Walking Conferences

What Are They?

Walking conferences are a cool way for attendees to meet, stroll and explore Boulder without the need for group transportation. Boulder’s compact geography and historic downtown core make it a highly walkable city.

For meeting planners, this means that instead of centralizing all your efforts at one property, you can give your attendees a fresh experience at a network of hotels, meeting venues, restaurants, breweries, shops, theaters and even outdoor locales — all within close walking distance of one another.

Past meeting planners have received rave reviews from attendees for the innovative walking conference approach, encouraging delegates to walk (or use public B-Cycle bike kiosks) to get around to unique venues like the historic Boulder Theater and the arts-focused Rembrandt Yard, James Beard award-winning restaurants, outdoor courtyards — and even food trucks. 

Check out how close Boulder's hotels and venues are to the walkable downtown:
