A beautiful, bustling metropolis set against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is widely recognized for its exceptional balance of a thriving economy, healthy lifestyle and urban as well as natural amenities. Denver's central U.S. location on the 105th meridian at the midpoint between Tokyo and Frankfurt makes it a strategic choice for conducting international business. With its unique Mountain Time zone location, Denver is the largest U.S. city offering one-bounce satellite uplinks to world satellite networks and real-time connections to six continents in one business day. With appealing business opportunities for both corporate employees as well as entrepreneurs, award-winning transit and mobility, and excellence in education, Denver is one of America's most livable cities. Among other accolades, it has been ranked the best American city to do business (Forbes, 2015); the fourth healthiest American city (American Fitness Index, 2014); and the city with the fourth highest percentage of young and educated residents in the country (New York Times, 2014). As a destination that simply "has it all," Denver more than ever is a top choice to live, work, and enjoy life. 


The city is served by Denver International Airport (DIA), the 19th-busiest airport in the world and the sixth-busiest in the United States. With more than 54 million passengers traveling through the airport each year, DIA is one of the busiest hubs in the world's largest aviation market. The airport is the primary economic engine for the state of Colorado, generating more than $26 billion for the region annually, and is a significant partner in promoting Denver as a global tourism and business destination. It is the third largest domestic network in the U.S. with more than 150 destinations served nonstop, and offers international service to 20 destinations in 8 countries. As the hub that connects the Rocky Mountain region to the world, DIA has seen a 33% increase in international traffic since 2010 and continues to expand international air service.
