I was here this past week for a conference. I love that the convention center is connected to the three hotels nearby with an indoor tunnel. It made not having to really worry about the what the weather was like a lot easier in packing....More

I was here for a business conference. The conference center is very large and can accommodate many people. However, it’s kind of separated. Some of the meeting rooms are on one side of the conference center and some are on the other. That may not...More

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!

I was there on winter time for the best convention ever. Very clean, nice location, close to hotels and restaurants.

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...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I say it is outdated and they know that which is why they will be beginning a two-year renovation process ending in 2018.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...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,...More
