Great place to visit. Has a selection of artwork and other Kentucky items in Your Frame of Mind Galleries. If in Lexington, please visit the gallery.

This was right across from the hotel and adjacent to convention/Duff Center. It has some fast food but some really cute, artsy shop with many Kentucky artists featured. If you are a wildcats fan you will find many shops to get your souvenirs and a great candy shop with free samples and friendly staff!

The convention center took excellent care of our conference. I was impressed! It is beautiful, comfortable, professional, and very nicely run. Great job!

This is a superb location for a conference and events. Have visited for a number of non-profit events and also MMA events through the BlueGrass Brawl. Great facilities, nice staff, and even some stores in the main lobby with some fun art pieces.

A mainstay for conventions in the Lexington area! Great meeting rooms and very helpful staff! Located in city center with plenty of parking adjacent thanks to Rupp Arena!

Tickets for all major events are sold here. The arena seems to me big enough- though there's been talk of remodeling in the past. The many stores here are a bit above my pay grade, but my favorite store ARTIQUE, has been abeautiful benefit to the area,( selling handmade art, sculpture, and handmade beauty.

Very nice facilities. Small food court/shopping area. Connected to the Hyatt. In the heart of downtown Lexington. Friendly staff. Well lit and we felt safe walking to and from our hotel.

We have been vendors at events at this location several times. Clean and well maintained, free vendor parking, even some under cover. Security people are a little gruff, but I guess watching other people have fun will make you crabby.

While parking is normally free, if there is an event at Rupp arena be prepared to pay $15 for parking and to have to park far away.
