Join Us in Championing Northern Kentucky


It is no secret that events such as conventions, meetings, conferences and tradeshows generate enormous income to our community through spending in hotels, restaurants, attractions, retail shops and on services.  In turn, that spending supports not only the people who work in these industries, but nearly every business and trade in the area.

What is less widely known is that many of these events were initiated by a Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area resident(s) who is a member of the sponsoring group or association. If you belong to a group that hosts national or regional meetings, tournaments, conferences, reunions, symposiums or events, we'd like to talk with you!  As a local resident who knows, loves and can help to "Champion" the area to Meeting & Event Planners and other key decision makers your involvement can have enormous impact.

As a Champion, Your Involvement Generates Big Economic Impact.

An event with even a one-night hotel stay for 50 attendees boosts the Northern Kentucky economy by $14,667.  Over time, that impact is magnified. In 2012, Meetings & Conventions held in our three-county area generated a total economic impact of nearly $65 million for Northern Kentucky.

You already know that Northern Kentucky is a great place to visit for groups of all ages and sizes. Our first-rate attractions, dining, events and shopping - in addition to the superb facilities of the Northern Kentucky Convention CenterBank of Kentucky Center, NKU METS Center and a host of flexible hotel spaces - combine to provide the resources, venues and expertise to make any meeting, event or convention a success.

We are an ideal destination for groups of all sizes and types including:

  • vocational and professional associations
  • corporate training and meetings
  • sports tournaments and contests
  • religious and faith-based celebrations and conferences
  • military associations and reunions
  • fraternal and business organizations
  • competitive dance and choral conventions
  • collectors, hobby and enthusiast clubs & conventions
