Earlier this year, we announced that our 2015 Annual SMA Conference will be held in Kansas City. We’ll be opening registration for the conference in just a few weeks. In the meantime, read on for a little more about the city and the hotel where our conference will be held. Then, get ready for the barbeque capital of the United States!
Known as the City of Fountains and home to some of the world’s best jazz and barbeque, Kansas City serves up urban sophistication with Midwestern hospitality.
The Annual SMA Conference will be held at the Westin Kansas City at Crown Center. In addition to the hotel, the Crown Center is comprised of hundreds of stores, restaurants and theatres—all just a stone’s throw from the hotel’s front doors.
The Science City at Union Station is directly connected to the hotel via The Link, an above-ground pedestrian path.
The hotel is also a short distance from the Kansas City Zoo, Imax theatre, Sea Life Aquarium, Legoland Discovery Center, Kaleidoscope, Worlds of Fun, and the Toy and Miniature Museum, the Kansas City Historic Jazz District and several museums and monuments.
We can’t wait for the conference—we hope you’re planning to join us!
