Pumping Up Meetings With Sporting Themes


Planners can score big with meeting professionals thanks to crowd-pleasing, sports-themed activities and events that are veritable touchdowns regardless of the group.

Spectacular Sporting Venues Kansas City is a destination that knows how to infuse meetings and conferences with sports-themed excitement. Planners can make use of a variety of world-class sporting venues, including Arrowhead Stadium, where groups can tour the home of the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Kansas Speedway, a home to always-popular NASCAR races including the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Groups can tap into the race-fueled aura with private events in the Speedway's Media Center, President's Suite and Sprint FanWalk.



Active Pursuits Groups can also get active with experiences as diverse as tree climbing (with a company called Go Climb a Tree), rock climbing (at RoKC), zip lining (with Zip KC) and golf (at any of the destination's four golf courses, including Topgolf Overland Park, which offers three levels of entertainment). Groups can even take flight at Overland Park's iFly Kansas City, an indoor experience that allows participants to feel the rush of skydiving without having to jump. Visit KC, the destination's convention and visitors bureau, helps planners find the right sports-related match for all kinds of groups. So it's never too late to pump up that next meeting.
