“Huge facility & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

We were there for a volleyball tournament, and the facility is very large. In the lobby area, they had multiple food stations, and not the "run of the mill" stuff, but very good. The lines were long, but that's to be expected when you have that many people. While there is quite a bit of parking, they have installed the new CC machines, and a lot of people didn't know how to use them, so traffic really backed up.

It is right off the freeway, so easy to get to, and close to Churhill Downs. There are also half a dozen or more hotels within a few blocks, which makes it convenient.

“Parking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2012

Great venue but parking is confusing! The hotel is close enough to walk in better weather!

“Nice venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Nice venue for a consumer show. Clean, large, well maintained restrooms. Down side was high fees charged for forklifting skids to the booth. I may not return due to that factor - too cost prohibitive. Only had one concession stand window open the first 2 days of the show & service was very slow.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

some things are fun at expo center but it costs 8.00 to park! Ridiculous. If you have a show or entrance price it can become a very pricey day for a family of 4.
