Why Choose Our Destination?

Overland Park, Kansas We believe we’re all better off when more time is spent together. That way when we meet again, it feels like a warm reunion at summer camp. Overland Park is small-town vibes with big-city perks. We’re the world’s best barbecue served by the smoker himself; don’t-lift-a-finger service from smiling faces that call you by name; familiar favorites, yet always with something new to share. We make the magic happen so you can focus on one another. Annual meetings, corporate gatherings and related events are on the rise in Overland Park as more meeting planners discover all that our city has to offer. Where we are is smack in the middle of the map. What we’re not is flyover country. We are everything the coasts wish they were -- adventure, innovation, culture and flavor together with friendly smiles, familiar faces and unwavering community. Our comfortable, open-concept Overland Park Convention Center is home to local art, striking architecture and sun-filled spaces, making time together here feel easier, lighter somehow. This year, the center was named one of the nation’s top 20 ‘Centers of Excellence’ by EXHIBITOR Magazine and a ‘Best Convention Center in North America’ by Business View Magazine. The light and airy center provides 98,500 sq.ft. of meeting space with additional space at the connected hotel. If an intimate gathering is more your speed, our unexpected spaces such as the breathtaking Museum at Prairiefire offers one-of-a-kind space including NASA-developed dichroic glass exterior and dinosaur fossils inside, including a T-Rex cast overlooking your attendees. When it’s time to put away the laptop and toss the name badge aside, Overland Park is the perfect place to unwind. Choose your own adventure to team build, celebrate a victory or create new friendships. With a diverse number of award-winning restaurants, and new experiences & attractions, your attendees will refuel, relax and have some fun. Let’s chat. We’d love to show you what it means to be together in Overland Park. Brad Plumb, Visit Overland Park Sales & Services bplumb@visitop.com 913-553-2874
