ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- The American Society of Association Executives will be hosting a conference in St. Louis beginning Saturday.

The ASAE conference will bring 5,500 meeting planners from around the country, and if they enjoy their stay, they could convince thousands more to visit St. Louis for years to come.

According to the St. Louis Convention and Visitor’s Commission, if the 5,500 ASAE conference attendees enjoy their stay in St. Louis, one in five will bring another convention to the gateway city. 
 
Increasing the number of conferences held in St. Louis will affect local business and local jobs. From more hotel rooms booked to increased restaurant reservations and taxi trips, meaning millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs for St. Louis.
