The Colorado Tourism Office (CTO) was created in 2000 to promote Colorado as a tourism destination. A board of directors oversees the CTO and is comprised of 15 individuals from hotel, restaurant, attraction and other tourism-related businesses as well as Colorado legislators. Colorado.com is the official tourism website for the State of Colorado. The CTO staff and its board of directors oversee the implementation of domestic and international marketing, public relations, travel resources, research and several other Colorado tourism programs. One of the major initiatives of the Colorado Tourism Office is to raise awareness of and appreciation for Colorado’s heritage and agri-tourism tourism assets. Since the inception of the Heritage Tourism Program, total funding has exceeded $1.8 million from a variety of partners in addition to the Colorado Tourism Office.
The Colorado Tourism Office was recently named "Best US State Tourism Bureau" at the annual Travvy Awards, presented by travAlliancemedia.
