Convention

AWSM is excited to announce its return to the Mile High City! The organization’s 2022 convention – set for August 4-7 – will be at The Curtis hotel in the heart of downtown Denver.

As previously announced, AWSM’s 2021 convention will be held June 3-6 at The Fairmont hotel in downtown Dallas. Early registration for that meeting opens March 31, 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 convention.

The fun and trendy Curtis, operated by Hilton, is unlike any other hotel with a pop-culture theme running throughout the property. #AWSM2022 attendees will enjoy a rate of $159/night for singles and doubles during the program. Additional adult occupants in a guest room are subject to a fee. The rate is good three days before and after the convention, based on availability, and includes complimentary internet. Self-parking is available for a discounted rate of $30/night.

Early registration will open in mid-April with reduced registration prices for members only. General registration will follow in early May. Pricing details and key dates will be available in 2021.

Denver International Airport (DEN) offers nonstop service to more than 180 U.S. cities and is served by 23 airlines including Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit, Sun Country and United. Travelers can take the airport rail to Denver Union Station for $10.50 each way. Union Station is a half-mile from The Curtis. A taxi from the airport to downtown runs $55. Travel time is approximately 30 minutes.

Denver was selected by AWSM because of its strong sports market, affordability, favorable airport and the success of past events – including the organization’s 2015 convention. Other western cities under consideration included Los Angeles and Portland.

AWSM will begin considering locations for 2023 next year. Contact Lydia Craver at lydia.e.craver@espn.com for information and proposals.
