I say it is outdated and they know that which is why they will be beginning a two-year renovation process ending in 2018. We were at this convention center for the national Fine... read more

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 hotel where you can walk to an event held at this convention center, it's a... More

I say it is outdated and they know that which is why they will be beginning a two-year renovation process ending in 2018. We were at this convention center for the national Fine Arts Festival with the Assemblies of God Church system. The whole Convention Center was very accommodating for almost every act there. I enjoyed it a lot. It... More

We feel this place is a bit of a concrete monstrosity. But cheer up folks because there are major renovations coming soon. This should be completed sometime in 2018. Expanded convention space plus more hotel rooms are necessary to keep up with competing cities. Hey, looking at the drawings says it's going to be much more attractive to boot. I... 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.

Attended a conference at the convention center. The center covers a full two blocks and is divided into two buildings. Entrances are marked based on different features it faces such as riverside, Parkside, dockside, etc. There are meeting areas on three separate levels but it was difficult to find the rooms on the lower levels as the sign for them...

While this is a huge building and could be cool it definitely needs work. The air conditioning in the big ballrooms was cranked so high that I was freezing cold. The signs were unclear and navigation was difficult. I hope this building gets a remodel soon.
