Some of Missouri’s biggest cities have long been known as iconic gathering places. In the era of 19th-century western exploration, St. Louis was considered the "Gateway to the West" and saw countless tradesmen, settlers, adventurers and more come through to explore new frontiers. Historic Union Station took many travelers by rail through town as well.

In present day, millions come to St. Louis to explore its history, conduct business and visit the Gateway Arch, which documents the city’s rich history. Kansas City is also a meetings powerhouse in Missouri. Its growing sports culture and venues provide a wealth of opportunities for impressive events, as does its F&B and more. Missouri also is home to the Lake of the Ozarks region, where vacationers and corporate retreats alike flock to bask in the natural beauty of lake life.
