Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senators John Hickenlooper and Michael Bennet celebrated news that Denver has been chosen to host the inaugural Cities Summit of the Americas in 2023. City, state, and municipal leaders from throughout the Western Hemisphere will convene in Colorado to strengthen relationships with Central and South America and build new economic opportunities.
“Denver is an excellent choice for the first-ever Cities Summit of the Americas,” said Hickenlooper. “As a former Mayor, I know that collaboration at the local level is crucial to solving our toughest problems. We can’t wait to showcase Colorado’s diversity and powerhouse economy on the international stage.”
“Colorado is the perfect location to host the inaugural Cities Summit of America. From the Front Range to the West Slope to the Eastern Plains, our cities are leaders in building consensus to tackle our country’s greatest challenges,” said Bennet. “We are grateful for the opportunity to host this event and are excited to welcome attendees to Denver next year.”
Hickenlooper and Bennet supported Colorado’s bid to host the 2022 Summit of the Americas, which is currently taking place in Los Angeles. The Cities Summit will build on commitments made this week and further local collaboration.
