Meet St. Louis

Trina Fox-Konz
St. Lou…is Renewed
 
St. Louis is a place where history and imagination collide, and the result is a Midwestern destination filled with one-of-a-kind attractions, restaurants, shops and adventures. The exciting destination features a tight package for citywide meetings and events in the heart of the re-developed downtown central business district. More than $5 billion worth of development has been invested across the region, and more exciting projects are on the way.
 
The St. Louis Convention Quarter is beating with a new pulse of excitement!! In addition to the over 100 walkable restaurants, we welcomed the opening of Ballpark Village this March, which is an amazing $100 million venue! This is the first-ever sports anchored entertainment district located next to Busch Stadium home of the St. Louis Cardinals. Right now, St. Louis is creating its future and legacy through a $380 million CityArchRiver project that will transform the national park surrounding the Gateway Arch and create a new place to gather and celebrate in the heart of downtown.
 
Our hotel partners continue to raise the bar of reinvestment with luxurious new and renovated rooms. St. Louis’ Convention Quarter offers every major hotel brand to include Marriott, Four Seasons, Hilton, Embassy Suites and Hyatt with up to 7,000 committable rooms. The momentum continues to build as we enter July 2015, and we will have over 2,000 newly renovated rooms all just steps outside of the America’s Center and Edward Jones Dome.
 
We invite you to share in our excitement and experience first-hand the momentum that St. Louis has to offer! St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission
