We are only days away from the 2012 ASTD (American Society for Training & Development) International Conference & Exposition, which is hosted in EDSI’s hometown of Denver, Colorado from May 6 to 9.
Denver was recently named one of the top convention cities in the United States, and we’re looking forward to welcoming you in person.
Before you pack your bag and head to the airport, here are a few last-minute reminders for the ASTD conference and expo.
1. Plan your schedule.
There are so many interesting speakers, sessions and workshops that your only challenge will be prioritizing and organizing your schedule. Unsure of where to go or what events you should put on your calendar? Explore tools to help you customize your training and development experience and download the free conference app to stay updated on news and events while on the go.
2. Stop by the EDSI booth
We will be at Booth 305 (check out a map here) at the ASTD conference, so drop by and say “hello” and find out about the iPad we will be giving away. Ask us about our training and development courses and resources or get the inside scoop on the best places to go in Denver for food, drinks, entertainment and culture.
3. Enjoy the city of Denver.
Enjoy Denver’s Best Shopping Spots
Just two blocks from the convention center, you’ll find the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. This promenade runs through the center of Downtown and is lined with outdoor cafes, shops, restaurants and retail stores. Take a stroll anytime, and you could run across outdoor events and music. The 16th Street Pedestrian Mall is one of the best ways to enjoy Denver!
How about Catching a Game or Seeing a Play?
Want to catch a Colorado Rockies game while you’re here? The Rockies play the Braves on Sunday (May 6) at 1:00 pm. How about seeing a play or some live music? Check the schedule for the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, which is right next door to the hotel. Hear Ring of Fire, a live concert of Johnny Cash’s music, watch the play, Wicked and more.
See you at the ASTD conference next week!
