Meeting & Event Planners

The fact that Elizabethtown is a phenomenal place to live, work and play is well-known among its citizens. But, did you know that our location, amenities, shopping, unique attractions and recreational opportunities--as well as the professionalism of our business people--combine to make Elizabethtown an excellent venue for meetings, conferences, conventions and business retreats?

The staff of the Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau is here to assist you. We can facilitate the collection of hotel proposals if more than twenty rooms are blocked for your function.  View pricing, regulations, and the many facilities that Elizabethtown has to offer.

Elizabethtown is centrally located within 400 miles of 12 major U.S. cities, and less than a 40 minute drive to the Louisville International Airport. Sitting at the intersection of three major highways---Interstate 65, the Bluegrass Parkway and the Western Kentucky parkway, we have all the vibrant attributes of a much larger city, but remain a charming small town. The variety of hotels with over 1400 rooms and fine restaurants may surprise you as well.
