Our Host City: Salt Lake City, Utah—A Vibrant World-Class City

Salt Lake is located in the center of the American west. The city of more than one million people rests in a valley at 4,330 feet. The majestic Wasatch Mountains surround the city and soar to a dramatic 11,000 feet. As the region’s hub for commerce, transportation, medical services, research, higher education, and cultural attractions, Salt Lake is a vibrant, modern metropolis.

The walkable downtown convention district features 200+ restaurants, cafes, brewpubs, and bars. There are two large shopping malls, art and history museums, IMAX theater, planetarium, professional sports teams, theater, opera, ballet, and symphony. Historic Temple Square offers numerous admission-free cultural attractions, including the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. A fare-free light rail line runs through the compact convention district.

On the edge of the downtown convention district, Memory Grove Park and City Creek Canyon provide scenic walking and biking trails. Further out from downtown, you can experience all the great outdoors has to offer within 10-35 minutes: golfing, mountain biking, hiking in wilderness areas, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, trail running, picnics, and tram rides that top out on 11,000-foot mountain peaks. Utah is one of the most accessible outdoor destinations in the world, encompassing 85,000 square miles of nature’s offerings, from the Rocky Mountains to the Southwestern desert. Twenty-one national parks and monuments and thirteen world-class ski resorts are all within a day’s drive of Salt Lake, making pre- or post-event vacation options easy.
