Convenient public transportation via the SouthBank Shuttle connects these areas with ease.

The NKYCC is comprised of an Exhibition Center, Main Lobby and Conference Level which offer a combined 110,000 square feet of meeting, exhibition and social function space for up to 3,000 people. Multi-functional meeting rooms are designed to accommodate all types – and sizes – of meetings, conferences, exhibitions and trade shows.

Need more space? The NKYCC connects directly to the Marriott Cincinnati @ RiverCenter and additional meeting space.
