You’re gonna love the many ways we can make your convention or conference memorable! The massive exposition hall can accommodate a room full of speedboats, hundreds of booths, and thousands of visitors.

The Paducah McCracken County Convention & Expo Center strives to provide superior meeting, convention, event, and exposition facilities serving western Kentucky and adjacent state’s four rivers region. The expansive Julian Carroll Center maintains continued support for the enrichment and growing vibrancy of the downtown and riverfront business community and will do so without compromising the fiscal integrity or public image of the Center.
