The WHA's 2024 Conference will be held at the Sheraton at Crown Center in the heart of downtown Kansas City. Learn more about the hotel and its amenities through this link. The Sheraton is connected to the Westin Hotel through "The Link" -- an 880-foot elevated pedestrian path that is weather protected with lighted access. If operating at a moderate walking pace, it takes 7-10 minutes to move betwen the hotel's entrance and exit spaces for The Link. This estimate does not take into account the amount of time it takes to move from session rooms, exhibit halls, and meal functions, so please plan ahead for a relaxed trip across The Link.
