Why is the Kentucky International Convention Center closed through summer of 2018?

The Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC) is undergoing a major renovation project that will expand its exhibit space by more than one-third — from 146,000 to over 200,000 square feet — within the existing footprint. The ballroom will increase by 10,000 square feet, up to 40,000 square feet. Click here for information about the new facilities available for booking in 2018.

The decision to close the facility was based on the safety and the quality of visitor experience, as well as the fact that closure will reduce construction time by approximately one year and ensure the project stays on budget.
