Last week we had the opportunity to return to a favorite city to hold events – Denver, Colorado. This is our third trip there in the past year and we’ll be headed back in May 2010 for a non-profit client’s annual conference that has grown from 175 to 250 attendees in the last three years. Here are some of the latest happenings there to affect a Denver conference:
2009 deals: hotels are booking 2010 like crazy but this year still has plenty of availability.
$100 million goes a long way: the downtown Sheraton (previously Adam’s Mark) has undergone some incredible changes and many are still to come, including a 6,000 sq. ft. fitness center.
Closures: Sadly, we learned that our dine-around won’t include Alto, a wonderful Larimer Square restaurant that recently shuttered its doors.
It was great to experience old favorites, like the free 16th Street Shuttle and Enstrom’s Almond Toffee, and take up a friend on some recommendations: 8 Rivers on Blake Street and a Max Evans at the Celtic, where all the decor – from the stained glass to the street signs – comes from Ireland.
We’ll be back before the event next year so stay tuned for more Denver conference developments!
