Meeting and Event Venues
Emporia is centrally located and perfectly sized for intimate gatherings. Our community is a great fit for smaller groups, but we host mid-sized events as well, like the Dirty Kanza and Glass Blown Open tournament.
What makes meeting in Emporia special? We have some remarkable venues. But most importantly, your event will feel personal and your guests’ experiences will be unique. The Emporia Convention & Visitors Bureau can help you plan activities or help set up special group tours. Take a look at some of our tour ideas for your group, our nightlife options, or things to do.
We know it can be a challenge to plan an event. You need a state-of-the-art facility, but you’re not on a state-of-the-art budget. Emporia is incredibly affordable, and we are wired with Gigabit Fiber internet – a rare find in communities of our size.
Emporia has the ideal blend of fabulous facilities, reasonable rates, hospitality, history, and unique activities that will make your event memorable. Start exploring venues below, or download our Meeting Planner Brochure.
