Last Minute Reminders

Below are some last minute reminders and information about the AAPM 59th Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Denver, CO.

WEATHER

In July the average high temperature in Denver DC is 31°C / 88°F. The average low temperature is 13°C / 56°F. Denver is 5,130 feet above sea level. Adjustment to a major change in altitude can take several days. To help make your stay more comfortable, drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids. Humidity will be about 50% so you will dry out quickly. You may wish to bring a reusable water bottle. Water stations are available in the Colorado Convention Center.

DRESS CODE

Dress is business casual.

The A-Line Rail Service from Denver International Airport

At a cost of $9 each way, the A Line connects travelers to Union Station in the heart of downtown Denver. From Union Station, take the free 16th Street Mall shuttle (MallRide) which provides access to most downtown hotels. More information »

NIGHT OUT – Denver Art Museum

Tuesday 6:30pm - 10:00pm
100 W. 14th Avenue Pkwy, Denver
View the Night Out Flyer »

Taking a lesson from the successful format of the 2016 Night Out, the 2017 Night Out will not be a dinner event. Instead, you are encouraged to meet your colleagues at the venue for light snacks and then make your way to a local restaurant for dinner. Or, dine first and make your way to the event for a bite of something sweet at the end of the evening!

AAPM will take over the entire Denver Art Museum, with 70,000 works of art divided between 9 permanent collections including American Indian, Asian, European and American, modern and contemporary, pre-Columbian, Spanish Colonial, textile, and western American art. For those who like to dance, head to Ponti Hall to hear classic rock covers by the Kory Brunson Band.

Again, you will be disappointed if you come to the Night Out expecting a meal. We have compiled a list of restaurants and encourage you to either make reservations on your own, or with help from the restaurant desk at the Convention Center.

Buses will depart from 14th and Welton Street and run continuously between the Convention Center and the Denver Art Museum. If you decide to walk (.8 mile from the Convention Center), look for guides along your way. You will be directed toward the North Building. Don’t forget your ticket, required for entrance to the museum. This ticket is included in some registration categories. Tickets may also be purchased on-site at the AAPM registration desk

Please note: Each adult Night Out ticket will include 1 drink ticket, good for beer or a glass of wine. Once your ticket is used, cash will be accepted. Non-alcoholic drinks will not require a ticket.

LUNCH VOUCHERS – GOOD ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY

All scientific registrants will receive (2) lunch vouchers redeemable for lunch in the exhibit hall. One voucher is good for Monday, and one for Tuesday between 12:15pm-1:45pm. Pick up a lunch in one of the 2 designated areas in the exhibit hall.

COMPANIONS’ WELCOME CENTER

Colorado Convention Center, Room 202
Sunday - Wednesday 8:00am - 5:00pm
Thursday 8:00am - 11:00am

Please note: Children 11 and under will not be allowed in the Exhibit Hall or in session rooms.


Safe travels to Denver!
