It all starts here.
Revamped venues. New hotels. And a new single-terminal coming to Kansas City International Airport in early 2023. With an undeniable momentum taking hold, Kansas City is moving to the top of every meeting planner’s destination wish list. Host a meeting in the heart of the New Midwest—a bigger idea of what the Midwest can be. Find a new energy fueled by creativity and a renewed spirit in every neighborhood. And see why the center of the country is quickly becoming the center of attention.
Kansas City has more than enough room for all your big ideas. The state-of-the-art KC Convention Center recently completed a $150 million expansion and technology upgrade—not to mention that it features 800,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, including 388,800 square feet of column-free exhibit space. It’s also home to one of the largest LEED-certified ballrooms in the region, along with 48 meeting rooms, a 2,400-seat theater and an arena that holds up to 10,700 people. Conveniently located Downtown, it puts attendees just steps from hotels, dining and entertainment options.
With 34,000-plus hotel rooms in the Kansas City metro area—and more on the way—there’s a spot for everyone in your group. You’ll find major brands alongside upscale boutiques and historic renovations. New properties, like the 21c Museum Hotel and Crossroads Hotel, are already wowing guests, and the 800-room Loews Kansas City Hotel debuted in June 2020, adding another 60,000 square feet of prime meeting space.
Known for its world-famous barbecue, jazz and fountains, Kansas City will keep attendees busy long after business is done for the day. Enjoy James Beard chefs and unique farm-to-table offerings. Cheer on Super Bowl champs at the loudest stadium in the NFL. Take to the field with legends at the Negro Leagues Baseball Musem or walk in the footsteps of President Harry Truman. From theme parks to art galleries, KC can easily fill an itinerary.
With an undeniable momentum taking hold, there’s never been a better time to see #HowWeDoKC. For more information, or to submit an RFP, get in touch at VisitKC.com/Meet.
