Edward A. Robinson
Hall Of Fame Inductee — 2001
Edward A. Robinson is the longest serving active member on the Denver Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau Board of Directors. He was one of the first Denver businessmen to realize the strong connection between tourism and all industries in Colorado. “When tourism does well, we have more people in the hotels and our out-of-town guests drink milk and eat dairy products too,” he says.
Realizing the importance of tourism to Denver’s overall economy, Ed Robinson has been a strong supporter of the industry throughout his career. He served as the chairman of the Bureau and has been a member and a chair of many tourism committees. Equaling his participation with the Bureau has been his devotion to one of Denver’s top tourist attractions, the Denver Zoo. He served on the Zoo’s Board of Trustees since 1987 and was their President in 1994, 1995 and 1996.
In 1993, Ed Robinson was inducted into the Colorado Restaurant Association Food Service Hall of Fame and in 2000 into the Colorado Business Hall of Fame.
He is one of the most beloved citizens of Denver and one of the most honored in the community.
