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.

The staff and facilities were fantastic. Pricing was reasonable and the staff was very attentive to all of my needs. I was there for a week and an escalator going up to the second and third floor was broken every day I was there. It was really quite embarrassing for the facility. For such a nice place, some attention to... More

Every September Scarefest is held here, a horror and comic convention. It's a great venue that celebrity guests, convention goers, and vendors enjoy for easy of access and size. Big enough to be big but small enough to be intimate. There is a food court attached to the center and shops as well. Not a lot of selection in the... More

I went to my husbands office Christmas party in one of the ballrooms. The buffet was decent. The food could have been better quality. The beef was fatty and not pleasant to eat. Green beans average, pasta decent. Chicken was ok, but having stuffing inside wasn't what I want right after Thanksgiving. Maybe procuito and cheese would be a better... More

I had a business meeting here. The facility is very nice, but I didn't see any recycling bins for paper, bottles, or cans. On the first day there was no water in the meeting rooms and not that many drinking fountains. They did correct that and there was water on the days following. I am not sure where the food... More
