Louisville has not one, but TWO convention centers: one adjacent to the airport and one in the center of downtown
The Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC), located in the heart of downtown within walking distance of iconic attractions and distilleries, recently underwent a $207M expansion and renovation.
The Kentucky Exposition Center, the sixth largest facility of its kind in the United States, is located adjacent to the Muhammad Ali Louisville International Airport.
The KFC Yum! Center, a multi-purpose arena located downtown, has a wide variety of spaces available to suit the needs of any large corporate gathering or event in addition to sporting events and concerts.
Other venues include the legendary Churchill Downs, the Frazier History Museum, the one-of-a-kind Muhammad Ali Center, the Kentucky Derby Museum, Louisville Slugger Field, and many more.
GBAC Star™ Facility Accreditation
In October 2020, the Kentucky International Convention Center and Kentucky Exposition Center became the first facilities in Kentucky to receive the internationally recognized Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation, the gold standard on outbreak prevention, response and recovery.
Since that time numerous hotels and venues throughout Louisville have also earned or are in the process of receiving the accreditation, including the Galt House Hotel, Kentucky Center for the Arts, Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and the Kentucky Derby Museum.
