I love the size of the Exposition Center. It has the feel of a large arena, without feeling lost in a huge space. I like how close concessions are, no matter where you sit. Same for the bathrooms. Just a nice space all over.

I went there to see a basketball tournament when I was in college. The place isn't that bad; just that the tournament didn't draw enough fans to justify having it at the expo center. Last time I was there was over two years ago, but that option isn't listed.

We have been to this facility for a couple of events. We saw Ricky Skaggs in concert and last night we saw Ted Nugent in concert. It is a very nice facility to go and watch events. Actually, the community of Pikeville, KY is very nice. It is a very clean community and everyone we have met are very nice.... More

I have attended concerts, sporting events, and other events at the Expo Center. The facility is great with lots of parking. Downtown hotels are within walking distance. Great venue, but I'd like to see the Expo Center offer more events.

I have seen several concerts here and none of them have been bad. There is not a bad seat in the house. The drinks and snacks are a little pricy

We attended a banquet and graduation at the Exposition Center and were very impressed with the facility. The food was good and the decoration was very nice. The graduation the next day was beautiful. Very nice place for just about any event.

We saw Dwight Yoakam and Lee Ann Womack on 4/16/16. The sound was terrible on the side balconies. The artists did great, but it was very disappointing that we could not understand what they were saying. Also, need better controls on alcohol purchases. They were serving drinks to people who were well past their limit. Need to start stamping people's... More

We are very sorry for the experience you had. We hope you will give us another chance. The sound issue is handled by the artist, they bring in a person for this duty. When it comes to alcohol, we will cut a person off if they are not able to handle another drink. Please feel free to reach out to... More

I have attended several concerts at the expo, it's kind of small, but a very enjoyable place to go to. They offer a different select of venues for any age and or gender.
