This year, the conference will be held in the heart of Denver, with conference sessions at the Hyatt Regency Denver and at the Denver Convention Center across the street. We hold room blocks at three hotels, all within a three block area and easily accessible to one another.

Room blocks are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and we anticipate all of the discounted rooms to fill well in advance of the conference. Full blocks may have space available on shoulder nights or due to cancelations, but officially all blocks listed as full have no more rooms available.
