Currently closed until Summer of 2018. Entire area is a MAJOR construction zone with nearby streets shut down until the convention center is completed. It is supposed to be VERY nice once it's finished, but right now it's a BIG headache ... for locals AND...More

We apologize for the inconvenience while our expansion is underway. This renovation was essential for accommodating the increasing amount of conferences and conventions coming to Louisville. We hope you enjoy the finished product!

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.

I was there on winter time for the best convention ever. Very clean, nice location, close to hotels and restaurants.

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 attended a conference here and were pleasantly surprised. Convention center was easy to navigate. (backpacks not allowed inside).Seats were comfortable and upper level views were good.

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.

We walked through her and followed the Sky Walk and was impressed with the size of this place. They were having a youth conference on when we were here.

Attended 2 trade shows within the Convention Center. Everything was fine and nice bathrooms, but they must waste SO MUCH MONEY keeping that place way to cold.

I'm sorry I can't answer your question. When I visited we stayed at a local hotel and walked to center, so we did not park on site. I know the local convention bureau is only about 2 blocks from the center and you may want... More
