Leaving Las Vegas: Louisville Lands EXHIBITORLIVE
KICC to host one of North America’s largest exposition industry trade shows
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (November 8, 2022) – Louisville has been selected to host EXHIBITORLIVE, America's premier conference and exhibition for trade show and corporate event professionals, in 2023. The event is relocating the show to Louisville after meeting in Las Vegas for over 30 years.
Exhibitor Group, the world’s leading provider of specialized skills and knowledge to trade show marketers, will hold their annual show April 23-27, 2023, at the Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC).
Event organizers expect the five-day show to be attended by nearly 5,000 exhibit and event managers as well as marketing and communications experts, generating an estimated $3.35M in economic impact for Louisville.
“Louisville has steadily become a sought-after destination for our affordability, walkability and central location within a day's drive of over half the U.S. population,” said Cleo Battle, Louisville Tourism President and CEO. “Louisville is excited to welcome EXHIBITORLIVE attendees to experience the city’s unique brand of Southern hospitality, iconic attractions, Urban Bourbon Trail® and rich culinary scene.”
In addition to the educational components and networking events, EXHIBITORLIVE features North America's largest exhibition of trade show and event products and services and has consistently ranked as one of the Top Ten Shows for Net Buying Influence by Exhibit Surveys, Inc., since the rankings were last compiled in 2019.
“We’re thrilled to make the move to Louisville in 2023,” remarks John Pavek, chief client officer, Exhibitor Group. “After an extensive search process, we’ve discovered a destination that will provide the infrastructure, service and benefits that will offer attendees and exhibitors an enhanced EXHIBITORLIVE experience.”
