Kentucky International Convention Center
Kentucky International Convention Centre which opened in 1977 on the site of Tyler Block was previously known as Commonwealth Convention Centre. It is situated in the Louisville area and is known for hosting events of that particular place.
Moving on, there have been several important events that have taken place in KICC which include 2002 Ohio Valley Conference, men’s basketball tournament and the NCAA Division II men’s basketball tournament from 1995 to 2000. Moreover, they have hosted huge events like the women’s basketball games of the University of Louisville since the 1989–90 season to 1992–93, and later they reorganized the same event in the 1994–95, 2000–01, and 2008.
Being the centre of all the biggest activities in LouisVille, the Kentucky International Convention Centre has over 6,300 hotel rooms which make it the most busy and one of the largest convention centers conduct recreational activities going on.
The building has been constructed following the art of the bourbon industry and local art. Furthermore, it hasn’t stopped expanding since its busy and ongoing schedules. Matt Swenson says “We had undeniable momentum to continuing growing our company and the namesake event [Connect 2019]. The trade show went so well that is the backbone of our event going forward. Being able to create that at KICC is something we will never forget.”
The KICC tells us that we need an expansion in convention centers for events like this to be held at much larger scales.
