The conference will be held in the Lory Student Center at Colorado State University. Colorado State University is centrally located in the city of Fort Collins, approximately 60-90 minutes from Denver International Airport.
The closest international airport is Denver International Airport.
Our conference is partnering with local shuttle company Greenride Colorado to provide conference participants with discounted transportation to and from Denver International Airport. A conference participant-specific webpage for reserving shuttles at the discounted rate will be available shortly. Please check back the week of 25 April for further details.
