National Western Complex becomes Center

By Larry Dreiling

The National Western Association, which runs Denver’s National Western Stock Show, has announced a new name and vision statement for its facilities during a recent member meeting.

“The National Western Center will be the new center for western heritage in the United States, bringing together education, agriculture, and entertainment together in one location through strong partnerships that will be a catalyst for economic development, job creation, and neighborhood revitalization,” stated the new vision statement, announced by National Western President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Andrews.

In July 2013, the National Western Stock Show announced a partnership with Colorado State University, the city and county of Denver, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and History Colorado that would turn its facility into a year-round destination. NWSS reconfirmed its commitment to creating a new vision for the next 100 years and its mission to develop a strong sustainable program in the city of Denver.

“Credit a renewed energy about the National Western from Mayor Michael Hancock,” Andrews said for the breadth and depth of partners interested in developing a new vision for the center within the limits of the city and county of Denver.
