Fabulous venue!! Very clean and massive. Centrally located to a downtown packed with loads of restaurants to choose from. Plenty of space and a nice added touch with offering healthier food vendor options as well as typical stadium/CC food and alcohol stands with mixed drinks,...More

I was here for a business conference. The conference center is very large and can accommodate many people. However, it’s kind of separated. Some of the meeting rooms are on one side of the conference center and some are on the other. That may not...More

It was a great location for a large event with a variety of options. The handicapped accessible options were not very good. I was in a boot and the only option was a $50 rental wheelchair and one small elevator to get up to the...More

We apologize for the inconvenience while our expansion is underway. This renovation was essential for accommodating the increasing amount of conferences and conventions coming to Louisville. We hope you enjoy the finished product!

I saw the Kentucky International Convention Center and it was under construction. Didn't look like it was anything exceptional, but maybe that's what they're doing now... working to make it something exceptional... let's see.

It's a fairly ugly building for its age, which might explain why it's closed for the next two years for remodeling. One of the biggest problems, though, is that there is no parking at or near the facility. Unless you're staying in a local downtown...More

We feel this place is a bit of a concrete monstrosity. But cheer up folks because there are major renovations coming soon. This should be completed sometime in 2018. Expanded convention space plus more hotel rooms are necessary to keep up with competing cities. Hey,...More
