THAT'S HOW WE DO MEETINGS IN KANSAS CITY
The Kansas City metro—now more connected than ever thanks to the KC Streetcar—offers more than 32,000 guest rooms, nearly 2,500 of which that are within three blocks of the Convention Center, plus a new downtown convention hotel opening in 2020. Encompassing more than 800,000 square feet, the Kansas City Convention & Entertainment Facilities can serve every meeting need under one roof. Not to mention that the Kansas City Convention Center houses 388,800 square feet of contiguous, column-free exhibit space in Bartle Hall. As part of a $150 million improvement project, the center's meeting space was recently renovated, resulting in one of the largest green ballrooms in the nation. NEW KCI SINGLE TERMINAL AIRPORT LANDS 2021 In November 2017, voters overwhelmingly approved the construction of a new single-terminal at Kansas City International Airport. NEW LOEWS CONVENTION CENTER HOTEL OPENS 2020 The new 800-room Loews Kansas City Convention Center Hotel will totally change the convention experience in Kansas City. Think big. State-of-the-art amenities, a signature restaurant, 60,000 square feet of meeting and event space and a new connector bridge to the Kansas City Convention Center combine to make the perfect lodging option for any group of any size. Expect this new addition to the city skyline in 2020. Construction began in early 2018. MODERN STREETCAR Now in its second year, the KC Streetcar far surpassed expectations in its inaugural 365 days, thanks in part to the more than 2 million riders and $2 billion in investment along the 2.2-mile line. Climb aboard and explore the city’s Downtown renaissance. HOTELS, HOTELS, HOTELS Kansas City excels when it comes to overnight accommodations, dining out and meeting locations. In fact, the metropolitan area already touts more than 32,000 hotel rooms—with 4,200 committable rooms in the convention core by 2020. More hotels mean more convenience. Additions like Hotel Indigo (now open), 21c Museum Hotel (debuting soon) and the Loews Convention Center Hotel (opening in 2020) make KC even better for meetings.

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 get to 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 more than 400 daily flights with nonstop service to 48 destinations. KC straddles the Missouri-Kansas state line, sometimes causing travelers to wonder which state they are in. You’re not alone! 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.
