Getting There

Don't Wait to Book Your Discounted Hotel Room

Book before the October 8th deadline!

The 2021 Design-Build Conference & Expo will be held at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center outside Denver. This beautiful facility is known for providing its guests everything needed for a beautiful Rocky Mountain experience away from the hustle of the city. While just 15 minutes to Denver International Airport, it is the only hotel near our conference activities so we recommend all of our attendees plan to stay at this site to avoid daily commutes.

Our discounted room rates of $229 per night for single/double also include the resort fees. Prevailing government per diem rates at time of event apply.
