Currently closed until Summer of 2018. Entire area is a MAJOR construction zone with nearby streets shut down until the convention center is completed. It is supposed to be VERY nice once it's finished, but right now it's a BIG headache ... for locals AND visitors!

We apologize for the inconvenience while our expansion is underway. This renovation was essential for accommodating the increasing amount of conferences and conventions coming to Louisville. We hope you enjoy the finished product! More

It's a fairly ugly building for its age, which might explain why it's closed for the next two years for remodeling. One of the biggest problems, though, is that there is no parking at or near the facility. Unless you're staying in a local downtown hotel where you can walk to an event held at this convention center, it's a... More

I say it is outdated and they know that which is why they will be beginning a two-year renovation process ending in 2018. We were at this convention center for the national Fine Arts Festival with the Assemblies of God Church system. The whole Convention Center was very accommodating for almost every act there. I enjoyed it a lot. It... More

We feel this place is a bit of a concrete monstrosity. But cheer up folks because there are major renovations coming soon. This should be completed sometime in 2018. Expanded convention space plus more hotel rooms are necessary to keep up with competing cities. Hey, looking at the drawings says it's going to be much more attractive to boot. I... More

The convention center is located in the heart of downtown Louisville. It is connected to the area hotel by a covered air conditioned walkway. The spaces were large and the facilities just need some updates.

We walked through her and followed the Sky Walk and was impressed with the size of this place. They were having a youth conference on when we were here.

Attended 2 trade shows within the Convention Center. Everything was fine and nice bathrooms, but they must waste SO MUCH MONEY keeping that place way to cold.
