A very nice place to see a concert. There isn't a bad seat in the building. My only complaint is it was very hot.

This arena is a little on the small side, but it is big enough for the town that it is located in. The Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center could really be a great place, if the powers that be would allow shows that actually make money. The majority of what is there is basketball or entertainers that the city officials want... More

I've attended a few shows at the Expo Center. It seems that aside from those few, there is a lack of good artists..no variety. Mostly country and Christian. Very few good rock shows. The security are horrible as well. They have ugly attitudes, on some power trip, and make it impossible for folks to even get close enough to get... More

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a conference at this lovely Expo Center. The rooms were all well equipped, staff was great and had drinks and food when we needed it. Lovely and convenient - within walking distance of the major hotels.

Like all college grad ceremonies. Long, hot, crowded. Nothing bad here, just not exceptional. This is the second college graduation ceremony I have been to here.

This venue was great. I was here for a conference, and the city rolled out the red carpet. Very impressive. The level of service and hospitality rivals major cities. Only downside was poor signage - it's not on the 'main drag', nor is it connected to the 2 larger hotels, so I had a difficult time figuring out how to... More

If you can catch a decent family show playing at the Expo center ,this is the place to be. The seating is based on what you can afford to spend. I have been here for the Circus as well as Disney on Ice. Both shows were wonderful and the seating we had was great. The sound and lighting is very... More

Wife and I made first trip here Sept 2014 to see Chicago the band. No bad seats. Parking is close. Very friendly staff and management. This venue, while fairly new, is a gem for concerts as they have lots of drinks and facility is certainly user friendly. We'll return. If you're staying over night, book nearby new Hampton or Hilton... More

Just returned from seeing Chicago in concert. Beautiful venue. Ease of access with free parking close by site. All seats are chair backs. Plenty of beverages available. Food also. Staff friendly. Would definitely go back. We hope Pikeville will attract some great acts in 2015. The town is lovely. The drive down 23 was gorgeous with awesome mountain views.
