MapQuest hit the streets over lunch today along downtown Denver’s 16th Street pedestrian mall to celebrate its 15th anniversary. Our street team, outfitted in MapQuest gear, spread good cheer and provided a free service to people in need of directions. Of course, we were also dishing out free MapQuest giveaways from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. The anniversary celebrations continued downtown in LoDo (Lower Downtown) in MapQuest’s new headquarter office. Earlier this morning, we stopped by Denver media offices to share some “Questi Cakes,” the preferred breakfast of MapQuest employees. Crews took a break and enjoyed some the treats from local bakery/dessert shop, Happy Cakes.
Tonight more than 240 guests will arrive at MapQuest’s new headquarters for an event including a press conference with AOL’s Huffington Media Post Group key executives Arianna Huffington and Jon Brod. Joining them will be some of Denver’s key business elite and local influencers including Denver Mayor Bill Vidal. Following the press conference, guests will able to explore the new space, network and relax with a MapQuest branded beverage.
