America’s largest annual gathering of progressives will be heading to Denver, Colorado next year for its fifteenth meeting, Netroots Board Chair Arshad Hasan announced a short time ago during the Netroots Nation 2019 opening keynote.
NN20 will take place at the Colorado Convention Center, which is located in the city’s downtown core. The Convention Center previously hosted the daytime activities of the 2008 Democratic National Convention in July of 2008 (evening general programs were held at the Pepsi Center and Invesco Field).
“Opened in 1990, with more than one hundred professional meeting planners working together with architects to design every aspect of the building, the result was simple; a sensible, state-of-the-art facility with easy traffic flow and everything you need in a stunningly beautiful building in the heart of downtown Denver,” the facility’s website says on its overview page.
“Expanded in 2005, well-known as one of the most practical and ‘user friendly’ meeting facilities, the Colorado Convention Center is now home to over 230+ events annually. The Colorado Convention Center is located within easy walking distance of nearly 10,000 hotel rooms, 300 restaurants, 9 theatres of the Denver Performing Arts Complex and a wide variety of shopping and retail outlets.”
The convention will return to August next year after being held in July this year (it is always in June, July, or August). The 2020 Democratic National Convention will have occurred several weeks prior in Milwaukee, while the 2020 Republican National Convention will be held soon after in Charlotte.
Thursday, August 13th will be the opening day of the 2020 Netroots Nation Convention and Saturday, August 15th will be the closing day.
The host hotel for next year will be the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center, located at 650 15th Street.
