Located in the heart of downtown St. Louis, America’s Center features 502,000 square feet of prime exhibit space and is close to hotels, dining, attractions, shopping, and public transportation.
Steps from the convention center’s doors, visitors will find Gateway Arch National Park, a greenspace located on the west bank of the Mississippi River. It’s home to the Gateway Arch – at 630 feet it’s the tallest man-made monument in the United States. Take a tram ride to the top.
America’s Center is located about 14 miles from St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL), with several public transportation options readily available. MetroLink light rail stations are accessible from Terminal 1 (exit door 1, ticketing level, east of all ticket counters) and from Terminal 2 (exit door 12, through the parking garage).
Please use the Washington Avenue entrance of the America’s Center when you arrive at SC21. There will be a few different queues for vaccine verification depending on whether you’re from the U.S. and using the CLEAR app or if you are from outside the U.S. and providing documentation.
SC Conference staff will be at the entrance and ready to guide you to the correct queue. Once you’ve provided your vaccine verification, you’ll be directed to the Plaza Lobby where you can pick up your registration badge.
