The Hughes Metropolitan Complex makes everything low stress, easy and comfortable. Our trained professional staff will be there for you every step of the way, and the unique qualities of our facility allow for flexibility in your choices.

One of the best features of the Hughes Metropolitan Complex is the location — and being just a mile north of the main Wichita State University Campus is only a small part of that. Close proximity and quick access to I-35 and I-135 makes getting to and from the venue a pain-free experience. It also provides easy access to a wealth of business services that go hand-in-hand with many events.


  • Are your attendees coming from out of town? A wide selection of hotels in all price ranges are a quick drive away.
  • Will you be catering lunch on site, or will attendees be on their own during a break? We can help with either. Access to everything from fast food to fine dining is nearby. Coffee service? We can provide that, as well, at a price that is very competitive.
  • Will your guests be eager to do a little shopping? We’re right down the road from some of the best shopping areas in town.

Perhaps the most popular feature of the Hughes Metropolitan Complex is the parking. It’s right next to the building — and it’s free. There are 1100 parking spaces. No steps. No elevators. It doesn’t get much easier.
And speaking of no steps or elevators, that goes for the entire venue. Comfortable and accessible —
for everyone.
