Those who plan public shows, for example comedy shows, concerts, etc., have found that both the city of Collinsville and Gateway Center accommodate their gatherings in more ways than one. Whether it’s the 800 hotel rooms, the 50,000 square feet of flexible meeting and exhibition space, the wide range of restaurants, the family-oriented attractions or the proximity to big city amenities, your attendees will rave about their experience.

Gateway Center offers ample free parking, modern technology and amenities, convenient access to five major interstate highways and a safe small-town atmosphere.

Most of Collinsville’s lodging is within walking distance of the convention center. Our overnight guests will find single and family units, from economy to full-service properties. Several of the hotels feature swimming pools, restaurants and other amenities. To facilitate large group accommodations, the professional staff at Gateway Center can provide housing assistance, spouse programs, special events and registration material.

In addition to convenient lodging, Gateway Center is close to many American and ethnic restaurants, nightclubs, a horse racing track, a water park and the world-class historical attraction, Cahokia Mounds. You can access for more information about the area. Of course, if you are looking for even more to do while you are here, St. Louis is only a 12-minute drive away.

Gateway Center strives every day to provide a total experience for your attendees from the time they arrive in our building to the time they leave.
