About Realize Colorado

Realize Colorado was born in June 2011 when owner Deana Mitchell left the hospitality world after 25 years. The company has grown exponentially in the first years and we are proud to represent the wonderful state of Colorado (we think one of the most beautiful places on earth)! No matter what type of event, we can assist you every step of the way. From planning to on-site logistics, we can help Realize your vision! Our business is to make you look like a rock star in your boss' eye.

What Makes Us Unique

Our team has a diverse background and covers every aspect of the hospitality industry as well as the design field. We are all passionate about what we do and where we live. Most of us have been a guide of some kind, worked at a local hotel / resort and have been connected with events in some capacity as well. Our goal is to create an unmatched experience for you and your guests from start to finish!
