49th Annual Convention

Pre-convention workshops: Thursday, May 25–Friday, May 26

Convention: Saturday, May 27–Monday, May 29

Colorado Convention Center 


We are pleased to announce our return to Denver for the 49th Annual Convention! The event will once again be at the Colorado Convention Center, this time with sessions held in the front of the building, making it easy for attendees to get around.

 

Ranked as the fourth most walkable downtown in the nation, the Colorado Convention Center in Denver is two blocks from the 16th Street Mall, a 1.6-mile-long pedestrian promenade lined with outdoor cafes, restaurants, and shops. Free shuttle buses leave each end as often as every 90 seconds. Denver’s downtown has over 300 restaurants, three new art museums, a U.S. Mint facility, and the nation's second-largest performing arts center. With over 200 parks, Denver also has the largest city park system in the nation.

 

The Denver International Airport (DEN) has more than 1,700 daily flights, including non-stops to more than 150 destinations worldwide. DEN is approximately 25 miles from downtown, equivalent to a 30-minute taxi ride. A light rail, the A Line, also runs between the airport and Union Station in the downtown area (the trip takes approximately 75 minutes).
