The CCC opened in June of 1990 with its first event: the NBA draft for the Denver Nuggets.

These can be isolated and divided via portable wall dividers as needed.
Get Your Colorado Exhibit Started Now
Today, the Colorado Convention Center is accessible via Denver’s light rail and several local bus routes.
If you’re coming in from out of state or outside the US, Denver International Airport (DIA) is about 25 miles from the convention center, depending on your route. In typical Denver traffic, you can expect this ride to take about a half hour. As in most major cities, taxis, Ubers, Lyfts, and other ride-share services are available.
There is a wide variety of hotels, Airbnb lodgings and other accommodations within comfortable walking distance to the center, but for drivers, the Colorado Convention Center is surrounded by dozens of paid public parking lots, too.
Save on shipping, storage, and show support! Condit’s Denver office is just 6 miles from the CCC, making logistics and warehousing an absolute breeze. Plus, our labor team and on-site supervisors are all local – no flights or hotels needed.
