Josh Mishell writes to inform us of something that might make up your mind up about attending AIGA’s national design conference, NEXT, in Denver this fall:

The Great American Beer Festival is the same weekend, in the same convention center. It’s a great time, 1600 beers from 400 breweries.

1600 beers, 400 breweries, and 3000 designers? Are they offering some kind of 2 for 1 deal on registration? Can we bring drinks into the mainstage auditorium? Where’s the after party?

You’ll remember AIGA’s last conference in Boston shared a convention center with some kind of college fair that had rock music thumping the floor during Sagmeister‘s presentation. At least this time he’ll only have to be heard over the clatter of people knocking into chairs as they make their way to the bathroom for the fifteenth time that day. Oh, right…and the burping.
