Overview of the KICC renovation and tour of the newly renovated space.

The Kentucky International Convention Center reopened recently— ending a two-year exile of the building while it underwent a $207 million renovation and expansion.

The new rendition of KICC houses nearly 1 million square feet of space across three main floors and has booked 120 groups to date, including 84 conventions with an estimated economic impact of $246 million, according to Louisville Tourism officials. During its two-year closure, the west end of the building was demolished and rebuilt with large windows and skylights, providing a focus on glass, open space, modern technology and natural light.
