CENTER INFORMATION


The Northern Kentucky Convention Center is located in Covington along the banks of the Ohio River. It is situated at the heart of a rapidly expanding business and entertainment district just across a picturesque 19th Century suspension bridge from downtown Cincinnati.

This 204,000-total square foot multi-purpose facility has 110,000 sq. ft. of meeting, exhibition and social function space. The center is designed to make it as convenient and efficient as possible for meeting, conference and exhibition planners, and is directly connected to the Marriott at RiverCenter.

The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) is consistently ranked as one of the best airports in the world. Northern Kentucky is within a two-hour flight from 60 percent of the nation's population. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky is also within only a two-hour drive of the Port Columbus International Airport (CMH), Dayton International Airport (DAY), Louisville International Airport (SDF) and Lexington's Blue Grass Airport (LEX).

Northern Kentucky offers a blend of cosmopolitan sophistication and southern hospitality, and this is reflected in the staff's customer service focus. We will do our best to ensure a most successful event.
