Center building in Downtown Denver.  Join us for Denver’s largest gathering of representatives from Colorado’s food economy – connecting growers, retailers, producers, restaurateurs and local eaters!  If your business or organization is directly working on providing food to Coloradans, then come join!

It’s going to be big.  Last year’s first Local Food Summit brought together almost 500 attendees and sold out before the day of the event, so register now and save your place.”
