National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis -- instead of Louisville -- this year

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The National FFA Convention has a new home this year.

The organization is holding its convention promoting agricultural education in Indianapolis.

It was held in Louisville last year and has been in the city off-and-on since 1999.

The FFA says Louisville does not have enough hotel and meeting spaces to suit the convention's needs -- that's why organizers say it will remain in Indianapolis until 2024.

This year's event is expected to attract more than 64,000 members.
