A big move in a new Kansas City convention center hotel, a new partner for the Conference Center of Las Vegas and a new California hotel for Hilton’s Curio Collection are the meetings industry headlines to watch today. 

Kansas City Convention Center Hotel Moves Forward

Developers for a proposed convention hotel in downtown Kansas City have secured commitments for a loan and are under contract to purchase land for the project, The Kansas City Star reports.
