IRDC 2021: Discover Retail Inspiration in the Heart of Denver

Explore local culture, retail and architecture in three of Denver’s most dynamic neighborhoods




Leave behind the conference room setting for an urban adventure in a city known for its active, outdoor lifestyle and 300 days of sunshine annually.

This year, IRDC’s Retail Inspiration self-guided tours detail the coolest cultural spots, most engaging local stores and breathtaking architecture in three of our 2021 host city’s most vibrant neighborhoods:

• River North Art District

• Lower Downtown

• South Broadway

If you’re up for the challenge, put on your walking shoes, choose your destination, grab a few friends and head out for adventure. Some of the most interesting corners of this fast-paced, ever-evolving city are just steps away from the Sheraton Denver Downtown hotel.


Learn more about each unique neighborhood and be sure to add the Retail Walking Tours to your agenda during registration!
