The perfect venue for our large wedding. Michael is very helpful, understanding and cooperative. He makes the wedding planning process a breeze. I highly recommend this venue! In addition, it is close to several hotels. We blocked rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn at 119th and I-35. This venue has everything that you need and more.
Wonderfully open roomReviewed on 5/18/2015 Amy A
The venue was amazing- just a large open room. There was plenty of parking! The staff was wonderful! The only issue was that 2 out of the 3 screens were not able to come down due to technical difficulties.
Great VenueReviewed on 11/10/2014 Dani H
My husband and I were just married in the BCC less than two weeks ago and loved our experience there! We looked around at so many different places and vendors and none of them could compare with the Ball's value and services. Mike was able to help put together a package that helped us stay within our budget but accommodate the 265 people that we had on our wedding day. I would absolutely recommend Mike and his team to any other couples that are looking for a great place to have their special day!
We had our wedding here and it was nice we had a problem with the table cloths we ordered but Michael fixed them right away. My problem was with the photographer provided with the package. She was terrible she showed up 2 hours before we asked her too and then came to us in the middle of the wedding asking for more money. When we finally got the pictures they were terrible. Completely unedited and she couldn't manage to pose us so we both looked good in a shot. They told us the photographer was this great experienced guy and then we got this lady. BEWARE!!!!!
Great Experience!Reviewed on 11/01/2012 Erin F
Ball Conference Center staff made our day special. Everyone was easy to work with and around throughout the process when needed. The Center was big enough and comfortable to hold all of our guests as well! We couldn't have asked for a better venue.
Awesome venue!!!!Reviewed on 6/04/2012 Michelle H
Awesome place to host a wedding reception. The things I loved the most about the Ball Conference Center were the seperate areas. When you walk into the BCC, it is a large waiting area. This is where we had the gift table, photobooth, app table and guest books at. Then you walked into the Ball room where we had the reception! We had the dance floor right in the middle of the room as your walked in, then tables on each side of the dance floor. The bridal table was just beyond the dance floor in the middle of the room. I felt like the center of attention! Very pleased with how everything went and the staff was awesome!
Amazing Customer ServiceReviewed on 11/01/2011 Kristen V
We had an amazing experience with the Ball Conference Center. Not only are they one of the cheaper vendors in the area, but the proceeds go to a great cause! Michael Nicoski, the director was so great to work with. He always was prepared and organized and very helpful! He made sure everything was set-up exactly the way you wanted it and always promptly returned emails and phone calls. The night of our reception ran so smoothly! The staff was very helpful, friendly, and did a great job of keeping on top of the schedule and assisting us and our guests! The facility is beautiful and very clean! We had an amazing experience and would highly recommend it to anyone!
Awesome reception venue!!Reviewed on 10/08/2011 Danielle H
We were looking for a place that was open and did not give the tight closed in feel. The location of the Ball Conference center is wonderful as it has close highway access and there are many hotels near by, some of which offer free shuttle service from the Ball Conference Center to the hotel. The front entrance provides a nice place for guests to socialize that is not in the main room where the tables and chairs are. The buffet has an option of being placed outside the main room as well, allowing for more space. The staff was very nice to work with and accommodate your individual needs. Although this place does not have the nice views overlooking downtown like some others do, but it is a perfect place to party if you're looking for a nice sized space to allow your guests to move freely and enjoy their evening. We've had nothing but good comments from guests about the evening, so check it out!
Beautiful Venue, wonderful to work withReviewed on 12/02/2010 Dann M
Michael was extremely accommodating, and working with him was a breeze. Ball was a beautiful place to have our wedding, and the fact that we got the entire building was a huge plus - we were even able to use a side room for baby-sitting. Even though it is called "conference center," it easily transforms into a formal banquet hall for a wedding reception. The price wasn't too horrible, and the fact that the venue is non-profit (the proceeds all go to charity) makes it even better. I would give it six stars if it were possible.

Michael was SO awesome to work with! We live in California but got married in Kansas and he was so accommodating. We were even able to get in on the Friday before to drop things off and start setting up. I would definitely recommend the Ball Conference Center to anyone!
