St. Louis is a major city in Missouri along the Mississippi River. The Louisiana Purchase Exposition, informally known as the St. Louis World’s Fair, was an international exposition held in St. Louis in 1904. The city’s iconic 630-ft. Gateway Arch was built in the 1960s to honor the early 19th-century explorations of Lewis and Clark and America’s westward expansion in general. Replica paddle-wheelers cruise the river offering views of the arch. The Soulard district is home to barbecue restaurants and clubs playing blues music. Plan to come early and stay late to enjoy all that the area has to offer.

Additional convention information will be added soon.
