This year’s conference is split between two locations in beautiful downtown Topeka, the Ramada Topeka Downtown Hotel and Convention Center and Townsite Tower. The event is chock-full of the learning and networking opportunities you expect, plus so much more.

Downtown Topeka is the heart of the community and serves as the mirror that reflects, demonstrates, and celebrates the diversity of its citizens. Townsite Tower, located at 534 S. Kansas Ave., boasts two ballrooms – Townsite 16, located on the top floor of the second tallest building in the city, and Avenue Ballroom, located on the building’s first floor. Both ballrooms are newly renovated and feature state-of-the-art amenities. The Ramada Topeka Downtown, 420 SE 6th Ave., is located steps away from downtown Topeka and is just down the street from Townsite Tower.
