The beautiful, newly renovated Julian Carroll Convention Center encompasses more than 65,000 square feet of premium convention space, including the 20,000 square foot River Ballroom, which can be divided into separate meeting areas. Smaller venues are available for groups of 30 or less. There are as many as 20 separate spaces at your disposal inside our riverside convention center.
The spaces and rooms at the Convention Center can be arranged for any size or type of gathering or event. The center's ballroom can accommodate as many as 1,000 for banquets or conferences.
Adjacent to the Convention Center is the Paducah Expo Center providing an additional 45,000 square feet of open space.
The Convention Center is nestled alongside the rolling Ohio River, which flows gently next to the beautiful venue. Within walking distance is the charming and quite accommodating city of Paducah with its vintage brick-paved streets and historic architecture. Only blocks away is the award-winning LowerTown Arts District featuring unique galleries exhibiting works of every description from oils on canvas to pottery to one-of-a-kind jewelry and bigger-than-life metal sculptures.
