What is included?

The Roundtable at Vail is an invitation-only free event for representatives of INMA’s community of news media companies. The event includes Roundtable sessions, the Wednesday welcome reception, lunches and breaks, and the Friday evening dinner. The pre-Roundtable hike and golf outing are free.

Hotel rooms, breakfasts, parking, and transportation should be paid separately.

What can my spouse/partner attend?

Spouses and partners are welcome to attend the Wednesday evening welcome reception, Thursday's activity, and Friday evening small-group dinners, as well as the Wednesday morning optional hike and golf outing. Please let INMA know in advance your plans.

About the golf outing

To experience the ego boost of playing golf at 7,000+ feet, plan on joining peers for an outing at Eagle Ranch Golf Club Wednesday morning, August 21. The majestic Colorado Rocky Mountains provide a spectacular setting for this Arnold Palmer Signature Design Course. We will depart the Sonnenalp Hotel at 7:00 a.m. Tee times will start at 8:30 a.m. Plan to arrive the evening of Tuesday, August 20, to join the golf outing.

About the hike

For those who prefer to experience hiking at altitude, plan to join your peers on a group hike Wednesday morning. We will conduct three hikes: one moderate, one intermedia, and one more challenging. The tours will depart the Sonnenalp lobby at 9:00 a.m. Please allot three hours for this experience, and please pack hiking shoes. This is a free activity.

What will the weather be like?

Expect summer temperatures of between 50°F at night and 80°F during the day (10°C to 27°C). While Vail summers are not humid, a sunny day can make things warm — so dress for these extremes. Bring sunscreen and a hat.

Cancellations and substitutions

Because this is an invitation-only event, there are no invitation transfers. If there is a cancellation, then waiting list participants from other companies will be added to the attendee list.
