About Low Carb Denver 2020

Low Carb Denver 2020 is the largest conference of its kind, providing a unique educational opportunity addressing the latest science and nutritional approaches including Low Carb, Keto, Carnivore, Intermittent Fasting and Low Carb Vegetarian. There is also a focus on diabetes, heart disease, obesity, chronic disease and the role of nutrition as it relates to management, treatment and prevention. This year a host of the world’s low carb leaders including doctors, researchers, and scientists will be speaking.

The conference is open to all including healthcare and non-healthcare professionals, researchers, scientists, citizen scientists, policy makers, health and fitness enthusiasts and the general public. Our content continues to address the latest nutrition science, research, evidence, clinical and practical approaches. Another great opportunity to learn, meet distinguished guests, network, socialize and participate.

If you are a non-physician healthcare professional, we understand that many organizations accept AAFP prescribed credit/AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™. Please check with your organization regarding educational credit. In previous years 18 to 20 hours of CME credit have been approved with an average of 30 scientific sessions.

More about the event

The doors open at the Sheraton on Thursday evening March 12, 2020 with registration from 5-6pm and welcome reception from 6-9pm located in the Plaza Exhibitor/Pre-Function area adjacent to the Plaza Ballroom lecture hall. The presentations are on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Vendors/Exhibitors and Poster Presentations will be available from Thursday evening through Sunday. The registration/information desk will be staffed throughout the conference.

We are holding our event at the Sheraton Denver Downtown which houses one of the larger conference spaces in the city. As our event continues to grow finding dates and space large enough to accommodate the group becomes challenging. Last year’s event was held at the Gaylord Rockies adjacent to the airport. It was a wonderful resort, but many attendees requested a downtown venue. The Sheraton is undergoing a huge interior renovation and update which should be ready in time for our event. The hotel along with the downtown location will accommodate our group nicely. Coffee, tea and water will be provided during the conference plus vendor food samples along with the many food options around the downtown area. Locals and out-of-town guests will definitely enjoy the experience.

The Whole Foods at Union Station plus many dining options can be found nearby in the updated Union Station and Waterfront sections of town. There are many other downtown dining choices within walking distance from the hotel or via the the 16th Street Free Mall Ride shuttle.
