We’re thrilled to host the 88th National FFA Convention & Expo in Louisville, Ky.!
Whether your style is “downtown” or “down on the farm,” it’s a place that’s sure to show you something new. See world-class art, shopping, dining and attractions all in a place that’s just as walkable as your hometown. In fact, many of downtown’s best attractions are accessible by a covered skywalk or a free air-conditioned downtown trolley. All in all, you’ll find it open, accessible, friendly, entertaining and a great place to hang out while you celebrate all things FFA.
More about Louisville...
Feel at home in the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC). Plus, the convention’s main site is not only close to the airport and more than 4,000 hotel rooms, it’s also a short hop to some of Louisville’s best-known attractions.
Fresh off a $1.2 million update to the property and its amenities, the KEC is packed with new concessions, awesome food service including specialty coffee and kosher options, expanded gathering places and enhanced Wi-Fi.
In addition to the KEC, the convention and expo will also utilize several downtown event venues. A few convention programs and meal functions will be hosted downtown at the Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC). And the new downtown arena, YUM! Center, will be the location for the convention and expo concert. There will also be six hotels that will host events. Those include The Brown Hotel, The Galt House Hotel, The Hyatt Hotel, The Marriott Hotel, The Seelbach and The Crowne Plaza Hotel (which is located near KEC).
