Travel & Tourism Information

Denver is located in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The Denver downtown district (where the conference hotel is located) is immediately east of the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River, approximately 12 mi (19 km) east of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Denver is named after James W. Denver, a governor of the Kansas Territory. It is nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.344 meters) above sea level. The 105th meridian west of Greenwich, the longitudinal reference for the Mountain Time Zone, passes directly through Denver Union Station. As of the 2020 U.S. Census, the city of Denver had a population of 715,522, a 19.2% increase over its 2010 population.

Denver has wonderful dining options and a plethora of things to do if you feel the need to relax or recreate during the conference. You can find more information about where to eat, relax, and recreate at Denver.org.

This year’s conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, located at 1750 Welton Street, Denver, Colorado, United States, 80202.

Denver International Airport is located approximately 25 miles from downtown Denver.

For conference participants who would prefer not to take a taxi or an Uber from the airport to the conference hotel, am alternative is to take Denver Airport Rail.
