SPOTLIGHT on KC Live! Signature Bash

The KC Live! Signature Bash is quickly becoming a favorite event style among large groups. For the second consecutive year, Cerner Corporation entertained 4,000 corporate clients at KC Live!, including five restaurants and two lounges, as well as a tented street festival showcasing tastings from nine District restaurants. While some guests chose to stay the evening in one location, others dined their way from restaurant to restaurant until a private concert from Three Dog Night drew guests into the center of the Live! Block. The dancing and celebrating continued as KC Live! venues welcomed guests to their choice of entertainment from country to Irish to 80’s - there is an after-party for everyone!

Is KC Live! located near any “anchor” hotels or convention centers in the area?
KC Live! is located across the street from the new Sprint Center Arena, two blocks from the Kansas City Convention Center and minutes way from seven major downtown hotels.
