Preferred in the Midwest

Northern Kentucky (NKY) is a thriving area located just across the river from downtown Cincinnati, offering big-city attractions and spectacular views of the Cincinnati skyline. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport - within a two-hour flight of 60 percent of the U.S. population - is just minutes from the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, top-rated area hotels, inspired off-site meeting locations, and an array of distinctive restaurants.

The Northern Kentucky Convention Center is situated at the heart of a rapidly expanding business and entertainment district, with some 1,200 rooms nearby, including the connected Marriott at RiverCenter, and upwards of 7,000 hotel rooms available in the region. The convention center boasts more than 110,000 square feet of meeting, exhibition, and social-function space, including 10 flexible meeting rooms totaling 13,288 square feet. The center is specifically designed to accommodate all types and sizes of meetings and exhibitions.

Unlike many convention and visitors bureaus, Northern Kentucky offers a Meeting Guarantee for planners. If you aren’t completely satisfied with your meeting space, NKY Convention & Visitors Bureau will write you a check for the value of one day’s rental at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center. Additionally, the NKY CVB offers a seamless proposal and single contract, including everything from convention-center space to guest-room accommodations. Because of this commitment to customer satisfaction, NKY is highly ranked by planners who choose Northern Kentucky as their preferred Midwest meeting site.

NKY also offers plenty of off-site and leisure options. From the Newport Aquarium and the Newport on the Levee Entertainment District, to Cincinnati Reds baseball, stunning golf courses, and much more - Northern Kentucky is an exciting meeting destination.
