We have quality facilities, abundant hotels, and we’re only one-day’s drive from 60 percent of the U.S. population. Louisville is affordable, family-friendly, drivable, walkable, and has great restaurants, clubs, and attractions. We work hard to ensure your event is a success.
Bring your sporting event to Louisville, we’ll help you celebrate success. We do it on a regular basis. We have the infrastructure, experience, expertise, and can-do attitude to help you achieve your goals. With the Kentucky Derby being the oldest, continuously run sporting event in America – begun in 1875 – we’ve been in the sports event business longer than any city in the U.S. And hosting sporting events is what Louisville does best. We have a passion and controlled urgency that fuels success for our events. If there’s one thing that our experience has taught us, it’s that sports can entertain. They can engage. And most importantly to us and our city, they can be used to promote active lifestyles.
We are just as committed to providing an outstanding experience for national governing bodies of sport and event rights holders, fans, media, and attendees. Let us show you how choosing Louisville as your host site is the first step in assuring a successful event.
