We’re excited to announce that Destination Imagination’s Global Finals is moving to Kansas City, Missouri! For nearly 20 years, we have had the privilege of calling Knoxville, Tennessee home, and we are grateful to the hardworking University of Tennessee, Knoxville staff who helped us put on such a special, one-of-a-kind event for our participants each and every year.
With more than 1,400 teams now competing annually, this move will allow our organization to better accommodate attendees, including housing the event under one roof and providing a more easily accessible location for the many teams who travel to participate.
In addition, our organization wanted to use this opportunity to explore new ways for teams to showcase their creativity. Our new location will include a much-improved prop room experience where teams will have more space to construct props and the chance to display their creative designs beyond their eight-minute performance times.
Based on feedback we received about past Global Finals events, attendees will also be able to completely customize their accommodations, allowing for tailored experiences that meet each team’s needs.
Global Finals 2019, which will take place May 22‒25, will mark the 20th year of this annual, international event for creative problem solvers, and we look forward to celebrating with you in Kansas City!
