AUBER Fall Conference 2020


It is with much regret to announce that the AUBER Fall Conference will not be held in Boulder this September. The realities of ongoing conoravirus transmission, not to mention travel restrictions and budget cuts, make the likelihood of a successful in-person conference too small to responsibly proceed. Our 2020 conference will be held online.


Regional Economic Disparities: How Can We Make a Difference?
With a widening economic opportunity gap between urban and rural America, those who provide regional economic data and analysis are extremely well positioned to make a real difference in our areas. How do we best understand and inform others of the challenges faced by urban and rural America? What are the best strategies for developing these significantly different types of regions?

Join us for the 73rd Annual Fall Conference held in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, from September 19-22, 2020, and hosted by the Business Research Division at the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business.

The conference will be held at one of the most famous landmarks in Boulder, Colorado – the Hotel Boulderado. Located one block away from the popular Pearl Street Mall, the gorgeous, historic hotel is in the heart of downtown. The special discounted rate for AUBER conference attendees is $239 per night.
