LCC Convention Center

The expanded Lexington Convention Center wraps Rupp Arena while remaining a separate building. The expansion created 100,841 square feet of exhibition space, 25,080 square feet of ballroom space, and 14 meeting rooms while opening the convention center to downtown.

We provided acoustics, audio-video, data, and security systems design for the project.

A big part of the strategy for the core AV systems was to provide central management and distribution. Everything streams over IP on the facility network. Digital signage is designed to tie into the facility scheduling system.
