2015 Hotel & Reception

Hotel Reservations

The elegant, historical St Louis Union Station Hotel will serve as the backdrop for the 2015 conference, the theme of which is “Plug into Missouri’s tech, tools and talent.” This combination of rich heritage and modern technology perfectly fuses together the storied history of the Show-Me State with the forward-thinking innovations that continue to propel the state’s economic development practices.

Thursday evening's reception at Busch Stadium promises to be unforgettable. An evening on the track of the St. Louis Cardinal's home field offers a panoramic view of St. Louis that is not to be missed. Add to that an appearance by Cardinal's mascot, Fredbird, and you have a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
