Louisville is synonymous with thoroughbred racing, beautiful countryside, and Southern charm. Its solid reputation as a top meeting destination comes from its accessibility, affordability, and outstanding meeting facilities. The Kentucky Exposition Center features 1 million square feet of ground-level exhibit space under one roof. Premium downtown meeting space at the Kentucky International Convention Center has expanded to nearly 300,000 square feet. And Louisville continues to soar, with more than $650 million planned tourism infrastructure projects, including three major attractions slated to open in the next two years.
