Great venue for a large group. Plenty of food vendors inside center. Lots of walking if you have an event here. The place is immense. Our shuttle bus always seemed to let us off at a stop farthest away from our inside destination.

We went to south wing to enjoy the flea market. Had a great time. Everything was clean and enjoyed, lots of walking but something for everyone. Food, jewelry cloths, and old finds. Things for everyone.

The KY Expo Center is home to the best NASP archery show in the world each May. The Center and its staff host a wonderful exciting event that would be ideal for any family to be part of when they could. Great Facility!!

Attended the VEX Robotics Tournament here. The Expo Center was very clean, organized and parking was easy. Expo people were friendly and helpful. Only suggestion for improvement is adding more food options.
