4 Ways KC Can Help Make Your Meeting Safer
With gatherings being reimagined and new safety guidelines in place, it’s never been more important to select a destination and venue that are prepared to meet your group’s needs. Here’s how Kansas City can help as you work to keep every attendee safe.
New safety standards in place
Thanks to the KC Clean Commitment, you can easily find hotels, restaurants, suppliers and other KC businesses that have pledged to uphold a specific set of health and safety standards designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Additionally, some of the area's premier properties have been certified as Global Biorisk Advisory Council STAR Accredited Facilities, maintaining a rigorous set of outbreak prevention and response standards.
Home to the reigning NFL champions and more than a dozen unique meeting spaces, Arrowhead Stadium holds accreditation after demonstrating compliance with 20 key elements of the GBAC STAR program.
Named the best small convention center in the U.S. by EXHIBITOR Magazine, the GBAC STAR-certified Overland Park Convention Center offers 1,000+ hotel rooms within walking distance.
Plenty of space to stay distanced (and get inspired)
The Kansas City Convention Center features 800,000 square feet of meeting space under one roof, offering a selection of spaces to maximize efficiency and keep a safe distance between attendees. With a direct connection from the lobby of the newly opened, 800-room Loews Kansas City Hotel, guests can access the KC Convention Center in seconds while minimizing contact with high-touch surfaces.
Thousands of additional hotel rooms—as well as green spaces and restaurants with expanded outdoor seating—are within a few blocks of the Convention Center’s facilities, reducing the need for additional contact via public or private transportation.
Safe and convenient ways to arrive
Kansas City is the country’s most centrally located major metropolitan area. That places the City of Fountains within a day’s drive for 55 million Americans—a standout selection for minimizing travel by plane and allowing attendees to safely arrive via private vehicle.
Savings in every step of the process
KC’s affordability has caught the attention of Kiplinger’s, Money Magazine and more. Ensure you have the resources you need to keep attendees safe by planning a budget-friendly meeting in Kansas City, Travel and Leisure’s #1 affordable getaway destination.
From below-average hotel room rates and food costs to the KC Convention Center’s open catering policy, you’ll find ways to save in Kansas City that are hard to come by in any other destination.
