Louisville Named 2020 Host for IAEE’s Expo! Expo!


Louisville, Ky. – The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) announced that Louisville will be the host city for the 2020 edition of Expo! Expo!

It will be the first time that Louisville hosted Expo! Expo!, the trade show industry gathering that brings together a mix of show organizers, meeting planners and suppliers.

Expo! Expo!, however, will take place at the city’s more intimate downtown venue, the Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC), and will have the Omni Louisville and Louisville Marriott Downtown as host hotels. The KICC is No. 75 on the WTCC, and is in the midst of a major renovation and expansion. The Omni is still under construction, so downtown Louisville will definitely have a new and exciting look to it when the Expo! Expo! crowd arrives in late 2020.

“Being able to explore the new convention center, as well as all the other incentives being developed by the Louisville CVB, is something IAEE members can look forward to and Expo! Expo! is the perfect opportunity for it,” said IAEE President & CEO David DuBois.

Expo! Expo! drew some 2,200 attendees last year in Anaheim. The 2017 show takes place November 28-30 in San Antonio at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
