Host City - St. Louis
St. Louis is where history and imagination collide, and the result is a destination like no other. In addition to a revitalized downtown, a vibrant new hospitality district continues to grow outside of the America’s Center convention complex. More than $5 billion worth of development has been invested in the region, and more exciting projects are currently underway.
The Gateway to the West is a melting pot of cultures located at the crossroads of America. The region enjoys the ethnic influences of early immigrants from Germany, Italy, Ireland and Poland, coupled with newer arrivals from Bosnia, Ethiopia, Africa, Asia, Latin America and beyond. The result is dozens of unique shops, boutiques, galleries and one-of-a-kind restaurants that contribute to the region’s multicultural flair.
St. Louis offers exceptional music, arts and cultural options, as well as such renowned – and free – attractions as the Saint Louis Art Museum, Zoo, and Science Center, the Missouri History Museum, Citygarden, Grant’s Farm, Laumeier Sculpture Park, the Museum of Westward Expansion, and the Anheuser-Busch brewery tours. Plus, St. Louis is easy to get to and even easier to get around in. St. Louis is within approximately 500 miles of one-third of the U.S. population and within 1,500 miles of 90 percent of the people in North America.
