“An agricultural hub that rose to prominence as the “Air Capital of the World,” meeting planners may be forgiven for not recognizing Wichita, Kansas, as a multifaceted meetings destination now brimming with cultural institutions and downtown dining and brewpub options for delegates.
“It’s a thrilling time in Wichita. You can feel the momentum and excitement about the city’s future,” said Moji Rosson, vice president of sales of Visit Wichita. “A city that was once home to cattle drives is now home to contemporary art museums, exciting new attractions, a revitalized downtown and an ever-expanding dining and brewery scene.”
The cultural credentials of the largest city in Kansas may be a pleasant surprise for planners of meetings and events, including:
- More than 33 museums
- 22 attractions
- 22 live theaters
- Eight shopping districts
- More than 1,000 restaurants
Wichita also presents its bounty at a Midwestern price point and features a downtown convention district with a walking path along the Arkansas River to a variety of shops, breweries, restaurants and public art installations.”
