Welcome to Denver Colorado NACE Family!Welcome to Denver Colorado NACE Family!

As you enjoy the spectacular views that surround Denver, please keep in mind that the city's elevation is 5,280 feet. At one mile above sea level the air is thinner, and less oxygen is available. It is also colder, drier, and the ultraviolet rays from the sun are stronger.

Visitors to high elevation may experience shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, nausea, headache, unusual tiredness, or trouble sleeping. Symptoms usually pass in one to two days. If the symptoms become worse or you are concerned, please consult a doctor.

Being at high altitude will impact how alcohol affects you, so please drink responsibly and be safe!

Here are some things you can do to avoid altitude sickness:

  • Increase Fluid Intake
  • Decrease Salt Intake
  • Moderate Your Physical Activity
  • Eat High Carbohydrate, Low Fat Meals
  • Reduce Alcohol and Caffeine Intake

The sun is hotter and closer to you, so avoid getting a sunburn by using sunscreen and wear your sunglasses!

Stop by the NACE Denver Hospitality table near registration to pick up some items to help you manage the altitude and enjoy your trip!
