Visitor information Center Staffers

Join the team at one of the four area Explore St. Louis Visitor Information Centers. We are located downtown in the lobby of the Gateway Arch Visitor Center, at St. Louis Lambert International Airport with two centers – one each in Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, and at the Dennis and Judith Jones Visitor & Education Center in Forest Park.


Convention Volunteer Team

Our Convention Volunteer Team (CVT) members have the opportunity to promote St. Louis during major conventions and tradeshows held at America’s Center. This group of enthusiastic, uniformed volunteers helps convention delegates explore St. Louis and navigate through the convention complex. CVT’ers are called to action during the approximately 30 major conventions and special events held at the convention center throughout the year.


Gateway Greeters

The Gateway Greeters, another group of friendly faces on the St. Louis hospitality team, make sure that visitors receive a warm welcome and friendly assistance. The airport is often a traveler’s first exposure to St. Louis, so Greeters need to be knowledgeable about a variety of dining, sightseeing, shopping and the best ways to get around town. In addition to providing all the “insider” information that only a local would know, Gateway Greeters help assist passengers find their way around the airport.
