KCADC’s Annual Meeting celebration is the most prominent and well-attended business event in the Kansas City metropolitan area – drawing 1,600 of KC’s top corporate and civic influencers.

"The Big WHY” will celebrate the many reasons why our KC region is enjoying an unprecedented wave of innovation, growth and opportunity. Use #TheBigWhyKC to engage with us leading up to and during our 41st annual luncheon.

Walter Isaacson, best-selling author, historian and journalist is this year’s featured speaker. He has studied history’s most creative geniuses — Einstein, Franklin, and Jobs. Now, in his new book, Leonardo da Vinci, Walter will share his insight on why passionate curiosity led these figures to challenge the status quo –and how we can learn to recognize the power of creativity to change the world.

In partnership with Rainy Day Books, KCADC will provide each attendee with Walter Isaacson’s new hardcover Leonardo da Vinci, being published in October.
