Paducah McCracken County Convention & Expo Center

Meeting Facilities 

Enjoy over 90,000 square feet, a true convention complex, all under one roof! The Paducah McCracken County Convention & Expo Center is set along the confluence of the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers in historic downtown and adjacent to the Lower Town Arts District.

The Julian Carroll Convention Center features 52,000 square feet of breakout, pre-function, and ballroom space, specifically created for ease of use and creative planning. The Ballroom, alone, seats 800 on rounds, 1900 theatre style, or over 100 exhibits. 13 breakout rooms and plentiful pre-function space offer flexibility in planning.

The Bill & Meredith Schroeder Expo Center boasts nearly 40,000 square feet of drive-in capable, multi-purpose real estate which is adept at showcasing over 200 exhibit booths, or a fleet of private airplanes, or an ice skating rink, or your very own version of team building exercises.

Paducah's Dome Pavilion provides additional exhibition space nearby. Even the parking lot of the Paducah McCracken County Convention & Expo Center is a viable space, large, flat and easily accessible.

2000 hotel rooms are available within 5 miles and many of the national brand represented like Marriott, Hilton, IHG, LaQuinta, Drury, and Choice. In the spring of 2017, the brand new Holiday Inn Downtown Riverfront (124 rooms) opened right next door to the Convention & Expo Center.

Located in Historic Downtown, you'll find arts, restaurants and more within walking distance. Discover Downtown Paducah in this local inspiration guide!
