Getting Here

The closest airport to both the conference accommodations and venue is Kansas City International (MCI), which is located approximately 22 miles away (25 minute drive).

At the Kansas City International airport, you can rent a car, use app-based ridesharing services, schedule a shuttle, or catch a taxi downtown to the hotel or venue. For more information about transportation services from the airport to downtown Kansas City, please visit FlyKC’s website.

Getting Around

While app-based ride-sharing services are available throughout the city, you may want to make use of Kansas City’s public transportation to get around:

  • The Kansas City Streetcar is an electric streetcar that runs from the River Market to the Crown Center. It is free to ride and provides an easy way around the downtown area.
  • RideKC is the local transportation authority, providing free or low-cost bus and bike options for getting around the city.
  • Bird hosts electric scooters for private use in the city! Download their app for more details.
