Getting There

This year’s Collaboration Fest will be taking place at the Hyatt Regency Denver At Colorado Convention Center (not the Hyatt Grand, which is a few blocks away) located at 650 15th St, Denver, CO 80202. Enter the venue through either of the two main doors and head towards the escalator located outside of the Starbucks in the lobby. The event will take place in the Centennial Ballroom on the second floor.

Let’s face it… you’re going to want to have a good time at this year’s Collaboration Fest. There is a serious lack of parking near the venue, therefore we recommend using Lyft to reach the venue. Stay tuned for a discount code from our partners at Lyft to enjoy a discounted ride to the event!

Public Transportation:
Feel free to take the RTD light rail to the 16th & California station, from there it will be just a 3 minute walk. Once at the station, walk with traffic down California street directly to 15th street. You’ll see The Hyatt Regency on the south corner at the intersection of 15th and California. Don’t hesitate to use the RTD Schedule Finder to plan your route.
