Hotel Reservations

The League for Innovation has arranged for a discounted conference rate at the Sheraton Crown Center and the Westin Crown Center for STEMtech conference participants. Located in the heart of downtown Kansas City, the Crown Center is often called a city within a city. Three levels of great shopping and dining complement two of the city’s most luxurious hotels, exquisite office buildings, a residential community, and several entertainment attractions.

Mention the League for Innovation in the Community College STEMtech conference when making your reservation to secure a room in the conference block. There are a limited number of guestrooms available at the discounted conference rate.

Conference events will take place at both the Sheraton and Westin Crown Center. The Sheraton will host Registration, General Sessions, the Exhibition Hall, Concurrent Sessions, Poster Sessions, Roundtable Discussions, the 24-Hour Email and Internet Lab, and Hospitality. The Westin will host Track Keynote Sessions, Special Sessions, and Concurrent Sessions. There will be Speaker Support and Technical Support offices in both hotels to assist presenters as needed.

Cut-Off Date

The cut-off date for accepting reservations into the discounted room block is Friday, October 5, 2012.

Participants who make their hotel reservations using the above links are eligible to win a complimentary guest room during their conference stay. One lucky winner will be announced during the 4:30 PM Opening General Session, Sunday, October 28, 2012.

*Room rates are quoted exclusive of applicable state and local taxes (currently 15.225%) and hotel fees (currently $1.50 per night) in effect at the time of check in.


2012 STEMtech conference participants must make lodging reservations directly with the Sheraton Crown Center and/or Westin Crown Center. DO NOT BOOK A HOTEL ROOM with companies such as Convention Expo Travel or Convention Housing Services. These companies are contacting conference participants directly and advising that they officially represent the conference.

These companies are IN NO WAY affiliated with STEMtech or the League for Innovation. The League for Innovation is not responsible for reservations made with these companies.

Making reservations outside of the room block through third parties, meeting planners, housing bureaus, or online tools impacts the League for Innovation’s ability to meet its obligations and control attendee registration costs. It also places the League for Innovation in a weaker position to contract for future destinations that will best meet the needs of our members.
