Kentucky Convention Center

Location Louisville, Kentucky
Architect EOP + HOK
Contractor HUNT Construction Group

In 2018, the Kentucky Convention Center completed a two-year, $200+ million renovation and expansion, redefining the facility as a world-class public assembly venue in downtown Louisville. Increased exhibit space and meeting rooms, improved pedestrian flow and a clearly identifiable entrance with a spectacular glass façade are just a few of the major upgrades to this multi-purpose building. Track Rail glass railing provided by Trex Commercial Products lines the grand staircase, large stair landing, ramps and overlooks, allowing natural light from the updated glass façade to flow through the multiple levels of the facility.
