This is a great place to visit for large flea markets. The Carl Casper Auto Show is also held here, as well as the Kentucky State Fair, and several concerts and shows. This is a very versatile venue with plenty of places to explore and walk to. Kentucky Kingdom is also right next door. Has plenty of on site parking.... More

We recently attended Skills USA at the expo center and it was amazing. I've never been to such a huge exposition center. It was very clean and well-maintained. There were over 16000 people there and it was great!

We were here for the NASP tournament. There didn't seem to be enough people at the door to check in all the people (at least on Friday in the morning.) Bathrooms were clean and the concessions were good. No lines there. Thank you for hosting the National Archery in the Schools Tournament again!!

Wife and I arrived around noon and found first bargain. Large fern plants for 6@. She just had to have them. I love looking at people tools( not that I need more of either one). Very large displays and merchandise available to the people. Again I am not a shopper but enjoy watching the crowd.

A large flea market is held there each month except for August when the Ky. State fair is held. The antique section is always fabulous.

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
