City Information

Meet St. Louis

Centrally located in America’s heartland, St. Louis, the Gateway City, is convenient and easy to get to. St. Louis Lambert International Airport sits just minutes from downtown with convenient access to interstates and the MetroLink light rail system. Once you arrive at the conference, the convention corridor is compact and walkable making it easy to connect with colleagues and friends no matter where they are staying downtown.

St. Louis provides a world-class experience of hotels, restaurants, attractions and entertainment without all the hassle and expense of other larger cities. The city hosts world-class sports, theatre, live music (St. Louis is home of the Blues) and more—all within easy reach.

The tallest arch in the world and the tallest monument in the U.S. is just steps away from America’s Center! You will delight in the $380 million transformation of the 90-acre Gateway Arch National Park featuring a fully renovated museum, new spaces for performances, events, and paths for biking and walking—the city boasts miles of green to explore.

St. Louis is also a foodies’ delight, with many diverse dining options. Enjoy Peruvian, Italian, French, Mediterranean, famous St. Louis ribs and more cuisine from around the world—all within walking distance of the America’s Center.
