Every year, Kearney hosts more than 1,350 events. One reason so many planners choose Kearney is because it has the best meeting facilities between Omaha and Denver, all in a convenient, easy-to-access location.


Now Open

The best meeting facilities just got better with the completion of the Crowne Plaza and Younes Conference Center North. Crowne Plaza includes 172 sleeping rooms and offers an indoor water park, restaurants, and shopping. Younes Conference Center North adds 75,000 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space to the Younes Campus, which is known for its top-notch facilities and amazing event and catering staff.

With a total of 150,000 square feet of flexible space and over 900 hotel rooms, the Younes Campus makes a perfect place to gather for meetings of all sizes.

With ample parking, electric charging stations, and easy access to lodging and amenities, Kearney has big-city offerings, with the small-town hospitality that the Heartland is known for.

The staff at the Younes Campus are some of the most dedicated in the industry and are committed to providing the highest level of service to all events.
