3500 hotel rooms within one mile of convention center

KC is creating a buzz. That’s what happens when you spend $6.5 billion revitalizing your downtown. Start with a brand new convention district with more than 50 restaurants and entertainment venues outside the door of the convention center. Add an expanded and renovated convention center complex and a brand new arena. Then, renovate nearly every downtown hotel room. Finally, sprinkle in unique museums that you won’t find anywhere else, and you’ll discover a brand new convention experience in Kansas City.

Why Meet in Kansas City

State-of-the-Art Meeting Spaces - The Kansas City area offers first-rate exhibit and meeting facilities of all sizes. The Kansas City Convention Center houses 388,800 square feet of contiguous, column-free exhibit space in Bartle Hall.

Convenience - Kansas City’s location has been an asset to meeting planners for years. But it’s also a huge advantage for the attendees as well. In fact, more than 55 million Americans can get to Kansas City in less than a day’s drive. And Kansas City International Airport is just a three-hour flight away from each coast.

Affordability - Kansas City is easy on the bottom line, thanks to reasonable rates for lodging, airfare, food and services. Since KCI Airport is not a hub for any single airline, competition among carriers keeps airfares down. When you compare hotel costs, food costs and other services, Kansas City stacks up well against its competition.
