Hotel Information

NAFB has called the Westin Crown Center home since 1973, and many of the staff know our members by name and look forward to our return to the property each year. The adjacent Crown Center Shoppes offer a variety of shopping and dining opportunities while you’re in Kansas City. Nearby, Union Station offers exhibits, shopping, and family-friendly entertainment, and is the endpoint for the Kansas City Streetcar system. You also might check out the National World War I Museum and Memorial adjacent to the Westin. To book your room in the designated NAFB block at the Westin, follow this link to the 2021 Westin Crown Center Room BlockReservations must be made by Tuesday, October 12 to receive the NAFB discounted rate. The Westin hotel cancelation policy is 100% refund 48 hours prior to arrival.

COVID-19 Information

In an ongoing effort to protect the health, safety, and overall well-being of our members, NAFB continuously is monitoring the nationwide COVID-19 situation and the recent spread of the Delta variant leading up to its 2021 Convention (slated for November 17-19 at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri).

We are in consistent communication with both the Westin and the Kansas City Convention & Visitors Bureau to stay abreast of COVID-19 news and case numbers in the metropolitan area.
As of now, Kansas City, Missouri, is under a mandatory mask order for public spaces (including the Westin) where six feet of social distancing cannot be maintained through September 23, 2021, unless modified or rescinded. The order will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and may be modified as circumstances change based on guidance from public health officials and other medical experts.
When this mask mandate is lifted, the Westin (as part of Marriott Hotels) will adhere to its current mask policy: Marriott Hotels strongly encourage guests who have not been vaccinated to wear a mask and do not require guests who are vaccinated to wear masks.
In the event of developing coronavirus issues affecting an in-person meeting for 2021 NAFB Convention, the NAFB Board of Directors will make the final decision. To follow, members will be updated as soon as possible via email, social media, and updated information here on the NAFB website. 
Further questions regarding COVID-19 mandates and the 2021 NAFB Convention should be directed to NAFB Executive Director Tom Brand at or phone 816/431-4032, x103.
