DENVER, COLORADO: The Mile High City

Denver, the mile high city, is young, exciting and growing. In the
past five years, Denver has built three new sports stadiums, a new
airport, a new downtown amusement park, a new world class aquarium,
several major new shopping centers, a new downtown entertainment
complex and a variety of other new attractions.

Located in the middle of the United States, Denver is a unique city,
rich in diversity and culture. Denver has one of the largest
downtowns in America and it's the hottest entertainment district in
the West. There's something to do in Denver almost 24-hours a day.

At the center of the downtown activity is the Denver Pavilions, a
two-square block entertainment complex with a Hard Rock Caf,
NikeTown, Virgin Records, 15 cinemas, restaurants, nightspots and 50
stores on three levels. Free shuttle buses cruise the 16th Street
Mall as often as every 90 seconds, making everything in Downtown
convenient and easy to reach.

For Tony-award-winning theatre, symphony, opera, Broadway road shows
and dance, there's the Denver Performing Arts Complex, the largest
performing arts center in the world under one roof. Within easy
walking distance are the Denver Art Museum, the Colorado History
Museum and the U.S. Mint.

With 300 days of bright sunshine a year, Denver is the place for
enjoying the great outdoors, and surprisingly, much of it is
downtown. From the ED-MEDIA 2002 location at the Hyatt Hotel, the
beautiful formal gardens at The Civic Center Park is just a short
walk away. And Six Flags Elitch Gardens, America's only downtown
theme park, features more than 48 thrill rides, a complete water
adventure park, elaborate gardens, shows and more. In metropolitan
Denver, you can visit the Denver Zoo, the fourth most popular zoo in
America and the home of more than 3,500 animals.

 From the breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountains to the culture,
sports, color and entertainment of the city, Denver is an ideal
location for ED-MEDIA 2002. We look forward to seeing you there.
