Additional Region 7 Fall Conference Details

Posted By Administration, Thursday, October 19, 2017

Parking & Transportation info

Denver International Airport is about 25 miles from the hotel. Taxis, Uber, and Lyfft tend to be quite expensive. A lower cost option is to take the A Line train to the 40th and Colorado Station and then a Uber or Lyft ride from there. The A line is accessible from the rail station that is part of the airport.

Garage parking is available at the Holiday Inn, Cherry Creek.  The hotel will be operating shuttles to and from CableLand, which is about three blocks from the hotel. The shuttle schedule will be available in the Lobby of the hotel. Parking at CableLand is limited and we ask that only local attendees park there.

Locations and times of the conference registration desk

Registration opens Wednesday at noon and Thursday at 8 a.m. The main registration desk will be at CableLand only on Wednesday for the preconference. An information point will be available at the Holiday Inn, Cherry Creek.

Final Schedule

Final Conference Schedule is available here:

Dress Code

Dress code is casual, which is the norm for Denver and Colorado. Be sure to bring a warm jacket for the cool evenings. Given that Denver hosts the National Western Stock Show in January, western attire is also certainly acceptable. Hiking boots are also an option for those wishing to enjoy the Colorado Rockies after the conference.

Weather / High Altitude advice

October is typically a dry month in Denver. Temperatures are forecast to be in moderate during the day (65F / 18C)  and dropping at night (40F / 4C). Denver is called the Mie High City because of its altitude of 5,280 feet above sea level. At this altitude the air is thinner with about 17% less oxygen than at sea level. Denver is also very dry with average humidity forecast to be about 25%. Altitude and dryness means that it is very important to drink water throughout the day and avoid over imbibing in dehydrating drinks such as coffee, tea, and alcohol. Be sure to enjoy the award-winning Denver water provided at the event venues.
