tThe Mile High City is the setting for this year’s premier con- ference and expo for those in the OEHS and IH fields. From May 22 to May 27, thousands of industry professionals will gather in Denver, Colo., for AIHce 2010, which will feature an array of educational programming and a first-class lineup of speakers.
Much like AIHce, the eclectic city of Denver offers a variety of activities and attractions. Its chic, urban appeal and
its laid-back, friendly atmosphere make the city ideal for
those who enjoy metropolitan sophistication as well as those
who take pleasure in the outdoors. Countless museums,
galleries, retail shops, cafes, movie theaters and restaurants
serve the needs of those in search of art and culture, while
parks, trails, a walkable downtown area, a relatively mild
climate and close proximity to the Rocky Mountains satisfy
nature and adventure enthusiasts.
Attendees can visit popular attractions such as the Denver
Zoo and Denver Botanical Gardens; the restored Victorian
buildings that house Denver’s array of restaurants, shops
and art galleries in the lower downtown district (known as
LoDo); Colfax Avenue, the longest commercial street in the
United States; and the gold-domed State Capitol building.
AIHce conference goers can also relax in the Colorado hot
springs, partake in water sports, or tour some of Colorado’s
old mining towns and ranches.
Among downtown Denver’s points of interest is the mile-and-a-half long 16th Street pedestrian mall. Extending
through the city center, 16th Street is home to many bars
and brew pubs, restaurants, hotels, a bowling alley and
much more. The city offers a free shuttle that travels the
length of the mall. For more information on where to go and
