There’s a reason that old adage “Location, location, location!” remains popular—and it’s especially true in the corporate meetings and events industry. Where you choose to host your meeting or event plays a key role in the overall attendee experience. And whether you need a professional, polished facility that can host thousands or an inventive, unexpected space for more intimate gatherings, Overland Park offers a range of meeting facilities that will delight your attendees.
Conveniently perched along one of the Kansas City area’s main interstates, the Overland Park Convention Center is among the city’s most recognized landmarks. The spacious, modern, fully equipped facility offers 98,500 square feet of meeting space, including a 60,000-square-foot exhibition hall, a 25,000-square-foot dividable ballroom, eight additional meeting rooms and an outdoor courtyard.
Because attendee comfort and convenience is always top of mind, the Overland Park Convention Center is connected to the 412-room Sheraton Overland Park, which not only offers inviting accommodations but also an additional 21,000 square feet of meeting space. If you need more lodging, more than 1,000 additional rooms are within walking distance to the convention center.
Other facility amenities include complimentary parking, in-house food and beverage, complimentary WiFi, a cyber café, in-house audio/visual and spacious registration areas. Attendees will also be captivated by the colorful art that’s displayed throughout the convention center, a visual testament to the importance of public art in Overland Park.
The city also offers a range of other meeting facilities and event spaces. Host your gathering against the captivating backdrop of the Museum at Prairiefire, the exterior of which greets guests with an eye-catching display of NASA-designed dichroic glass that mimics the energy and intensity of Kansas prairie fires.
Or blend work and play at Topgolf, an upscale, high-tech recreation destination at which guests hit micro-chipped golf balls and receive points for hitting various outfield targets. More than 100 hitting bays offer climate-controlled, year-round play. Satisfy hungry and thirsty attendees at Topgolf’s full-service restaurant, three bars and a rooftop terrace with fire pits.
Take your meeting or event to the big screen at Cinetopia Overland Park 18, which offers inviting, high-tech Living Room, Parlor and GXL theaters that can host between 20 and 400 people.
