Convention Center & Hotels
(The Marriott Downtown on the left, the spires of the Convention Center in the center)
The eight-square-block convention and special event facility can accommodate every need with 388,800 square feet of column-free exhibit space on one floor, 48 state-of-the-art meeting rooms, a 2,400-seat fine arts theater, an arena that seats more than 10,700 people, and two unique outdoor reception, festival, and activity areas. The complex is connected to major downtown hotels and underground parking by glass-enclosed skywalks and below-ground walkways.
Bartle Hall’s main exhibition hall covers an area the size of eight football fields. This allows for more than 2,000 10-by-10 foot booths, and enough room to create eye-catching pavilions or huge equipment displays without having to squeeze them between columns.
The Kansas City Marriott Downtown, located at 200 West 12th Street, Kansas City Missouri 64105, will function as our main hotel. We’ve arranged for a very low rate of $124/night with free wifi. The hotel’s central location is convenient to the Convention Center and Bartle Hall, and various restaurants and entertainment options are all within walking distance. We also have additional rooms in 4 other hotels, none of which are more than 2 blocks from the convention center.
(Power & Light District)
The Kansas City Power & Light District is a premier dining, entertainment, and shopping district in the heart of downtown Kansas City.
