49th Annual Convention


ABAI is committed to providing a welcoming, accessible environment for all attendees. If you require an accommodation for a disability, please contact us at Our team will write back to confirm, and the same email address may be used for additional questions or follow-up, and on-site support. We will make every effort to accommodate all requests, within the logistical limits of our venues.


Please see the information and resources below for mobility, seating, restrooms, and rooms for sensory and religious supports. Information about childcare and the nursing room is available here


Getting Around

ABAI makes full use of the hotel and center facilities, and events are spread out. There are many places to sit and rest in the hallways, in large corridors outside the ballrooms, near the session rooms, and in the lobbies. If you use mobility aids, we recommend bringing them or arranging for a rental ahead of time. View the Colorado Convention Center's fully interactive map here. Please know that the map is illustrative and the rooms and/or seating may be arranged differently for our event.

Other Supports

ABAI has reserved two rooms in the Colorado Convention Center. Room 607 is designated to serve as a quiet, sensory-break room and room 204 is designated for meditation or prayer. Of course, individuals may access the nearest of the two rooms based on immediate needs; though we ask you also consider the designations of each room and other attendees' needs when using the rooms. Both rooms remained unlocked and independently accessible during normal conference hours (the same operating hours as the event registration desks). Please see ABAI staff at the registration desk for additional assistance.
