Conference details

Next: AIGA Design Conference was held at the Colorado Convention Center [700 14th Street, Denver, CO, 80202]. This brand new space boasts both a user friendly and aesthetically focused design. Conveniently located, attendees had easy access to the Rocky Mountains while the restaurants and entertainment of downtown were just mere steps away.

About Denver

Searching for what lies ahead in uncharted territory takes courage. The early pioneers of the west possessed that great vision and boundless spirit. Today, the quest for what is next in design follows in those footsteps and echoes that vision. Just as Denver takes its place among the country’s most cosmopolitan and sustainable cities, AIGA explores the possibilities of what’s “Next” in this city of dreams.

Uniquely framed by the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains, Denver is the site of historical attractions such as the Buffalo Bill Museum and modern architectural delights like the Daniel Libeskind-designed extension to the Denver Art Museum, home of the AIGA National Design Archives. From the Red Rocks Ampitheater to the future Museum of Contemporary Art, designed by architect David Adjaye, Denver is the ideal locale to embrace the past and look forward to the future.
