Armory STL

We’re excited that the inaugural innovate conference will be one of the first events at the Armory STL. The Armory, as an affiliate with Green Street Real Estate Ventures, is being revitalized as a multi-venue entertainment destination. The Armory was built in 1938 for the 138th Infantry of the Missouri National Guard and has since served as a large-scale gathering place for a variety of purposes throughout the years. Stories and legends abound; it hosted a variety of concerts and sporting events and served as a tennis hub for historically legendary players such as Wimbledon Champions Jimmy Connors, Arthur Ashe and Ken Flach. You can learn more about the incredibly engaging and exciting plans for the Armory by visiting their website and reading the latest press stories here:
