Event Estimate

Finding the perfect venue to host your special event is the biggest part of planning. You want somewhere with a central location for all of your guests and great in-house resources. If you’re looking for a banquet hall near Kansas City, you’ve come to the right place!

Overland Park Convention Center is a seasoned event venue serving the greater Kansas City metropolitan area. Below are the benefits of working with us for your next banquet event.

Why choose a banquet hall near Kansas City?

Central location

Arguably the best reason to book a banquet hall near Kansas City instead of in Kansas City is the central location for your guests. 

As the most populous Kansas City suburb, many guest attendees hail from Overland Park, Kansas, and other Kansas City suburbs just over the state border. Overland Park Convention Center is a fantastic event venue for residents of both Missouri and Kansas, and there are a lot of local amenities within OPCC and in the area.

With the title of Best Small Convention Center in North America in EXHIBITOR’s 2022 Centers of Excellence, OPCC’s 262,000-square-foot venue features 60,000 square feet of exhibit space with a connected 25,000-square-foot ballroom.

Access to great hotels
