Top 10 Highlights of 2014



Happy 2015! Hopefully it is off to a great start for you. This past year has flown by and we don’t know about you, but 2014 brought us much happiness and success. To celebrate this, we are highlighting the top moments of 2014 for KD Kanopy. 2014 left some big shoes to fill, but we have a feeling  2015 has the potential to be even better!

1. Charity Golf Tournament for Kids Mobility Network

We hold our KD Cares for Kids Charity Golf Tournament every year, and every year is a success. 2014 was no exception! We raised over $13,400 for Kids Mobility Network and had a blast while doing so. No kid should be without proper care, and we are blessed to be in a position to help. Read here for more details!

Setup Video: KDStarshade 400 & 800

2. Canopy Setup Videos

Our canopies are so easy to setup and tear down, you only need two people. It’s true! We proved ourselves with a series of video’s showing just how to setup a KD Kanopy. They are durable and fun too! Check out the videos here and here.

3. Q&A with Mary of KD Kanopy

Our Q&A Segment with the newest member of our team, Mary, was a hit! We are so happy she has joined the team and now we can share some reasons why that is with you. To find out more about Mary and a little about working at KD Kanopy, check out the full article here.

4. Staff Q&A

Mary wasn’t the only KD Kanoper we interviewed. Towards the later portion of 2014 we started to interview our staff and share it with you all. Needless to say, not only have they been successful posts, they have been a blast to read and write! From the President of KD Kanopy, Matt Kayser, to VP of Sales and Marketing Ian McIntosh, we love giving our clients and the public a chance to know us better. Get to know us and our staff better here.

5. Client Testimonials

2014 brought some amazing new clients as well as deeper bonds with existing ones. We value customer service and nothing makes us happier than when our hard work pays off and we get raving reviews from our clients. After all, we wouldn’t be around without them! Here is one from Chad Melis at Oskar Blues, “We’ve been using KD Kanopy tents for ten years at a ton of events through the Colorado sun, wind, rain & snow and these babies hold up.” Want more testimonials ?

6. Caught off Guard at Sports Authority Field at Mile High

This was such a fun one to make! Carri Wilbanks went around asking Bronco fans some bogus questions and their answers were priceless. We hope you enjoy watching the video as much as we enjoyed filming it! Check it out here. Hopefully there will be more of the “Caught Off Guard” series in our future.

7. IFA Tradeshow

KD Kanopy was among 300 businesses that headed down to New Orleans for the International Franchise Association’s Convention. KD Kanopy offers amazing discounts for franchises and it was so much fun getting to know everyone! To see some of the franchises we work with click here.

8. Launch of New Website

We launched a new website in 2014, and she’s a beauty. Not only that, the functionality is much better than the old site and that helps our customers navigate the site with ease. Whether browsing or ready to design and order a custom canopy, our new site makes it fun and easy. It’s the start of the show! Check it out.

Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater

9. Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater Renovation

Fiddler’s green underwent a major renovation in 2014, and we were part of it! You can find our canopies throughout the venue and heavily in the VIP area. Fiddlers Green has never looked better and we are so glad we got to be apart of it! Want to know more? Click here.

10. The EFI VUTEk GS5000r Digital Printer
