- I had the pleasure of working with CSU Conference Services on a CSU sponsored natural gas symposium in October 2011. They were part of a larger team made up of wonderfully skilled CSU departments. I have described them to others as professional, problem-solvers, patient, credible, easy to work with and who thought of details the rest of us hadn’t. I would recommend them to anyone who is planning a conference, meeting or a symposium in the future.
Maury Dobbie, Assistant Director, CSU Center for the New Energy Economy
- Conference Services helped us pull together a large conference for 200 in five weeks. There is no way we could have done it without them. We had an extremely successful event because Conference Services handled all of the venue details leading up to and on the day of the event. We look forward to working with them again soon!

- "Going out West is a bid treat, so we wanted mountains proximity with a contained campus. We get that at Fort Collins, so we go back. Unlike colleges sprinkled through a city, CSU has a well laid out campus in a discrete area with short walking distances, which would also be great for seniors. And it has a very good conference planning staff."
Christine Douglas, Coordinator of Youth/Young Adult Ministry
- "We meet at universities around the country, but few have the meeting facilities and amenities we require. CSU is very organized and enormously helpful, and offers the numerous classrooms we need for workshops in the afternoon and evenings."
