Conference FAQs

What is the nearest airport?

There are two airports to consider: The nearest airport is the Eagle County Regional Airport. From here it is a quick ~35 minute drive to the conference venue. https://www.flyvail.com/flight-information/flight-schedules. They have daily flights from Dallas and Denver in the summer.

The largest international airport, with most direct flights to Colorado, is Denver International Airport (DIA). From here you can book a shuttle ride to the venue. Epic Express is offering Beyond Mapping registrants discounted rides of $59, one way. Much cheaper than renting a car! Plus, they have free WiFi on the shuttle for you to connect and work, if needed. From / To Denver International Airport is approximately 133 miles and you will see some wonderful landscapes on the drive up!


What are my transportation options?

If you are not renting or driving a car, you might consider using Epic Express Shuttle service. They are offering Beyond Mapping registrants a discounted fare of $59 each way (discounted from $72+). Please use this link:

How can I learn more about the agenda and specific sessions?

We have already published the Preliminary Agenda to give you a sense of what to expect from the conference. Updates to the agenda, including specific sessions will be published on this webpage as they are confirmed: https://www.novarageo.com/news-events/events/novara-geosolutions-user-conference-august-11-13/. There is also a sample justification letter on this webpage that you can fill out to give to your supervisor.


What is the history of this conference?

Novara has hosted this conference for close to 20 years. It started out as a way to bring Novara clients together and facilitate industry related and Novara-specific conversations. However, as the event evolved and as Novara has added more services, the event has grown and now includes more industry nuetral topics, must-see industry speakers and attracts attendees from all over the world. Three years ago the event was rebranded from Novara's User Conference to what it is now, Beyond Mapping, as a declaration that while GIS is in our roots and very important, we must simultaneously look broadly at industry topics impacting pipeline and utility asset management, operations and regulatory compliance.


Is my family welcome to join me?

Yes. The Tuesday night welcome reception is open to spouses and children. The Wednesday night social is open to spouses only. Please specify if you will have children on your registration form as we are investigating babysitting options for Wednesday night (you won't want to miss Wednesday night social).


How should I prepare for a high-elevation setting?

The Park Hyatt sits at about 11,440 ft in elevation. We encourage you to take certain steps to prevent altitude sickness, such as: increase your water intake two days before your departure and during your stay; fly in a day early and stay overnight in Denver to acclimate to the higher altitude; get plenty of rest before and during your travels; avoid caffeinated products that can dehydrate your muscles; drink more water (yep, we added this one again); take it easy the first day; and increase the carbs. Please feel free to research how to acclimate to high altitudes for more suggestions.


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please feel to reach out to Victoria Skogman, Strategic Marketing Manager, if you have any questions or comments regarding the User Conference: vskogman@novarageo.com.
