Transportation

Denver is conveniently located off Interstates I-70, I-76 and I-25 with easy access to Golden (30 minutes/18 miles), Boulder (45 minutes/30 miles), Ft. Collins (1¼ hours/65 miles), Colorado Springs (1½ hours/70 miles) and Vail (2 hours/100 miles).   

Arriving By Air: Make travel arrangements to the Denver International Airport (DIA), 8500 Pena Blvd., Denver, Colorado.  The airport is 25 miles northeast of downtown Denver and it is approximately 30 minutes by car to the Conference hotel.

The most cost-effective way to get from DIA to the Conference hotel and downtown Denver is via light rail.  Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD) offers a direct line between DIA and Union Station in the heart of downtown (A-line, $10.50 each way).  After arriving at Union Station, passengers headed to the Conference hotel should transfer to the free Mall Ride bus and proceed along the 16th Street pedestrian mall, exiting the bus at Court Place.  The Conference venue, the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, is located at 1550 Court Place – right at the corner of Court Place and 16th Street. 

Shuttle services (Super Shuttle, $31+/person) and taxis ($65+/trip) are also convenient ways to get to Denver area hotels from DIA.  In addition, other vehicle transportation services such as Uber and Lyft are very popular for getting around the Denver Metro Area.  

Arriving By Car:  For driving directions, use google maps, etc. to travel to 1550 Court Place, Denver, Colorado.

Arriving By Train: The California Zephyr train line runs daily between Chicago and San Francisco, with an Amtrak Station stop at Union Station in downtown Denver.  Other stops on this line include Omaha, Salt Lake City and Reno.

Getting Around Denver: Public transportation options abound in the Denver Metro Area.  The Conference hotel is located right on the 16th Street pedestrian mall, which offers a free Mall Ride bus.  A great way to explore beyond 16th Street is via highly accessible bike and electric scooter rentals. There are a number of companies offering this service, with prices starting at free 30-minute rentals, and bikes and scooters can be found all over Denver. Explore your options with Denver B-cycle, Lyft, and Lime.  

Twelve RTD light rail lines and a variety of bus routes can help you get farther afield. Nearby cities of Golden (W-line) and Boulder (Flatiron Flyer – FF-line) can both be accessed via light rail, at a cost of $3.00-$5.25 each way. For about the same cost, a 45- to 60-minute RTD bus ride can get you up into the historic Rocky Mountain foothills town of Evergreen. 

Host City Information and Highlights

Established in 1858, Denver’s diverse population of over 700,000 makes it one of the top 20 largest cities in the U.S.  While expansive, the city is also incredibly walkable, accessible via public transport and bike-friendly.  Denver is located in the high rolling plains, 12 miles east of the Rocky Mountain foothills.  The “Mile High City” is truly situated exactly one mile above sea level (5280’ = step number 13 at the State Capitol) and the mountain peaks you can see to the west rise to over 14,000’ (“fourteeners”).  With 300 days of sunshine each year, a culinary, cultural and arts scene that can hold its own, over 150 breweries and tap rooms pouring over 200 local beers (not to mention a growing number of local distilleries and wineries), and one of the most extensive city park systems in the country, Denver has something for everyone.  Learn more at Visit Denver’s website.  Nearby attractions include:
