Overland Park Convention Center in Overland Park, KS.


Top notch corporate event - An Eventective User from Olathe, Kansas

The Overland Park Convention Center is located in the heart of Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City. The Convention Center is connected to the Sheraton Hotel which makes it very convenient for out of down guests or if you want to offer your in town guests a place to stay depending on how much alcohol is consumed at your event. I planned a corporate holiday party for 500 guests. The Sheraton worked with us to offer discounts on hotel rooms. The Convention Center has multiple ballrooms which can be joined together when larger spaces are needed. The building itself is very state of the art and the modern feels makes it the perfect place for large events. I wouldn't recommend a wedding if you were looking for something intimate but for a corporate event it is perfect. The kitchen offers a wide variety of choices and the presentation is excellent, however I did feel that the food was a bit on the pricey side. They also do not allow you to bring in any outside food or drink so there were some dessert items that I couldn't bring in for our theme. I did rent a champagne fountain from them as well as several chocolate fountains and the rental prices were reasonable. The alcohol prices are on the high side. The staff was great to work with and were able to meet all my requests when it came to set up. I had a strings group come in and play during dinner while strolling in and out through the tables and the staff made sure there was plenty of room for the servers and the musicians. Overall I would recommend the Convention Center to any corporate group or to anyone having a large event.
