KEC Parking Info

The Kentucky Exposition Center has more than 19,000 parking spaces. Exhibitors can enter and park in the KEC lot free of charge on set-up days, January 8 and 9. Exhibitor should inform the gate attendant you are there to set-up as an exhibitor. Exhibitors who need to use the loading docks must report to the Marshalling Yard and pay applicable fees. Please see Marshalling yard information for further directions and cost.

There are five entry gates at the Kentucky Exposition Center. If you are planning to use a GPS, you will reach your destination when you arrive at Gate 1. However, for faster access into the facility, you may use Gates 2, 3, 4 or 6.
