Experience KCMO Like a Pro

Make the most out of your trip to Kansas City, a city rich in culture and teeming with life, with these hand-picked excursions.

Exploring Paris of the Plains

National Geographic’s 2019 travel guide puts it best: You should “revel in the revival” of Kansas City. While you’re sure to find plenty of what you expect — BBQ and jazz clubs — there’s more to KCMO than just pit smokers and saxophones. And, thanks to the fare-free Ride KC Streetcar, traversing downtown KC is a breeze.

Hospitality & Dining

Hospitality at Annual Gathering 2020 runs 24 hours and features several buffet-style meals (four breakfasts, three lunches, and three dinners), snacks during all non-meal times, and a selection of beer and wine — all included with your registration.

Event Policies

You’re here for fun, food, and fellowship — in short, a good time. To ensure that good time, and for the safety and comfort of everyone, the Annual Gathering has a few policies in place. Please comply so that you and everyone else can enjoy the AG. These policies are for AG 2020.
