  • Unlike Cincinnati and other CVBs, Northern Kentucky offers a Meeting Guarantee for meeting planners. If you aren’t completely satisfied with all aspects of your meeting space or convention facilities, the NKY CVB will write you a check for the value of one day’s rental at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center.
