Join us in Kansas City for an eventful, inspiring two days that will have you rethinking how we deliver maternity care. You will hear from some of our top authorities on our selected topics. You’ll enjoy our Midwestern hospitality, enjoy a taste of Kansas City, and meet colleagues from around the country who are ready to share ideas and exchange information that will benefit at-risk women and babies in our home communities.
The Forum will be held at the KCI Expo Center, located at 11730 N.W. Ambassador Drive, Kansas City, MO 64153. Directions can be found here.
Attendees will fly into Kansas City International Airport; the airport code is MCI. The airport is small, clean, modern, uncongested and easy to navigate. The 2013 CIMS Forum will take place at the KCI Expo Center located about 2 miles from the Kansas City International Airport. A free hotel shuttle will transport you to and from the airport. After you have claimed your baggage at the baggage claim area, pick up the courtesy phone (also located in the baggage claim area) for the Holiday Inn KCI Expo and call for the shuttle to pick you up (about a 10 min wait). The shuttle will also return you to the airport when you are ready to leave. You may also reach the shuttle driver directly at (816) 564-5475. The use of the shuttle is complementary for up to a 5-mile radius around the hotel (the airport is 2 miles away). All activities away from the hotel and Expo Center will include bus rental transportation.
Guests will stay at the Holiday Inn adjacent to the KCI Expo Center. Accommodations include free high-speed Wi-Fi (in the hotel not the Expo Center), heated indoor pool, a 24 hour fitness room, a business center, in-room refrigerators and microwaves by request (as long as they last) and 3 ATM machines are available (one in the hotel and two in the KCI Expo Center).
Rooms at the discounted rate are available until January 28th, so book your room today. A double room is $89.00 ($105 with taxes and fees) per night and can accommodate up to 4 comfortably with two queen-size beds.
You may book your 2013 CIMS Forum Holiday Inn hotel room online here or you may call 1-800-957-4654 to make your reservation. Be sure to mention that you are with the CIMS Forum when making your reservation so that you get the discounted rate.
Rooms are available on a first-come, first serve basis, so don't delay in booking your room!
We have an alternative nearby hotel if the Holiday Inn runs out of double rooms for our attendees that will match our Forum pricing. You may call Quality Suites Airport at (816) 464-5500. Make sure you mention that you are with the CIMS Forum to receive the discounted pricing.
(Quality Suites Airport is located at 11951 NW Ambassador Drive, Kansas City, MO, US, 64153)
Shuttle Phone # 1-816-564-5475
There is a complimentary shuttle available from the airport. However, it is important to note that CIMS Forum attendees need to use the Holiday Inn at KCI Expo shuttle, NOT the Holiday Inn-Express shuttle from the airport. If you take the Express shuttle, you will be taken to the wrong hotel, so please watch carefully for the correct transportation!
