NCA Attendees: It'll Soon Be Time To Tell Us What You're Hungering For

Calling all NCA Conference attendees: Tomorrow, you'll receive a survey from us asking what scrumptious meals you'll be having during our time together in Kansas City.

We're hungry just writing this!

So look in your email box tomorrow to select your meal options. If you're still thinking of coming to the conference, please register here to join us in Kansas City!


Welcome To Rabbitville ... Err, Kansas City

Kansas City is home to the 2019 Annual Conference of the National Costumer Association.

But ... did you know the following?

  • Swope Park, at 1,805 acres, is more than twice the size of Central Park in New York City.
  • Kansas City is the 29th most populated metropolitan area in the US.
  • The scoreboard at Arrowhead Stadium was the first to transmit instant replay.
  • Kansas City has more barbeque restaurants per capita than any other US city.
  • The Country Club Plaza, opened in 1922, was the country’s first suburban shopping district.
  • Possum Trot and Rabbitville were early name suggestions for the city. Town of Kansas was agreed upon, which later became City of Kansas and then Kansas City.
