Denver is the capital and most populous municipality in Colorado. Located in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.3 meters) above sea level. Denver is ranked as a Beta-world city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network; and with an estimated population of 704,621 in 2017, Denver is the 19th-most populous U.S. city.

Riders pay fares of $7, $9 or $11, depending on location, and drivers assist with luggage. All RTD services, maps, routes, park-n-Rides and fares are detailed on RTD's website.
Negotiated hotel rates benefit you and ASME. In order to secure meeting rooms spaceS, ASME signs a contract with the host city guaranteeing a specified number of hotel rooms booked by our conference attendees – called a room block. As the number of rooms in the room block increases, costs to ASME decrease, which we are able to pass along to our conference attendees in the form of lower registration prices.
If attendees stay in the host hotel, ASME fulfills its contractual obligation with the hotel. If attendees stay in other hotels, ASME faces the possibility that its room block will not be met, forcing it to pay severe penalties, which can run into tens of thousands of dollars.
