Join us in celebrating 75 Years of Serving the Metalworking and Used Capital Equipment Industries at the MDNA Convention & Business Meetings in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

This year’s convention has something for everyone and includes spectacular social, networking, entertaining and educational events throughout.

On Thursday the convention starts with a sumptuous “Welcome Lunch”. It will be followed by a challenging yet entertaining Kickoff Event that is sure to be fun for all attendees, spouses and even the youngest in attendance. Our Thursday opening night “Welcome Party” will be held in the Broadmoor's majestic Cheyenne Mountain Lodge, located on the slopes of the Rockies high above the hotel itself. With spectacular views of the mountains and Colorado Springs, it is the perfect venue to say “Hi” to friends. Attendees will enjoy a cocktail reception on the deck designed around an outdoor fireplace. Then the authentic lodge will be the setting for a buffet dinner and lively entertainment.

Programming at this year’s convention is sure to stimulate, educate and enhance your business knowledge. It will include a presentation on Fraud and International Business from the FBI. Guest Speaker Dave Sherman, will present a program on Lifecycle Marketing and the tools every owner and salesman should know to stay competitive and viable in today’s ever-changing business world. AMEA will conduct one of their famously fun educational valuation seminars and the MDNA Webinar Team will put on a live “Lunch and Learn” Webinar that will round out the programming.

This year’s “Spouse Event” features a tour of the Garden of the Gods, a national landmark. Pre-registered spouses will experience dramatic views of 300 foot towering sandstone rock formations against a backdrop of snow-capped Pikes Peak and brilliant blue skies. They will then visit historic downtown Manitou Springs. This artists' enclave is a treasure trove of art galleries and boutique shops. These activities will culminate with a wonderful lunch, where they will enjoy their tradition of visiting with old friends and meeting new friends.

An optional golf tournament on Friday afternoon at the Broadmoor’s Champion West Course, skirting the base of the Rocky Mountains, will be a popular and competitive event.

On Friday evening the choice is yours. You can come PLAY at our private MDNA party (optional) in one of the Broadmoor’s most unique and fun rooms, appropriately called “PLAY”. Choose your partners and your opponents for bowling, billiards, foosball or shuffle board. Or, if your favorite game is socializing, you can PLAY at chatting and enjoying an open bar and the Broadmoor's casual cuisine. “PLAY” is designed as a luxury club room and is the perfect venue to network with your MDNA friends in an environment that only the Broadmoor can offer. Or, if you choose take advantage of all that Colorado Springs and the Broadmoor have to offer including numerous restaurants, cafes and lounges on property.

Saturday night following a cocktail reception in the elegant Pompeian Room, the Broadmoor's world famous chefs will treat you to a culinary experience to remember at the annual President's Banquet. Then dance the night away to a fabulous live band as our 75th Annual Convention comes to a close.
