The Intersection of Infrastructure and Technology

The 2016 conference of the Growth & Infrastructure Consortium included sessions addressing the effects of new technologies (the sharing economy, robotic vehicles, etc.), on future infrastructure needs, the shape of future housing demand (new housing options, effects of housing loss), sustainability (measuring sustainability, water conservation), and a walking tour of downtown Denver bike/ped/transit improvements.

The conference was held in Denver, CO on Oct. 12-14. About 70 people attended.  The conference began Wednesday evening, with a welcome reception at the Embassy Suites Downtown/Convention Center Hotel. The conference hotel was a 10-minute free transit ride from the Union Station, which provided convenient rail connections to the Denver airport and many other destinations. Conference registration was $275 early, $350 regular, and $75 student, and included Thursday and Friday lunches and Thursday might dinner.  A Friday evening pub crawl was available for those who were staying Friday night. AICP members were able to earn up to 11.25 credit hours.
