21 – 23 June 2017 Kansas City, MO


Attendees are responsible for making their own hotel arrangements.  All meeting sessions for the conferences will be held at the InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza, 401 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, MO 64112.

We urged attendees to book a hotel room at the InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza as revenue from sleeping rooms helps offset other meeting costs and is passed down to attendees in keeping registration rates to a minimum.

A block of rooms had been reserved at the hotel for meeting attendees at the special rate of $167 single/double plus tax and a government per diem rate of $117 single/double plus tax for those who qualify.  Rates did not include applicable sales and/or occupancy tax, currently 15.85%, and a $1.74 Arena Fee.

Getting There
