Baseball, Barbecue, Beer and the Blues Booking Incentive

We are continuing our short-term booking incentive, which offers a selection of cool St. Louis experiences for up to 25 VIPs. As St. Louis is known for baseball, barbecue, beer and the blues, we will offer four VIP experiences that group organizers can choose when they book a meeting of 250 total room nights by December 31, 2024, to be held by December 31, 2025.

  • Baseball Heaven: Enjoy a VIP ballpark tour for up to 25 people, including roundtrip transportation between your hotel and Busch Stadium. Your guests will be treated to a behind-the-scenes tour, including the dugout, bullpen and game operations center, as they learn about the storied history of the 11-time World Champion St. Louis Cardinals.
  • STL-Style BBQ: Treat up to 25 attendees to world-famous St. Louis-style barbecue, complete with transportation and a presentation by a pitmaster on what makes our barbecue the best in the nation. Whether you crave brisket, burnt ends, spare ribs or pulled pork, we promise this experience will be delicious.
  • Birthplace of American Brewing: Founded by German immigrants Eberhard Anheuser and Adolphus Busch along the banks of the Mighty Mississippi in 1852, the historic Anheuser-Busch Brewery will be the site of your brewmaster VIP tasting and pairing experience for up to 25 guests – and we’ll take care of the driving!
  • St. Louis Blues: A visit to St. Louis is not complete without experiencing the captivating sound of the blues! This VIP experience for 25 guests includes transportation to the National Blues Museum and a guided tour, where your attendees will create their own Blues tune as they sample local food and beverage specialties.
