St. Louis, Missouri

The St. Louis Chapter and the 2013 Conference Committee invite you to join us in St. Louis, Missouri, the Gateway to the West! From its beginnings as a small French fur-trading town in 1764, St. Louis soon became a major embarkation point for westward travel and expansion. Lewis and Clark began their famous expedition in St. Louis, which was celebrated a century later by both the 1904 World’s Fair and Olympic Games. Charles Lindbergh’s quest to conquer the Atlantic also began here. Today, St. Louis reflects an elegant mix of the historic and modern. From stately homes to 1800s architecture, fine dining to the finest in down-home barbeque, ballet and Broadway to comedy clubs and blues bars. And, of course, the three B’s that define St. Louis: beer, baseball, and Boeing!

Our conference site is the St. Louis Union Station Hotel in the heart of downtown. Up until recently a premiere Marriott hotel, it has just been rebranded as a DoubleTree by Hilton. The hotel not only affords all the usual amenities, but as the former Union Station railway depot, it also features some spectacular historic architecture. The attached former train shed, now the site of numerous shops and restaurants, is also undergoing a renovation, much of which will have been completed or be underway when you arrive.

The 2013 Conference Committee has worked hard to make the 72nd International Conference an enjoyable and memorable experience. Come meet old friends, make new ones, and party in style in St. Louis!
