Denver posted its best October ever for convention delegates and convention room nights, Visit Denver said Tuesday.
The Mile High City drew 81 conventions in October with 75,582 delegates accounting for 118,369 room nights, the convention and visitors bureau said. Nine of the conventions were staged at the Colorado Convention Center.
Denver saw no very large conventions in October, but rather an unusually large number of small- to mid-sized meetings.
October also saw Denver’s highest average room rates ever, reaching $188.81 per night downtown and $125.62 across the metro area, Visit Denver said, citing Rocky Mountain Lodger’s Report data. Those rates even topped typical charges during the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
