Colorado Convention Center

Map & Directions 700 14th St.
Denver, CO 80202


Westword's Description

Every major city needs a good convention center, and the Colorado Convention Center certainly does the trick for this metropolis. The center has 63 meeting rooms, two giant ballrooms, a 5,000-seat theater and a big blue bear (otherwise known as “I See What You Mean,” by Lawrence Argent) gazing through the floor-to-ceiling windows off 14th Street; it hosts everything from all-night raves to business conventions within its walls. It’s conveniently located next to the Denver Performing Arts Complex, within walking distance of many of the city’s best hotels and restaurants, and just a couple of blocks from the 16th Street Mall. And although it’s not the newest convention center in the country (it was finished in 1990), it was the first event and conference center in the world to be certified to a new international sustainability standard in 2012. Clearly, the facility is way ahead of its time.

    Organizers claim to have sold 11,000 tickets. To whom I don't know. My friends who flock to Starfest and Mile High Con have no interest in this event. A lame collection of "stars", the best of whom have pulled out, supposedly due to "conflicts" but more likely due to a failure on the part of promoters to meet financial guarantees. Virtually no seminars or workshops, this is... More >>

    So many happy people in one place. Could it be the beer?

    "Every year the Colorado Convention Center hosts a gem and mineral show. Also, they use the word “show” very loosely in Colorado." - Conan O'Brien

    Beware the Big Big Bear!

    The Blue Bear, installed in 2005, is a real standout in Denver. The playful 40-foot sculpture is the creation of local artist, Lawrence Argent.
