How to get free tickets




C-Level @ A Mile High is the Colorado Technology Association’s largest fundraiser, packed with a C-level celeb auction, silent auction and live auction to help carry out its mission of fueling Colorado’s economy through technology. It’s the perfect opportunity to build relationships with peers, win business and be introduced to tech companies and influential IT leaders in a setting unlike any other within Colorado.


Do business with the best in Colorado and support the tech community all in one night. More than 60 C-level celebrities, all executives, will be available to chat about business—or otherwise—with service providers and others looking to work with the biggest and strongest tech companies in Colorado. Ambassadors for each celebrity will keep the conversations moving to ensure everyone who wants time with the celeb gets it.

As the night progresses, providers interested in taking conversations to the next level can bid on that celebrity’s experience package and watch the results come in live via a bidding app. The packages may include a golf outing, skiing in the Rockies, exclusive dinners with several top executives at the celeb’s company, Broncos club seats and anything else our celebs can dream up. You’ll also have the opportunity to bid on an ever-growing list of incredible silent auction items donated from the tech community and wrap the night with a live auction of impressive experiences too big for the celeb and silent auctions.

The best part? All of the proceeds will help the Colorado Technology Association continue its mission of fueling Colorado’s tech economy.
