Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes because this place is really big. We went here for the VEX Worlds Robotics championship. The exhibit area is so big and they even have multiple arenas for special events. I wish the parking is free (it costs $8 to park per day).

First off, I want to say that this venue was a nice improvement from the previous place that held this event. It is in a nice location and closer for most of the teams that compete at it. However, there are some things that should be worked on. 1. Cleanliness of facility. By saying this, I mean that you shouldn't... More

The MATS show was very good. The venue was nice but could use some improvement. They charge for parking, no problem. The problem, not all of the gates (cashiers) were open each day. On Friday morning of the show I was in line for 1 hour and 10 minutes just to get past the gate. Parking lots were full and... More

I came to the Eastern Gun Show at the Expo center, and was surprised at how large it was, and how nice the facilities are. There were at least 4 or 5 separate events this Saturday...the gun show, a golf show, a home show, a military how and a couple of others. Traffic was handled pretty well. Parking is $8/car.... More

We attended the 2015 National Farm Machinery Show at the Kentucky Expo Center. It was easy to find the Expo Center and the parking was well organized. The Expo Center is huge. Clean facility and friendly staff working at the show. Traffic in and out of the Expo Center moved along nicely. The only complaint would be the road construction... More

This is an extremely large convention center. We were here for a cheer competition. There were about 11000 cheerleaders participating plus they had at least 2 other events going on and there was plenty of room. Good food vendors. Not ridiculously expensive. Staff was friendly. Have to pay to park but that is pretty typical at competitions.

This venue is large and was plenty big enough for all the cheerleaders and families. I would think that there would be more hotels or restaurants "connected" to this venue. They did provide many food choices, but for 2 full days, I was tired of the same stands. The large arenas were set up nicely, but by sunday, the place... More

We visited the fair exposition center is full of free fun things for children to see and do. They have lots of things for sale and lots of food vendors. The cost of $10. dollars each to get in and then $8. to park seems like a good deal for a day of fun.
