LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Dec. 27, 2013) — Responding to trends in the meeting and event market, the Kentucky International Convention Center, in partnership with its exclusive hospitality partner, Centerplate, will be introducing a new flexible quick-serve restaurant in 2014 with free Wi-Fi, healthier options and faster speed of service, to cater to convention guests during peak convention times.
“Meeting planners and guests are looking for fast, flexible concepts and healthier options,” said Linda Edwards, vice president of sales of the Kentucky State Fair Board.
The new “grab-and-go” restaurant will replace the current Wolfgang Puck Express, which will close at the end of the year for the conversion. When the new restaurant re-opens in early 2014, convention guests will have the option of a quick-serve breakfast alternative, as well as an updated lunch menu with salads, sandwiches, and pizza by-the-slice. The space will also be made available as an additional event space for functions and private parties.
The Kentucky International Convention Center offers 300,000 feet of space and hosts a wide variety of events. More than 300,000 visitors attend conventions, trade shows and meetings annually at downtown Louisville’s largest meeting space.
