The Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center, managed by SMG, is the leading entertainment, sports, and culture venue in Eastern Kentucky. The 7,000 seat arena has hosted Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Larry the Cable Guy, Disney on Ice, and many other shows. However, when you go to the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center you are investing in much more than just a show. You are invesing in life long memories that you and your loved ones will treasure. An experience that you will never forget.
In addition to special shows, the facility hosts a wide variety of sports. The 2011 NAIA National Basketball Champion University of Pikeville Bears calls the building home. The East Kentucky Drillers, a member of the CIFL, plays in the Expo Center bringing indoor professional football to fans. The facility also makes a great location for the regional high school basketball tournament.
