The Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau invites you to experience Columbia, Missouri. Our unique blend of small town and big city offers an exciting venue for a well-planned and successful meeting.

Why Columbia?

Convenient Location: Halfway between Saint Louis and Kansas City on Interstate 70, our central location results in higher attendance for you.

Choices: With 37 hotels representing more than 3,700 rooms, our lodging options can accommodate any budget. Food is important to your attendees’ experience. Columbia has more than 200 restaurants, many of them uniquely local.

Fun: Imagine the sounds of laughter drifting through your group while working their way through a series of fun and challenging obstacles designed by MU’s Venture Out Teambuilding Program. Or the cheers of a group trying axe throwing for the first time. Bringing people together through experiences is an area where Columbia excels.

Value: Columbia’s meeting and lodging facilities are very reasonably priced.  Our sales staff is happy to assist you in securing proposals and setting up site visits, saving you valuable time. Our commitment is to ensure that all meetings, big or small receive our undivided attention and service excellence.
