Event Space tour pictures: SQL Saturday – Kansas City

08/06/2010

Pre-event tour

When planning a SQL Saturday event, you should know all the relevant details prior to booking that space, as well as taking a tour of it with your team 30-60 days prior in order to get a feel for/discuss how things need to be set up. The SQL Saturday KC volunteers took a tour of Cerner’s Riverport Campus last week. While I had been there once before for a vmware user group conference, I needed to tour again so we could determine the event flow / configurations.

Background on the Cerner Riverport Campus

In North Kansas City, there’s a cluster of gambling Casinos, including Harrah’s, Ameristar, Isle of Capri. Sam’s Town was another gambling spot, but closed in 1998.  I’m not 100% sure, but I believe Cerner purchased the property then. They re-purposed this facility for training, office space, and so on.  However, they kept the character of the place by leaving a lot of the casino signs, etc intact!

The pics!

This place is huge–  approx 28,000 sq ft , but I wanted to share some of the pictures we took of the facility so you can get just as excited about this event as we are!! Check out our speakers , submit your own session , and/or register today!
