Meet St. Louis – Responsibly

St. Louis is open and ready to host your event.

In collaboration with public health officials and industry stakeholders, Explore St. Louis led an effort to safely and responsibly re-open our community beginning on May 18, 2020.  The result was a series of safety protocols addressing all aspects of our tourism industry including hotels, transportation services, restaurants and venues, including the America’s Center Convention Complex.  To date we’ve hosted a wide variety of events at America’s Center, as well as hotels throughout the region showcased in the gallery below.
