Getting Here

Positioned in the Heart of America, Kansas City’s central location makes it easily accessible by interstates and highways, as well as a quick flight from just about anywhere in the nation. And once you arrive, everything is within reach. Kansas City’s location has been an asset to meeting planners for years. But it’s also a huge advantage for the attendees. In fact, more than 55 million Americans can reach Kansas City in less than a day’s drive. And flying here is even easier—as Kansas City International Airport is just a three-hour flight away from each coast. All major U.S. air carriers serve KCI, which offers hundreds of daily flights with nonstop service to dozens of destinations. KC straddles the Missouri-Kansas state line, which can cause confusion. Here are a few tips to help: If you are west of State Line Road, you are in Kansas. If you are east of it, you are in Missouri. Follow the Missouri River to the north, and if you are west of it, you are in Kansas. East of it, you’re in Missouri.
