FURTHER INFORMATION

The doors open on Thursday evening March 12, 2020 with registration from 5-6pm and welcome reception from 6-9pm located in the Plaza Exhibitor/Pre-Function area adjacent to the Plaza Ballroom lecture hall.

We are holding our event at the Sheraton Denver Downtown which houses one of the larger conference spaces in the city. As our event continues to grow finding dates and space large enough to accommodate the group becomes challenging. Last year’s event was held at the Gaylord Rockies adjacent to the airport. It was a wonderful resort, but many attendees requested a downtown venue. The Sheraton is undergoing a huge interior renovation and update which should be ready in time for our event. The hotel along with the downtown location will accommodate our group nicely. Coffee, tea and water will be provided during the conference plus vendor food samples along with the many food options around the downtown area. Locals and out-of-town guests will definitely enjoy the experience.

The Whole Foods at Union Station plus many dining options can be found nearby in the updated Union Station and Waterfront sections of town. There are many other downtown dining choices within walking distance from the hotel or via the the 16th Street Free Mall Ride shuttle.
