You will need the make/model/plate of the car. So if you are renting a car, it’s best to do this after you pick up your rental. If you want to order it in advance, make up your car information, then call Parkmobile at 866-330-7275 to update it and then print the new one at the hotel. Or you can pay a daily ~$35 fee through a kiosk in the lot.

It takes about 45-60 minutes to get from Denver International Airport to the UMC or hotels, depending on traffic. The ground transportation information counter is on Level 5 of terminal, hours are 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

To get from the hotels to the symposium, you can walk (up a hill), catch a bus, or Uber/Lyft depending on which hotel you choose. They are all relatively close but ask the hotels for the best option. If you rent a car, you can use the paid parking across from the UMC, and it will be easy for you to enjoy Boulder (see below).
