Here are just a few unique reasons to meet in the Gateway City:

  • The Dome at America's Center, a 67,000-seat facility that was the first "stadium" convention center to actually act as a convention center first and sports facility second.
  • A light rail line that begins inside both terminals at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and connects riders to many of the community's major attractions, including the America's Center convention complex.
  • A convention center that offers such amenities as a 28,000-square foot ballroom (the largest in Missouri and the largest between Chicago and Dallas) and a 1,400-seat state-of-the-art lecture hall inside the building.
  • Innovative convention services programs designed to make meeting attendees feel welcome and understand how much St. Louisans appreciate the economic impact they create during their stay.
  • The only convention center in the country to offer catering by a Mobil Four-Star restaurateur in the partnership between The Levy Restaurants of Chicago and Tony's of St. Louis.
  • A newly reorganized convention sales staff that is exploring the challenges facing destination marketing organizations of the future - particularly those affecting CVBs that also manage and operate a convention facility like we do in St. Louis.
  • A destination that projects its own undeniable charm, character and sophistication on the surface and is filled with lively music clubs, hundreds of unique restaurants, shops, and a variety of cultural and family-friendly attractions.
