Guest Comfort and Safety

Guest comfort and safety is the top priority for the team at America’s Center Convention Complex. In a collaborative approach that sets St. Louis apart from other destinations, we work with event organizers to create proactive service plans, coordinating directly with the Downtown St. Louis Community Improvement District as well as the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department to best prepare for upcoming meetings, conventions and other events in and around America’s Center and The Dome.

From transportation to dining to safety, we’ve got you covered.

Our Meet St. Louis team, helmed by Jennifer Poindexter, works directly with organizers and our America’s Center Public Safety team to ensure each group’s unique needs are met. Once we know the attendee experience that you wish to create, we have the resources in place to keep your delegates engaged, happy and safe.

“Nine out of 10 meeting attendees rate America’s Center Convention Complex very good or excellent, and more than 50 percent say that they’re coming back with their families.”

– Jennifer Poindexter

In St. Louis, we pride ourselves on being aware and informed of what’s happening in our region so that we can put proper plans in place for upcoming events, making our community safe and welcoming for everyone. As a result, your attendees will experience:

  • A highly visible security presence, including patrols between America’s Center and downtown hotels, restaurants and attractions.
  • Guides and visitor information specialists strategically stationed to answer questions.
  • Bright yellow vests worn by hotel safety personnel to assist guests walking after hours between America’s Center and downtown hotels.
  • Escorts available by request as well as STL Downtown Link electric vans that offer extended hours to serve our convention guests.

At the beginning of 2024, St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones and SLMPD Chief of Police Robert Tracy released crime data that revealed major improvements to public safety in 2023 compared to 2022, pointing to the success that our region has had by being proactive and engaged in promoting safety throughout the St. Louis region, but downtown particularly. This data reflects the resurgence of the St. Louis metro area.

The energy in the St. Louis region is palpable, extending beyond our burgeoning medical and technology centers to our world-class attractions, vibrant arts-and-culture scene, lush green spaces and award-winning restaurants, breweries, wineries and distilleries. Sprinkle in our secret sauce – the warmth and hospitality of our residents – and St. Louis becomes an ideal location for your next meeting or convention.
