The event and meeting industry honored both the Kentucky Exposition Center and the Kentucky International Convention Center with numerous prestigious awards this year, recognizing both venues as top destinations for conventions and meetings.

Both the Kentucky Exposition Center and the Kentucky International Convention Center were recognized as Centers of Excellence by Exhibitor Magazine. Small, medium and large convention centers were invited to apply, then evaluated based on the facility, functionality, location, accommodations, service, execution, expansion, upgrades, awards and industry participation.  This was the 2nd consecutive recognition from Exhibitor Magazine awarded to the Kentucky International Convention Center.

“At Kentucky Venues we strive to host the best events in the industry. From small meetings to large trade shows, we want all of our clients to have rewarding and successful events. When your industry recognizes your facilities and employees, it demonstrates that your business is on the right track,” said David S. Beck, President and CEO of Kentucky Venues.

The Kentucky International Convention Center won two additional awards, cementing its place as one of the top convention centers in the country. The Stella Awards, which recognizes organizations that consistently deliver quality service and innovation, selected the downtown convention center as their Gold Winner for the Best Convention Center in the Midwest. Additionally, the Kentucky International Convention Center won its second consecutive Reader’s Choice Award from ConventionSouth Magazine.

“Hosting successful events is always a team effort and I’m proud that our team at the Kentucky International Convention Center is being recognized for their innovation, customer service and excellence. Our goal is to help every event succeed and it is an honor to be recognized by our peers,” said Blake Henry, General Manager of the Kentucky International Convention Center.
