Meeting Planning in Kansas City, MO
Kansas City Convention & Entertainment Facilities
Selected as one of National Geographic's Best Trips 2019, Kansas City has become the capital of the New Midwest. As the publication so aptly put it, now's the time to "revel in the revival" with an expansive convention center in the heart of the city, major hotel brands, recent lodging renovations, and modern travel throughout the downtown corridor - not to mention stunning cuisine, swinging jazz, one-of-a-kind museums, a thriving arts scene, and luxury retail.
A sprawling, eight-square-block complex, the Kansas City Convention Center is a state-of-the-art facility that can accommodate everything from large-scale trade shows to expansive sporting events. The center offers 800,000 square feet of total space - 388,800 square feet of which constitutes contiguous, column-free space, as well as the 46,484-square-foot, LEED Silver-certified Grand Ballroom (the largest green ballroom in the United States), 45 modern meeting rooms, a 2,400-seat fine arts theater, a 10,000-seat arena, two outdoor festival plazas, and more than 1,000 parking spots.
Plus, the convention center is connected to major downtown hotels and parking by skywalks and underground walkways, making transit to and from simple and convenient.
