I saw the Kentucky International Convention Center and it was under construction. Didn't look like it was anything exceptional, but maybe that's what they're doing now... working to make it something exceptional... let's see.

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

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

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.
