Geared for Growth: Your Missouri Meetings & Events Fall 2017 Kansas City Regional Expo is the place to be!

Mark a prominent spot on your calendar for the next MM&E Kansas City Regional Expo! Be sure to join us October 4 and 5, 2017, at the Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center.

Our theme – “Geared for Growth” – emphasizes that many moving parts must go into planning any enterprise, in particular a successful meeting or event. Some parts are people, including members of your organization interfacing and working with other industry professionals, be they peers in planning… or vendors, from a face painter to a fine hotel. By gearing up for growth, we are making sure the work we do for our companies or clients is seamless and transparent. You don’t need to know how a luxury auto or fine watch work, only that together they’ll get you where you need to be, on time.
As you may have experienced at our previous Expos, we have a full slate of compelling speakers, along with educational sessions, exhibitors, products and  services… all enhanced by some of the finest food and networking opportunities you’ll find in the Kansas City metro. You’ll meet representatives
from the region’s most interesting and innovative meetings venues, hotels, resorts, destinations, and most any professional product or service provider. One evening, you’ll enjoy the chance to dialogue with them during our MEET® Business Exchange session.

As our guests attest, year after year… whenever you take part in an MM&E Expo, important business partnerships are formed, creative events ideas are built, and lasting relationships are forged!

The Young Professionals Meet and Greet is a time to network and spark conversations surrounding the tourism and hospitality industry while enjoying appetizers and cocktails. This event will be held at Main Event Entertainment in Independence, MO from 7:30 pm-9:30 pm on October 4, 2017. This is an occasion for young professionals to boost career opportunities by building relationships with like-minded individuals and gaining knowledge of the top businesses in the region. Vastly expand your network circle by distributing your business cards at the Young Professionals Meet and Greet. For more information, call 314-781-8880 or email
