We have been coming to the OPCC for years and it is not the same anymore. We were told that someone new took over as head of the security last year and made all kinds of changes. One being, they now block off all the parking right off of College Blvd. This would be fine if they didn't book several... More

I have been here a few times for different conventions/ giant consignment sales. Parking is usually fairly easy to find - and free. The space itself is huge but easy to navigate. Workers have been friendly and helpful. I would definitely return for future events.

Its nice enough as convention centers go. Wealthy investors who live miles to the south, would love for you to think its ideal. It is NOT. There is nothing around it. No art, no culture, few things to do. Its so far South of the city center and most of KC's activity. Unless you are visiting Sprint, why come?

Big crowds pose a problem getting out of the Convention Center. We tried to go east to Roe with no better results

I Travel all over North America doing presentations on the latest in Automotive technology. I have NEVER attended Visionkc on the first weekend of march every year and haven't seen the most organized, helpful staff in North America. I never even heard " let me go find out". Every staff member knows what to do and How to do it.... More

I was part of a business meeting held here. The convention center provided lunch. They were specifically asked about allergens in the food due to a serious food allergy and replied that none of the allergens were present when visual inspection showed this was not at all the case on two of the six items offered. If I hadn't been... More
