It All Starts Here
Kansas City’s location has been an asset to meeting planners for years. But it’s also a huge advantage for the attendees. It’s America’s most centrally located major metropolitan area, with easy access from either coast. And once you arrive, everything is within reach.
The Complete Downtown Package
Meet and stay in the middle of it all. The innovative 800,000-square-foot convention center is ideal for running with big ideas. And with more than 6,000 hotel rooms nearby, attendees are steps away from a wide array of dining and entertainment options.
State-of-the-Art Convention Center
In addition to 800,000 square feet of space, every venue within the convention center has a personality all its own: from a massive, column-free exhibit space to an outdoor plaza and sculpture garden that accommodates up to 2,000.
Check In To More Than 34,000 Hotel Rooms
Between the gleaming, $20 million renovation at The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center (and the April 2020 Loews opening) and boutique properties steeped in history, find the perfect property for your group.
Hop On Board the Free-to-Ride KC Streetcar
The KC Streetcar connects you to vibrant Downtown districts—as well as free Wi-Fi—and saves your attendees time and energy. Hop on to explore 2.2 miles of dining and entertainment options along the way.
Kansas City’s award-winning barbecue scene is more than noteworthy. But there’s a whole lot more to taste these days. You’ll also find modern American cuisine, vegan fare and James Beard Award winners in this culinary crossroads.
"Revel in the Revival"
Crowned one of National Geographic’s Best Trips for 2019, Kansas City is buzzing with a $10 billion renaissance complete with revitalized attractions and facilities. From the lively Power & Light entertainment district to the artsy Crossroads neighborhood, there’s plenty to explore.
Coming Soon: A New Single Terminal to KCI
Flying in and out of KC is about to get a first-class upgrade. Taking off in early 2023 is a new single terminal at KCI, greeting travelers with enhanced amenities, more food and beverage options, and countless other features ideal for traveling in the 21st century.
