We were there for the Skills USA competition for college and high school students. Lots of buildings and rooms with things to see.

This is an amazing facility to host your large shows. Meeting rooms, conference rooms and show space that goes on and on. Easy to get to from major highways and numbers of hotels near by, this is a great venue..

Bring good walking shoes. You will need them. The food is over priced and just average, but the food staff were all very friendly. We were here for VEX robotics - it was crowded, but basically well managed. One complaint, it was very hard to get seats in the center arena. Sections that looked connected from a distance were actually... More

Great place! Really, really huge. Seems well organized for large groups. Everyone is helpful. The food at The Grille needs improvement.

I, and some other 80,000 people, packed the centre in May for the NRA convention. Was there all three days and I'm still not sure I saw everything, even though a detailed map of all the exhibits was provided. Friday morning, crowded, Saturday, standing room only. Sunday, a little quieter. The complaints about the parking are unfortunately justified. Getting in... More

We visited this past weekend for the Lego KidsFest and the first thing I noticed was the parking is very confusing. There are tons of things right there together and no real descriptions in the parking lots of where you are going. We asked a couple people working in the parking lot to direct traffic and they were not exactly... More

We visited for NRA. Place was clean. Good for exhibitions. Staff friendly. Parking was problem. Grass and mud after rain. So pray it doesn't rain or you will ruin clothes and shoes.

We attended the NRA 2016 Annual Meetings (convention) along with 81,000 other freedom loving individuals and had a complete ball! We attended all 3 days, all day long. It was undoubtedly one of the best conventions we've attended. As far as the Ky Fair and Expo goes, the staff was really good and much improved from my last visits there... More
