On-Site Registration

Arriving On-Site

One of your first stops in Kansas City will be at Municipal Arena for Global Finals on-site registration. This is where you will pick up your team’s credentials.

Registration will take place in Municipal Arena across the street from the Kansas City Convention Center (KCCC). There are several options for getting to Municipal Arena.

– Park in one of the public parking lots in the area. Click here to view and download a list of parking lots located near the KCCC.

– Park in Liberty Lot (1550 Liberty St., Kansas City, MO, 64102), where we have arranged free parking on a first-come, first-served basis with shuttles to the registration site. We suggest that teams be dropped at Municipal Arena and only the driver should go to Liberty Lot.

– Check into your housing accommodations and send a Team Manager to pick up credentials. Shuttle service at select properties within the Destination Imagination room block will be available to transport teams to Municipal Arena and back.

Credential Pick-Up

A Team Manager MUST pick up your team’s credentials at the Municipal Arena prior to prop load-in and access to the Convention Center. If you do not have your credentials, you will not be allowed to enter the event site.
