Louisville lands big event for renovated convention center downtown

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville has landed a big event for its renovated convention center.

The TEAMS 18 Conference and Expo will be held in Louisville in the fall of 2018. It will be the first large industry trade show held at the renovated Kentucky International Convention Center downtown.

The TEAMS conference is the world's largest gathering of sports-event organizers.

"If you enjoy watching sporting events ... someone behind the scenes had to organize that sporting event, and those are the people that attend the TEAMS Conference and Expo," said Timothy Schneider, the publisher of Sports Travel Magazine.

When the convention center is complete, it will have another 200,000 square feet of exhibit hall space and a 40,000-square-foot ballroom.
